This past weekend it honestly felt like summer in San Diego. Everyone in my complex was headed to the pool and I was actually thinking of doing the same which had me thinking what simple changes I can make to get ready for bathing suit season! I usually do outfit posts but today I thought I’d round up some easy and simple lifestyle swaps for you to get bikini ready without sacrificing too much!
1. Milk Chocolate for Dark Chocolate: I don’t know about you, but I just cannot give up my sweets so this is a great alternative for me. Dark chocolate has half the sugar or milk chocolate. You win right there.
2. Air Fresheners for Plants: House plants (like ferns) help clean the air filtering toxins by up to 90%, plus adding green plants to your home brightens it up!!
3. Refined Grains for Whole Grains: Refined grains offer no nutritional benefits and are devoid of fiber. Whole grains contain fiber plus protein, omega 3’s, vitamins, minerals and microbial nutrients.
4. Conventional Beef for Grass-fed Beef: Grass-fed beef is more expensive, but totally worth it. Basically, the cows are raised on pasture without the use of synthetic hormones, toxic pesticides, genetic modifications, clothing, or antibiotics. Need I say more?
5. Running Inside for Running Outside: Running outdoors stimulates your senses, improves your mood and helps you get more vitamin D.
6. Full Calorie Soda for Ten Calorie Soda: Sometimes you are craving a soda, I know, I’m guilty of it! Swap out those full calorie sodas for one of the Ten Beverages or Sodas. These are Ten 7UP, Ten Sunkist, Ten A&W and Ten Canada Dry. These each have full flavor but only ten calories so you don’t have to feel so guilty indulging! Special promotion here at Walmart! (Coupon is $.50 off of the purchase of two 2 liter bottles or two 4 pack cans of 7Up Ten, A&W Ten, Canada Dry Ten, RC Ten or Sunkist Ten soda! 3/27-4/17 while supplies last). Make sure to check them out on Facebook & Twitter!
7. Cough Medicine for Honey: Honey is a powerful anti-microbrial. Honey has been found to outperform cough medicine in every category: deducting the number of colds, severity of coughs, and improving sleep in both kids and adults. The most effective kinds are the darker varieties of raw honey which you can find at specialty stores.
Do you guys have any simple swaps?! Let me know in the comments below! xoxo
