Eat This, Not That!

I will begin by saying that I hate the "Eat This, Not That!" books. All they do is tell you which processed crap is lower in calories, both options still full of the same type of crud: chemical preservatives, hydrogenated oils / trans fats, dyes, etc.

These substitutions are truly healthier options, not just lower calories options:
