Super Swap Nutritionist Program

With the holidays upon us, and the pandemic among us, health is on the forefront of everyone's minds these days. Fret not! We are here to help you make delicious mindful choices with these easy breezy seven food swaps.

We are SO honored to partner with these top tier brands below that are shaking up the food industry with "super swaps" (but really!) that actually taste amazing! Now you can have your cake and eat it too... Let's dive into the brands--but be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post for a way to save 15% off ALL our brands' websites for the whole month of October 2020!

Banza. As the weather cools off and the days become shorter, there’s nothing like ending the day with your favorite comfort foods. Rather than filling up on empty carbs, why not try Banza’s chickpea products? They are low glycemic and gluten free, high in protein and fiber, and have more nutrients than traditional rice and pasta. They even have a vegan mac & cheese box!!! Say. No. More.

Just Date Syrup. We know the holidays are synonymous with sugar. I mean how can you possibly resist the delicious seasonal drinks and baked goods?! Impossible. I refuse. But what if you could swap out some of your sweeteners with more natural guilt-free sweeteners? We have the solution for you! Just Date Syrup makes yummy low-glycemic sweeteners from California fruits. These sweeteners are jam packed with nutrients- more than even honey and maple syrup! Wow, who knew right? The best part of Just Date Syrup is how versatile it is. You can use it in salad dressings, sauces, baking, beverages, cocktails, dessert. I mean the list could go on and on! This is the perfect swap for healthy holiday baking, cooking and drinking!

Kween Foods. Okay you guys, I’m really excited to talk about this one. Kween Foods has done the impossible: they have created the first-ever spreadable granola! They call it Granola Butter. Cool, right?! It can be used in the same ways nut butter is used, but because it’s oat based, anyone with nut allergies or dietary restrictions can enjoy it as well. And best of all, they have a chocolate flavor! I am drooling just thinking about it.

Lil Bucks (heck yeah!) I’m not biased or anything, but I’m stoked to tell you our Lil Bucks adaptogenic snacks are the must have this holiday season (as if you didn’t already know that! All of our products are great sources of fiber, plant-based protein, and magnesium. Top that with the fact that buckwheat is low glycemic and gluten free, and you have yourself the perfect holiday swap. We all crave cookies and other sweets during the holidays, so why not swap in our Clusterbucks as a cookie replacement?! Lil Bucks adds the perfect crunch to any baked good, smoothie, salad, yogurt, acai bowl. The list goes on and on! One bite and you’ll be hooked. To be honest I’m even snacking on some right now as I type this!

Rise Brewing. Okay what is the holiday season without seasonal drinks or themed lattes? I mean a fall without pumpkin spice lattes?! Never heard of her. Rise Brewing creates an ingenious idea by infusing nitrogen with their cold-brew resulting in a delicious, creamy, smooth drink that puts all the other high calorie alternatives to shame. We recommend the RISE Oat Milk Latte, it’s to die for!

Rhythm Superfoods. So maybe your weakness during the holidays is not sugar, but salty snacks. That’s okay because Rhythm Superfoods has a solution for you: organic snacks made from REAL fruits and veggies! Instead of the empty carb filled chips, take a bite of these bad boys. The beet and kale chips are all the rave, rightfully so as each bite packs a nutritious punch, filled with fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals. So go grab your favorite dipping sauce, and feel good about your snack choices.

Simple Mills. Okay, so Simple Mills, staying true to the brand, is really making things simple for you guys. They make crackers, cookies, frostings and baking mixes to name a few, that are gluten, grain, dairy, soy, GMO and artificial free. Guilt? Yeah, we don’t know him. With every product made with authentic, whole-food ingredients healthy eating has never been so easy! Their brownie mix will not only soothe your chocolate cravings, but it might even make you glow.

Curious to try any of these brands? For the month of October, you can use the code 15SUPERSWAP at checkout on any of their websites to get 15% off sitewide! Stock up on stocking stuffers, gifts, hosting treats, and snacks for...yourself. *Rhythm Superfoods code available on Amazon.
