Many times I get asked "what kind of things do you buy?" or "how do you eat?"  Let me first say that I am mostly vegan, but I understand that not everyone is able to eat that way yet.  All evidence points to the significant health benefits you get from going more plant based, so keep striving towards that direction.  In the meantime, work with where you are, always trying to make healthier choices.  You might not be able to do the healthiest option yet, but find a compromise until you're able to get there. It can be challenging to find healthier alternatives to your favorite foods.  Here are some 'dietitian approved' examples to get you started. Soon you will be able to click on each one to purchase online if you can't find them at local stores -stay tuned.
