When I used to have a terrible sweet tooth I devised a plan to stop sabotaging my healthy eating with sweet treats that made me go over the calorie limit.
Ice cream--a really good half-fat kind, like Lovin Scoopfuls or Breyer's, has a permanent home in my freezer--and in my heart.

Anytime a baking recipe calls for eggs I use egg beaters. I also use apple sauce instead of oil for my cakes and sometimes in place of part of the butter. I then bring it to work (before I have any).
