Dying for apple pie, potatoes & pasta? Here's how to fake it and satisfy cravings -- guilt free! 
Faked Potato!

Here are some clever ways to use innocent veggies to make sinful potato-y favorites!

Kale "Potato Chips" -- Lightly mist olive oil on some kale, then bake at 350 for ten minutes. Sound crazy?  Try it and see!

Radish "Hash Browns" -- Saute sliced radishes and onions with salt & pepper. A perfect companion for your egg white omelette. 

Cauliflower "Mashed Potatoes" -- Cook cauliflower (to death), mash with fat free margarine, fat free cheese, salt, pepper and garlic.

 

Baked Apple

Don't want all the fat and calories in a big honkin' slice of apple pie?  Try this:  Core a Rome (or Rome Beauty) apple, pour some sugar free black cherry soda over it and sprinkle with lots of Splenda & cinnamon.  Bake at 375 degrees for around 40 minutes.  Serve cold or hot with some low fat ice cream and/or a dollop of fat free Cool Whip on top.

 

Bean Sprout Pasta

This one sounds odd but it's insanely good.  Stir-fry bean sprouts, mushrooms and onions, making a faux pasta.  Top with fat free spaghetti sauce and low fat parmesan cheese.  Try this -- it's almost as good as real pasta!

 

Snazzy Substitutes...

Saute Veggies in chicken (or vegetable) broth instead of oil. You'll add flavor with almost no calories.

When baking, use applesauce instead of oil in your recipes.  It cuts lots of fat.

Fat free yogurt can be used instead of sour cream in dips, on potatoes and in recipes. Then bye-bye, Flab!
