I don’t know about you, but it was h-a-r-d for me to give up forbidden foods. It took me a year to give up Diet Coke! Even when I was able to leave behind foods I craved, I held onto a ton of resentment, crying in pillow about how unfair it was the “other people” got to eat what they wanted and I didn’t!
Then I discovered a sensational secret: Using an “instead of” made the process easy, creative, and downright fun!
Here’s how it works. Rather than giving up an item, I replaced it with something better!
“Instead of” giving up frying mushrooms and onions, I learned to saute’ them in olive oil and beef broth.
“Instead of” giving up milk, which is low acid-forming, I replaced it with unsweetened almond milk, which is low alkaline-forming.
Surprisingly, I no longer felt deprived because I didn’t leave a hole in my diet! Instead, I filled the hole with something even better!
