13 Healthier Alternatives To Your Favorite Junk Foods

Sometimes healthy foods taste like leaves and dirt, especially when compared to junk food. But eating healthy has tons of benefits. Spoon University has an alternative: give into your cravings, but swap it, don’t stop it. Here’s a list of our favorite healthy alternatives to our favorite junk foods.

1. Potato Chips

Instead of reaching for that bag of  potato chips, try kale chips. Okay, we admit that we’re not the biggest fans of kale, but kale chips are pretty good. Or, if you don’t have any kale, use lots of vegetables (or fruits) to make great veggie chips.

2. Fries

Instead of frying potatoes, why not try baking them in coconut oil? Get all the health benefits of coconut oil while giving those fries that crunchy, crispy texture. Who says all good fries have to be fried?

3. Mac & Cheese

Throw away that orange stuff in a box and make your own by adding some butternut squash in place of elbow macaroni. It will give your mac & cheese more texture and a hint of sweetness.
