Yes, you can have your cake and eat it, too! Enjoy and stay healthy!

1. Read all package labels very carefully. You don’t want to add unknown fats and sugars to your diet.
2. Try the milk step-down. If a recipe calls for cream, try whole milk. If it calls for whole milk, try 2 percent and so on.
3. Use less whole eggs. If a recipe calls for 3 eggs, try using 1 whole egg and two egg whites.
4. In baking, substitute 1 cup of applesauce for 1 cup of margarine or butter. For better results, don’t substitute all of the fat for applesauce just half or less of it.
5. Substitute artificial sweeteners for sugar. This will work in many recipes. There are so many to
choose from these days be sure to choose just the right one for your recipe.
6. Variety is the spice of life. When making low fat or low sugar desserts make sure there are plenty of good flavors.
7. Make all your own desserts. You’ll know exactly what’s in them.
8. Literally save room for dessert. Save your fat calories for dessert.
9. Share your dessert. You’ll save half the calories.
10. Eat any desserts you desire. Unless you’ve been otherwise medically advised, why not? Just eat them occasionally, once a month or week.
