15 Easy Food Swaps That’ll Make You Healthier

macaroni and cheese diet weight loss foodsThe Staple: Velveeta Shells & Cheese (1 box = 1180 calories)

The Swap: Kraft Macaroni & Cheese (1 box = 780 calories)

The Savings: Unless you have a hangover and will just die unless you get some Velveeta into your bloodstream, there’s really no reason to ever opt for it over Kraft Mac and Cheese. Or, as our Canadian friends call it, “Kraft Dinner.” The difference in calories and fat (36 grams vs. 15.5) makes it a no-brainer. And because they’re both that same awesome unnatural orange, you won’t feel let down at all. Promise.

The Scoop: If you really want to revert to third-grade eating habits in a not-too-unhealthy way, give Spaghetti Os a chance. The entire can will set you back a mere 340 calories and it only has two grams of fat. And think of all the fun you can have trying to skewer those little Os onto your fork! Bonus: tomato sauce contains the antioxidant lycopene, which is thought to help fight some cancers.

Next: Yogurt – it’s more fattening than you think
