Maintaining a healthy “diet” doesn’t mean that you have to eat bland food or be stuck with cabbages for the rest of your life (although cabbages can be very delicious when prepared the right way). In fact, with some creativity and easy swaps, you can still enjoy fries on occasion. The trick is to swap the harmful ingredients and bad fats for yummy alternatives – sweet potatoes and grass-fed ghee. Sweet potatoes are a nutrient-dense source of carbs, containing antioxidants, vitamins A & C, and potassium. Include them as a side dish to chicken drumsticks and with a hearty side salad. Bonus points if you add a tablespoon of sauerkraut to support your gut.

*Please note that I am not a big fan of the word “diet” because of its negative associations. I much prefer menu or personalized menu plan, thankyouverymuch. After all, the key is to create a program that works specifically for YOU. With that being said, we can all make some easy substitutions that are tasty AND healthy 🙂
