Creative Substitutions

Here are some creative and not so creative food substitutions that I have found and really like - and incorporate into my routine pretty often! 
Coke -- Coke Zero -- Berry LaCroix Sparkling Water

2 cups of coffee -- 1 cup of coffee and 2 cups of Japanese green tea

Cracker Barrel cheddar cheese planks -- Reduced Fat Sargento cheddar cheese sticks

Betty Crocker brownies from a box -- Peanut Butter and Fudge Vita Tops

Coffee Mate French Vanilla liquid -- Light Vanilla Silk Soymilk

Ranch Dressing Veggie Dip -- Sabra Hummus 2oz cups

Microwave bacon -- Microwave TURKEY bacon

BBQ Kettle style Chips -- BBQ PopChips

Regular sliced bread -- Sara Lee Delightful Wheat Bread

I hope you consider one of these next time you're at the grocery store!!!

I am not so much a fan of the berry LaCroix but LOVE (and have a can sitting in front of me ATM) the coconut. I also majorly heart the pamplemouse and like (although obviously not my favs) the lime and lemon.

Also, as a veggie dip substitiion, have you tried mixing the ranch dressing packets with greek yogurt? Most certainly not the same but I kind of like them. This weekend was my first go-around and I think next time I will cut back just a bit on the suggested amount of yogurt. Haven't checked the PPV but I've heard not bad at all.
