Calorie Savers

Small Additions, Big Flavor

To give a rich touch to lean dishes, cook with small amounts of toasted, chopped nuts or a drizzle of a flavorful olive oil. Half an ounce of a sharp cheese such as blue cheese or Parmesan can top a salad, soup, or sandwich. A 1-ounce piece of pancetta cut tiny and sauteed with olive oil, onion, garlic, and tomatoes makes a great smoky base for soups or pasta sauces. And 1 tablespoon of melted dark chocolate can be a healthy indulgence when drizzled over your favorite fruits.
