We’ve really enjoyed following former Olympian Summer Sanders’s progress as she writes about training for the Disney Princess Half Marathon over on espnW. One of the most striking things is how intense her regimen is. Reaching your peak physical form isn’t easy!

Of course, most of us aren’t training for a marathon, so we don’t need to do anything quite as trying as what Summer is undertaking. If you’re looking for an easy way to meet more modest fitness goals, in addition to exercising a little more, consider swapping out the most unhealthy elements of your diet with some more nutritious ones. With a little work and planning, you won’t have to sacrifice anything in the flavor department. Here are seven healthier alternatives to some everyday fast foods to get you started.

For more tips from Summer Sanders, check out her videos here.

Don’t Eat Potato Chips, Instead Make Kale Chips.

There are unhealthy snack foods and there are UNHEALTHY snack foods. Potato chips are UNHEALTHY. An 8 oz bag can have more than 1200 calories! And they’re high in sodium and fat to boot. For a healthier alternative, try making kale chips, which are much lower in calories and fat, but can still have all your favorite tastes combos, like sour cream and onion or barbecue.
