We all have our vices. For many of us, that means food.
Next time you find yourself eyeing the drive through, try these three recipes instead. These healthy alternatives are packed with all the flavor of fast food classics, without the unhealthy side effects. (If you're changing up your diet, consider adding NatureThin to the mix.

1. Oven Baked Mozzarella Sticks
What’s better than biting into a gooey mozzarella stick and watching that melted cheese stretch out and drip down. The stretchy cheese is a perfect parallel to how these old-fashioned treats stretch out your waistline. Don’t sit around munching fried cheese. Give the oven baked mozzarella sticks from Creme de la Crumb a shot. By cooking them in the oven, you still get the great crunch and the melted cheese, but you avoid all the other horrible oils and fats.
2. Almond Crusted Chicken Nuggets
The crunchy outside, the moist white meat inside, what’s not to like about a chicken nugget? They’re a delicious finger food that brings back memories of childhood. It's a shame they’re fried in all kinds of unhealthy oils. Try this recipe from Gimmie Some Oven instead. They’re just like the McNuggets you’re used to, but healthier, and you can make them at home in just 25 minutes.
3. Almond Milk Frosty
The soft serve shake is a classic part of the fast food experience. Of course blended ice cream tastes great, but it's going to leave you feeling bloated and tired. Try this healthy option from My Natural Family. It's made with almond milk for texture, and banana and honey for sweetness. Finish your meal with a cold dessert that tastes amazing and leaves you feeling refreshed.
These are a few incredible ways you can enjoy the taste you love without sacrificing your health.
Now get cooking, and enjoy these easy to make, healthy alternatives to fast food favorites.
