Secrets of Success

Recipe Makeovers



Minipizza w/whole-grain pitta, low-fat cheese, homemade tomato sauce & extra lean ham is 1 of my fav dishes & it doesn't pack a lot of calories! Figure out ways to enjoy your fav food w/ a healthy twist. Get creative!

I can even enjoy chocolate milk w/ skim milk & 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder or healthy sandwiches loaded w/ veggies, melted low-fat cheese & lean meat. They're yummy, fulfulling & the possibilities are endless!

I also replaced fries w/ thin slices of baked potato. Crunchy!

    I buy Jarlsburg Lite cheese. At Costco it costs about half what they charge at my local grocery store. It has about 1/3 the calories & fat of regular cheese ---and it doesn't taste like plastic. You can't eat a ton of it, but a slice or two will fit nicely into most diets. I like it rolled up in a Whole Wheat Roll-up, 110 calories (or 55 for 1/2) also available at Costco, with tomato sauce & mushrooms, heated in the microwave. If I have lots of leftover calories, I might add turkey pepperoni, too. Yum! - by STORMY724
