Healthy substitutes

As much as we all love food, we need to be conscious of our health and the role the food we eat plays in our well being.

I’m a firm believer that our lifestyle, daily activities have an impact in our health.

The goals should be:

  • If you have no illnesses- you should keep it this way! By prevention ie. eating right, eating the right food and exercise etc.
  • If you have a chronic disease- you should be concerned about preventing complications by doing as above and any other things specific to your disease.

enough babbling, moral of the story today is : Try harder to stay away from butter when cooking/ as bread spread and Sunflower oil

i know it tastes delicious but if you want to continue tasting things delicious, it’s best to find substitutes.

So what are the possible substitutes?

– Substitute butter for margarine high in omega 3 and 6. Actually any margarine is better than butter!

– You can also replace butter/sunflower oil with Canola oil, Olive oil, Vegetable oil- whichever you can afford. Obviously extra-virgin olive oil is best in this category.

There you go- Health advice of the week!

I'm a multi-faceted young woman. I'm a proud mom to a now 5 year old 😜. I'm a daughter, I'm a sister and a friend to a few people. I'm a medical doctor by profession, passionate about infectious disease, primary health care and public health. I live food, from thinking about it, cooking it to eating it. Health and Nutrition fanatic. I live by a few chants...: 1. Before I do anything whether related to food or not, I ask myself ' Is it worth the calories?' Whether literally or figuratively( i.e. Is the decision worth the stress, effort, investment) 2. What you put in must come out! If you don't let it out, it settles on your tummy and hips. 3. 'Everything happens for a reason'. I try reflect on situations I find myself in, whether by choice or not. And look for Lessons I'm meant to learn from them, in order to grow.
