Behavior Exchange

Most of our wellness improvement efforts involve changing our behaviors. To make behavior change a little less stressful, exchange and unhealthy behavior for a healthy one. Its easier to exchange behaviors then to simply quit a behavior.

Since we are having a healthy recipe challenge for the next two months, try exchanging white carbohydrates for whole grains which have more fiber.

Exchange Ideas:
White bread for whole grain bread
White rice for brown rice, wild rice or quinoa
White pasta for whole grain pasta, or chickpea pasta 
                                                                (protein & fiber)
