There are plenty of ways to keep your waistline trim and heart
in good shape while still enjoying the treats you love to eat.

simple substitutions will give you ideas for turning those high

and healthy meals.

the total fat and saturated fat in your current recipes, as well
as boost fiber. For example, when a recipe calls for flour and butter thickener, try a dollop of pureed mashed potatoes for thick and rich soup or gravy.
