5 Minor Grocery Swaps for Major Health Improvements

If you’re wondering what changes you should make to your grocery shopping list, you’ve come to the right place.

See the slideshow below to learn which five, simple grocery swaps you can make to significantly improve your health:

1.  Extra virgin coconut oil for canola oil

Canola oil is one of the most commonly used oils for cooking in America; however, unfortunately, as much as 87% of its production is genetically modified. The hybridized oil has been linked to¬†birth defects, blood abnormalities, and cancer. With that said, extra virgin coconut oil is undoubtedly a healthier cooking oil substitute; not only is it proven to improve brain health, boost your metabolism, and prevent heart disease, but it’s the most stable cooking oil, meaning its chemical properties change the least out of any other oil exposed to heat, thereby retaining the most nutritional value.
