I make a latte every morning, and even with low fat milk, the calorie total is over 200 ( I can not do skim milk - ick). I switched to Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk and get a whole latte for only 40 calories! Yummm!

I tried a recipe where you substituted cooked cauliflower for mashed potatoes and it was wonderful. Now I substitute cauliflower in all my potato recipes. So I thought, why not see what other things I could substitute cauliflower for that would be as good. I now use cauliflower as a substitute for pasta, with a low fat pasta sauce it is every bit as good as spaghetti or macaroni. This saves hundreds of calories and is really good.
To substitute for mashed potatoes, just boil up a head of cauliflower, drain and mash. For a pasta substitute cook flowerettes, drain and use your favorite low fat sauces. Top with a bit of Parmesan.4
I like milk, but sometimes the taste just doesn't appeal. In order to enjoy my milk more I add a couple of tsp of sugar free coffee flavoring (my favorite is DaVinci SF French Vanilla). It is like a milk shake flavor without the calories of ice cream. I also like this over cereal--no need for added sugars or substitutes.244
