Applesauce

Applesauce can be substituted for vegetable oil. It contains less than half of the calories and almost none of the fat grams. It's also very, very easy to make yourself.

Mushrooms

Add mushrooms in your sauces and everywhere else you can. They contain very few calories but much protein taste awesome too since they absorb the taste of anything you've cooked like little sponges!

Ginger

I add ginger to a lot of the foods I cook. Ginger is a good remedy for most stomach ailments and adds a spicy kick to foods. It's great with chicken, veggies, and shrimp. I also like to add it to my marinara sauce. It adds kick and cuts down on the heartburn, too!

magic bullit helps big time

my magic bullit helps with grinding regular oats into oat bran so that i can add that to almost everything i cook. oat bran adds a great deal of both the fibers. it will puree fruit so that i can add that instead of butter, oils or sugars. it is a very small appliance that saves me calories. :)
