I have learned to eat egg whites or egg white substitutes along with shrimp as my primary protein sources because they are so low in calories--more bang for my buck!

Devin Alexander Cookbooks

Devin takes the food we love, ups the nutrition, lowers the calories and fat, and keeps it tasting just as good as the original. She wrote the Biggest Loser cookbooks, Fast Food Fix (which takes fast food favorites and makes them healthier), and The Most Decadent Diet Ever (my current favorite).

Substitute Raw Sugar for Honey

Most recipes that call for honey can substitute sugar. Instead of using refined white sugar, use Sugar in the Raw. This will greatly decrease your overall sugar and carbohydrate intake while giving your body something it can digest more easily. Natural is always the best option!

lower calorie banana bread

For a lower calorie, fat free banana bread, substitute unsweetened applesauce for the shortening and splenda for the sugar. It's good and moist.
