What would you say are the easiest SAD-to-Paleo food switches that newbies could make?
I'm writing a magazine article about obesity for a very general audience and have the chance to put in a tiny bit about the Taubes hypothesis. My editor wants three easy diet switches that would be better for blood sugar control.
What's your favorite? Note that I'm not really looking for paleo substitutions, with coconut flour and seaweed noodles and whatnot. More like a reframing from processed and bad carbs to unprocessed and good fats.
handful of pretzels --> handful of almonds
gooey milk chocolate --> pure dark chocolate
pizza --> omelet or frittata with all the same toppings
french fries --> roasted sweet potatoes
blueberry muffin --> walnuts and blueberries (with a splash of heavy cream?)
burrito with rice in a tortilla --> burrito fillings on crispy greens
