1) French fries, especially piping hot from the fryer are divine, but play havoc with your waist line. If you’ve got to have that flavor, you can thinly slice fresh potatoes, spray with cooking oil, sprinkle with salt and herbs like chili flakes, basil or oregano, or freshly ground pepper and bake. Even better is to substitute baked sweet potato fries. Sweet potatoes are full of fiber and beta carotene; that’s where they get their beautiful orange color.

 

2) Flavored yogurts are high in sugar, and unless you buy nonfat, have a substantial amount of fat. Choose plain nonfat yogurt and add your own flavors with sliced fruit and chopped nuts, and a splash of vanilla extract. Use organic honey as a sweetener or even a bit of fruit jam. Start with just a teaspoon, you can always add more but you can’t take the sweetener out.
