16 Healthy Junk Food Swaps

16 Healthy Junk Food Swaps

I sometimes do round -ups on this blog to help organize my recipes.  I have close to 400 recipes on this blog- and almost  no organization.   Trust me, I am working on that.  It is just taking time.   Some of my older recipes- which were quite good have gotten pushed to the bottom of this blog, and are hardly ever shared anymore.   Some of these recipes are actually some of my favorite ones.

Most of my recipes are ” Healthy Swaps”. ¬†But here are some of my favorite. ¬†Craving a milkshake? ¬†Craving French Fries? ¬†Here are 16 ” Healthy Snack Swaps” that will fit the bill.
