Easy Ways to Sneak in Cutting Calories Without Anyone the Wiser!

Are you trying to get your family to eat healthier, but all they do is put up a fuss? Here are some sneaky ways to cut those extra calories without them ever knowing… wink…..wink. I did this with my family and they never tasted the difference..in fact they “LOVED” my cooking!

  • Use egg whites in place of whole eggs (for example: 4 egg whites in place of 2 whole eggs) in any recipe
  • Splenda granulated in place of sugar while baking
  • Splenda brown sugar in place of regular brown sugar
  • Light sour cream in place of regular sour cream on your baked potatoes, tacos or quesadillas
  • Low fat cottage cheese instead of regular cottage cheese
  • Apple sauce in place of vegetable oil while baking
  • Use 1% or skim milk in place of whole milk
  • Bake your breaded chicken cutlets instead of frying them!
  • 10% lean ground beef/sirloin instead of 30%
  • Baked potato chips instead of regular chips
  • Low sodium canned soup (if this is a must)
  • Light mayonnaise or try mustard on sandwiches
  • 2% skim cheese instead of regular cheese on tacos, grilled cheese sandwiches…..
