My husband and I are both Type 2 diabetics and he has heart problems but we love a good old fashion Sugar Cookie! We found that Smart Balance butter substitute and Splenda let us continue to indulge! Just be careful when selecting Splenda as it also has a half Splenda half real sugar product.
Smart Balance is also good for preparing sauted onions and garlic, etc. Unlike margerines it does not separate out into a clear liquid and globs of goo. Three Tablespoons a day is also supposed to help lower cholesterol levels. It gets our vote! 205
was horrified today when I had toast for the first time and realised that my normal spread was going to total over 80 calories! Great substitute and much tastier, low fat cheese triangles, 17g only 25 calorie!
Thinly slice Cucumbers,Tomatoes,Green Peppers in rounds.Add a pinch of Black Pepper and Mustard Powders to a fat free Spread and mix well.Spread on slices of Bread of choice,place the sliced Veggies on top and cover with another slice.Cut in triangles and enjoy a light and healthy Snack anytime.
I beat together Nutrilite or any low fat Butter substitute with a pinch of Black Pepper,Mustard Powders and finely chopped Fresh Mint /Cilantro or Alfalfa Sprouts and keep in "Fridge.Use it as a Spread instead of Butter and layer with the thinly sliced Veggies for a nutritious Snack!!!
