Healthy menu substitutions

See also

Healthy menu substitutions consist of replacing the bad with the good so to speak. Instead of ordering fries with your hamburger replace the fries with zucchini, fruit, or coleslaw.

Replacing items that are high in saturated fats and carbohydrates for foods that are healthy will make a big difference. Healthy choices in diet selection is the best way to get on the road to a healthy life.

Laura Loesch Quintin is quoted on the website 10 healthy alternatives to French fries. "Sometimes there’s simply no substitute for a crispy, salty French fry. And we’re all for indulging…every so often."

She then quotes Marissa Lipper, "There’s a world of crunchy fruit and veggie snacks that are relatively low in calories, plus they’re packed with antioxidants, fiber and good fats to boot. So reach for one of those next time the fry hankering hits–we’ve compiled a list of ten recipes for you. And don’t worry, they’re still crispy and salty."
