Eat this, Not that: My version

Many of you have probably heard of a book called Eat This, Not That, a nutrition book from Men's Health magazine that simplifies eating out by telling readers what foods not to order and what healthier option to order instead. I decided to make a mini version just for fun. So here we go:


For something sweet...

Eat This:

A homemade cake made with love (and real butter in sugar) by mon ami francais when he came to visit :)

Not That:
High fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, cellulose gum...eww.

For an enjoyable beverage...

Drink This:
"Red, red wine will make you feel so fine. Keeps me rockin' all of the time..." When enjoyed in moderation, you can get antioxidant benefits from red wine. Cheers to that!

Not That:
The infamous "Panty Dropper" martini. LOTS of liquor!  Only to be ordered on birthdays and shared with at least 5 people. Whenever you drink liquor, make sure you also drink plenty of water. 

For a yummy classic pancake topper:

Eat this:

Not low-cal, but very flavorful so you don't need a lot.

Not that:
Same amount of calories, but contains no actual maple syrup. Ingredients: Corn Syrup, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Water, Sugar...and a bunch of chemicals.

For a burger:
Eat this:

A Ted's bison burger. Bison tastes a lot like beef, but I like it because it feels less greasy and has less calories and saturated fat. At Ted's, you can also get an oatie wheat bun or without a bun and with cottage cheese.

Not that:


A quadruple bypass burger! 8,000 calories!

Happy Friday, everyone! Have a good weekend!
