Health Tip of the Day

Healthy Strategies for Dessert

  • Reduce the amount you make. Make cupcakes for individual portions.

  • Serve less, eat less. Use smaller plates to fool the eye.

  • Substitute lighter ingredients. You can often use egg whites or egg substitutes for a substantial cut in calories and fat.

  • Be fat-free when you can. Fat-free cream cheese works fine in recipes for lighter cheesecakes and icing.

  • Think before you eat. If you know dessert is going to be important, decrease what you eat before it.
