In the Bender Kitchen: The Healthiest of our Favorite Unhealthy Foods

CT Style

(WTNH) — Bianca Jade, Lifestyle Expert and Founder of, has found the healthiest versions of our guilty pleasures that will help us stick to our New Year’s resolutions.

  • Oatmeal: Instead of the usual sugary breakfast treats, try Modern Oatmeal. It is a non-GMO, Kosher, Vegan alternative without the excess of sugar.
  • Bacon: Turkey bacon is a great alternative for bacon lovers. It’s leaner and has less cholesterol and fat. Remember: find a brand without additives.
  • Potato Chips: Check out fruit and veggie chips. Try making your own kale chips. Sprinkle a little oil, salt, pepper, and lemon juice and bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Enjoy!
  • Cookies: Check out Smart Cookies for the kids available at Target. The cookies are made from vegetables.
  • Soda: Soda can be a big weakness for anyone. If you can’t seem to break your soda drinking, try Zevia. It’s a non-GMO soda used with the all-natural sweetener Stevia.
