TopicCraving Sugary Foods - 4 Tips to Stop Sugar Cravings
When baking your favorite chocolate chip cookies use sugar free chocolate chips low fat margarine a sugar Alpha Armor Review substitute and three tablespoons oat bran for extra fiber. If your recipe calls for eggs add them before adding the sugar substitute as it has a tendency to stick to the margarine. Adding one-teaspoon baking powder makes cookies light and chewy.
Most meat and chicken dishes are not complete without their accompanying gravy. Make tasty reduced calorie gravy by combining low sodium chicken or beef soup with one teaspoon granulated onion and one half teaspoon granulated garlic with a fine flour such as Wondra(TM). Whisk the flour into the liquid a little at a time until you reach desired consistency.
The next time you roast a turkey make your own fruit compote instead of using canned cranberry sauce. Combine one-cup fresh cranberries one cup frozen blueberries one diced medium apple with skin left on one medium diced onion one cup reduced sugar orange juice one half cup sugar substitute and one quarter cup sherry. Bring to a boil lower to simmer and cook until cranberries pop. This thickens on its own and freezes well.
If you are watching your carbohydrate intake but love potatoes cut one large potato with the skin left on into small chunks season with a salt free seasoning. Place in a shallow baking pan and add one-tablespoon low fat margarine and one-tablespoon extra virgin olive oil. When potatoes are almost tender add a package of your favorite frozen vegetables and continue baking until potato and vegetables are tender. Top with sliced almonds for an added nutritional boost.
