Healthy Snack Swaps for the New Year

table of fruits

Each year many people take the time to evaluate their lives and decide to make New Year’s Resolutions. Many of these resolutions often have to do with someone’s lifestyle and eating habits. Prime Planet knows how hard it can be to find healthy substitutes that people can stick with, even after they get a few weeks into the new year. 

Thankfully, in today’s market, “eating healthier” doesn’t mean only eating plain salads with chicken on top. The healthy food market has made healthier options and alternatives easier, more available, and more affordable. Our experts have put together a list of healthy snack swaps and other alternatives you can try for the new year. 


Healthy Substitutes to Try

There are many swaps out there that will let anyone stick to their new year’s resolutions without giving up the things they enjoy in life. First, you should remember that our tostones are a delicious and healthy alternative to the classic potato chip, especially with all five of our flavors:

What are some other healthy alternatives? We’ve included some of our favorites below.


Corona Extra Swapped for Corona Premier

If you are someone who enjoys beer, then switching out the standard Corona Extra (148 calories) for a Corona Premier (90 calories) can still let you enjoy the smooth taste of a Corona beer while only consuming about ⅔ of the calories. Though the alcohol content is 0.6% less in the Premier version, so are the calories and carb count.

If you want an alcoholic beverage, but you aren’t a beer person, Corona and many other beer brands have also come out with seltzers. These are generally lower in calorie count, and they come in various great flavors.


Ice Cream Swapped for Pressed Freeze

If you are looking for a swap to satisfy your sweet tooth, our team has found just the thing. Ice cream (around 580 calories) can be swapped for Pressed Freeze (120 calories). This is a non-dairy, plant-based, and no-refined sugar version of the delicious frozen treat. Pressed Freeze also has fewer carbs than normal ice cream and can be found in many flavors. Some of their unique flavors include Citrus Freeze, made of oranges, apples, pineapples, dates, and coconuts, and their Roots Freeze, which contains a blend of carrots, lemons, dates, beets, apples, ginger, and coconuts.


Soda Swapped for OLIPOP

Sometimes cracking open an ice-cold can of soda is so refreshing. But when you think about the sugars and calories, it can take away some of that enjoyment. If a carbonated, cold, flavored drink is something you are craving, then try grabbing an OLIPOP or Poppi. A regular 12 oz can of coke has 140 calories, 39 grams of sugar, and 39 grams of carbs. Alternatively, a 12 oz can of vintage cola-flavored OLIPOP is 35 calories, 2 grams of sugar, and 12 grams of carbs. Poppi sodas (25 calories for 12 oz) have prebiotics to help your immunity, and they might also aid in digestion, lowering cholesterol, and might even help promote weight loss. With either option, you can enjoy a similar taste with less guilt! 


Gummy Candy Swapped for SmartSweets

Many New Year’s resolutions are ruined by a sweet tooth or a craving that is hard to find healthy snack swaps for. However, brands like SmartSweets, which create gummy candies, hard candies, and caramels that contain only a few grams of sugar, allow people to enjoy the sweeter things in life! They come in a variety of flavors, but all bags have 4 grams of sugar or less.
