It’s no secret that the Standard American Diet (SAD) is, well, pretty sad! It’s causing us all to be obese, unhealthy, dis-eased, cancerous, diabetic, autistic, nervous, mentally ill, …pill-poppers.
Sounds pretty bad, right? Well, there’s something you can do about it. You can start by making some good choices in your diet.
To help you do that, I’ve put together a list of replacements for common, far less healthy foods. If you make some of these substitutions, you’ll be on your way to better health.
The table below tells you what Healthy Alternatives to use. I’ve also linked many of them to some really great InfoGraphics that expand on each one for your edification and enjoyment.
