Dr. Fred Schofield, at Atlas Chiropractic in Northwest Phoenix, has said for over 34 years “the easiest way to eat healthy is to have fun making healthy food”.

Cauliflower Rice Satisfaction with a Fraction of the Calories
Just shred cauliflower and sauté it as you would with rice. Add your favorite spices as you would with traditional rice. Cauliflower rice will leave you satisfied, but save you hundreds of calories.
Switch Pasta with Veggie Noodles
Just as there are many ways to make pasta from grains, there are also many ways to make noodles from veggies. You can use a spiral slicer and turn zucchini or squash into noodles. You can bake a spaghetti squash and scrape out those nature made noodles. Another alternative is to use a traditional veggie peeler to create long noodles strips from zucchini.
Lettuce or Collard Wrap – “The UnWich”
If you have ever been to a Jimmy Johns Sandwich Shop chain restaurant you may hear them yell “UnWich”. The “UnWich” is when they use the shell of iceberg lettuce instead of bread on any of their sandwiches. Use Romaine Lettuce or Collard leaf at home to make this choice even healthier.
High Quality Protein Powder mixed with Flour
Next time you make pancakes replace 50% of the flower with a high quality protein powder. You just switched a negative meal into a positive and tasty meal.
Cook with Coconut Oil
Coconut oil increases your body’s fat burning ability and reduces appetite.

Replacing coffee, tea, soda and processed fruit juice with water could change your life forever. These traditional drinks deplete your of body of energy and water is needed for your body to cleanse and produce health.
