The entire Academy of Culinary Nutrition curriculum is focused on teaching our students how to make every bite count. Sure, getting into the kitchen and whipping up tasty dishes is ultra fun, but we also want every recipe our students create to be packed with the most nutrient-dense, healing and nourishing ingredients on the planet.
There are a lot of junky foods out there, from the refined white flours and sugars that throw our blood sugar out of balance to the GMO-laden vegetable oils that activate our immune systems and cause inflammation.
And when you’re first stepping onto the health train, it can be difficult to figure out what you can use to replace your familiar cooking standbys. That’s why we created this handy infographic of healthy substitutions that has totally got you covered.
So whether you’re searching for a substitute for coffee, margarine, bread crumbs, dairy milk, cooking spray or enriched white pasta, we’ve got a load of ideas that are not only delicious, but offer you a ton of nutritional kapow.
Check out our absolute favourite culinary nutrition swaps below.
