I make my own granola bars, muffins, quick breads, cookies, whole wheat crackers, pancake mix and other desserts so I can control the amount of sugar and cut out preservatives. I use natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, banana, sweet potato or unsweetened applesauce. I find cinnamon makes a good replacement for sugar. I also make brownies and blondies with black beans and chickpeas. I make yogurt pops, banana pops and frozen yogurt for a replacement for frozen desserts. For easy oatmeal cookies, you can just mash a banana into some oats, unsweetened cocoa powder, add some blueberries and nuke it in the microwave for 2 mins. Popcorn is a better alternative to chips and crackers, you can add your own flavouring and goodies like nuts. Roll up sliced banana in a whole wheat tortilla with cream cheese and honey and then toast it in a pan or make your own whole wheat crepes with yogurt and fruit.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
