I got such a great response to my counting calories post that I decided to share some ways that I made our pantry healthier. I am in no way giving out health advice just sharing things that we eat on a daily basis that are considered good for you :) Affiliate links used.

Braggs Liquid Aminos instead of Soy Sauce//
They're both made with soy but Braggs has less sodium (320 vs 980) and no added preservatives and tastes just as good, while being a healthier choice. Kinsey thinks this IS soy sauce.
La Croix Sparkling Water instead of Soda//
The bubbly refreshing taste of naturally flavored carbonated water minus the overload of sugar and HFCS. I'm not a big soda drinker so this hits the spot for me.
Vegenaise instead of Mayonnaise//
Now this is a completely personal swap- I don't like the overpowering smell of egg that accompanies jarred mayo (and am too lazy to make my own.) Taste wise Veganaise is on par with mayo and is plant-based (soy) making it a healthier choice for me.
Garlic Powder instead of garlic salt//
I love me my garlic powder!!! I put it in pretty much everything. My trifecta of spices is salt (but only a little) pepper and garlic powder. It gives the flavor of garlic without the sodium overdose.
Coconut Spray Oil instead of PAM//
Coconut oil is having a moment, isn't it? I'm not a crazy coconut person (I'm not big on the flavor but do enjoy the smell) we do use it every day to keep food from sticking to our pans while cooking. Coconut is high in good fats and oh so convenient due to these spray nozzles. Ditch the chemicals and go with coconut.
Nuts and Sunflower Seeds instead of croutons//
Now, I don't have anything against croutons but if you want to save yourself some calories add seeds and nuts to your salad. Of course, make sure you're reading your labels because some nuts though high in good nutrients (omega fatty acids= good fats) can also be calorie-dense; but I feel better knowing I'm getting my calories in a healthier way.
