Just Swap - Doesn't It Make Sense ?

Are we getting more health conscious? I have been reading quite a few articles recently that say 'green' vegetable sales are improving. In my weekend magazine from Waitrose it states "Courgettes (Zucchini) sales have increased by 13% over last years sales, and Spring Greens, Kale, Spinach and White Cabbage sales have also increased." Many more people are now using the low carb vegetable alternatives, rather than the higher carb foods, such as pasta and rice. A lower carb alternative does not cause the blood sugar spikes, especially important if you are a diabetic ... but increasingly those who are looking for a healthier lifestyle such as LCHF (low carb high fat) find the swap you make so worthwhile to your general health and well-being. You only have to look at this blog and many other 'low carb' blogs to see the many positive outcomes people are experiencing.

Doesn't the food look great?  And it is, just tastes superb.

It is the perfect swap and the way how to turn a "balanced diet" into a high fat/low carb one. If you put almost any LC vegetable side dish into a calculator which counts calories and nutrients, the summary result will be - the most (close to 90) calories come from dressings, oils or a butter.

An interesting spin, Jan and very nice images to tempt a change - must pass blog link on to diabetic OH.

"All the best Jan"... after all these years... you wouldn't be a shy songbird would you? ;-)

Hi Shirley, many thanks for your comment. Do hope the link provides a 'spin' on many recipe ideas. It is so good to try out different ideas.

I do love singing (although it may be more of an out of tune screech I'm told LOL ) ... but I don't think I'm your 'shy songbird'

Have a good weekend, hope it's gardening, and bird watching, weather where you are.

All the best Jan
