Small swaps can really add up! ❤️ Here are some more healthy substitutes to add to your routine. Breakdown below:
🍫 The milk chocolate bar has a whooping 44g carbs, 41g sugar only 2g fiber and 370 calories! The dark chocolate bar shown on the other hand had 13g carbs, 6g sugar, 5g fiber & 250 calories. With dark chocolate, you’ll feel fuller faster with the add fiber & won’t go through such a big insulin spike & crash.
🌽 Vegetable oil and canola oils are highly processed, heated, bleached, refined and deodorized. The hight heat these oils go through have negative impact on the healthy compounds in the oils & are stripped of much of their omega-3 fatty acids in the processing. Extra Virgin Olive oil is produced by cold pressing and doesn’t use chemicals for refinement & also avoids high heat treatment, leaving it full of heart healthy fats.
🥑 Sour cream adds about 40 calories & 6g of fat per quarter cup but doesn’t add much nutritionally. Guacamole on the other hand adds antioxidants, about 4g of fiber, potassium + more per quarter cup. Plus, you get all the heart healthy fats from the avocado.

Follow my friend @vegainstrength for more memes. He's in the same wave with what I do ✊ I have to repost this as it's one of the most common thing a typical human with a typical mindset would think -
Please tag someone who still believes vegans only eat grass and need to supplement with the rest 😅 I mean just go to hashtags like whatveganseat or veganfoodshare 😍 Or check out my food channel @vegainsfood 🥞🙌🏼
🍕You literally can make every animal product vegan nowadays and mostly healthier and always cruelty free 🐷💚
So going vegan doesn’t mean you will sacrifice anything but rather open yourself to a whole new variety of plants 😋 + you are doing the animals, the planet and your health a tremendous favour 🍀💪🏼 letfoodbeyourmedicine
One of the main reasons people don’t follow through with a workout program is because of “lack of time”. But studies show that for the majority of people, this can be fixed by simply writing down what your days look like on a time schedule. This will help you see what you can move around, decrease time doing, or fill down time gaps with.
However, I’m a firm believer that if it’s a PRIORITY to you, you’ll find a way to make it happen. Some of the people I work with here at Evolution wouldn’t workout if they didn’t have an appointment. They say they don’t have much time but yet they have time to make their appointments each week. Funny how that works right? People have more of an incentive to workout if they have an appointment of which, they made time for rather than trying to workout on their own. Therefore the time existed all along, they just didn’t move things around to get the workouts in.
If time is tight for you and that’s why you aren’t exercising regularly, try getting a time journal where you document your entire day. You don’t have to do this forever but just a couple of days to give you a better understanding of what you can do to fit in an effective workout. If you want it bad enough, you’ll find a way. Otherwise, you’ll find an excuse.
Lunch of tuna and sweercorn pasta for me and Joshua. .
Was a busy day yesterday with trying to drive to every call as a community carer... driving wasn't too bad but kept getting stuck which was ridiculously annoying after the 4th or 5th time 😠
Day off today for me and my little man as college is shut. Spent the morning doing crafts .
🔥TACKLING THE TIME BARRIER TO EXERCISE
The most frequent reason given for not exercising is lack of time. A lack of time to do anything can make your day stressful especially if you’re trying to do something that will improve your health and your body. But usually the remedy for the issue with time is to look at your schedule a little closer and see how you can prioritize things throughout your day. Something like getting a time journal which will allow you to keep track of what you do during your day to get a general sense of how you use your time. You may find out just how much extra time you’d have if you didn’t spend as much time watching TV, surfing the web, or social media. In this picture there are some other ways to help you open up some extra time to get your workouts in.
▪️Take your kids with you. Join a gym that offers a day care service or take the little ones on walks with you.
▪️Set your alarm clock for an earlier time. This goes back to what’s a priority. Go to bed earlier to wake up earlier so you can workout.
▪️Choose something over nothing. Moving is better than not moving at all. Try and sneak a walk in on your lunch break. Or decrease your workout times by lowering your rest periods. You don’t have to workout for 5 hours a day.
▪️Make your workout fun. You’ll make it more of a priority if you actually enjoy training.
These are only some of the ways you can add some extra time to your day so you can get your workouts in. But remember the most important is how you prioritize your day. You’ll make time for what’s truly important to you and you’ll make excuses for the rest.
