3. Swap pizza for skinny sausage parmesan-stuffed eggplant

4. Swap instant ramen for gluten-free instant noodle cups


“Fresh vegetables and savory miso broth are a huge upgrade from the salty MSG-laden packet of flavoring in that instant ramen you may be tempted to make post-split. If you’re not gluten intolerant, this works just as well with regular ramen.”

9. Swap a Snickers bar for chocolate-covered blueberries


“It’s not your imagination; chocolate really does contain mood-boosting chemicals. Pairing it with blueberries adds an antioxidant bonus and trims the calories. But these are so delicious, you might want to make just a half (or a quarter) of a batch at a time. Or call a good friend to share.”
