Eating healthy doesn't always have to be a complete dietary reboot. Sometimes just skipping one ingredient can decrease calories or adding another can up nutritional value. Increasing your almond intake can help you to cut down on those vending machine snacks and trying a new grain like quinoa could spice up a salad.

The best news is that most of these changes can be made with ingredients you already have in your pantry. 

Check out the slideshow above for easy swaps to cut calories.
