I spray nonstick spray on my popcorn and sprinkle with nutritional yeast

I've been enjoying baked spaghetti squash topped with pizza sauce and melted parmesan.

Shirataki Noodles aka Konjac Noodles. These have almost zero calories. I eat them once in awhile when I want to get my calorie count down. Google for details.

Zucchini Noodles over Spaghetti

The first thing to consider when making any type of noodles is the serving size. For regular wheat spaghetti noodles, one serving size is 2 ounces, or about 1 cup of cooked noodles. This includes 200 calories, 1 gram of fat, 42 grams of carbs, 3 grams of fiber, and 7 grams of protein. While pasta itself may not be unhealthy, portion control and topping choice are key (Harris, 2018). One cup of cooked pasta would fill about one fourth of a normal-size dinner plate, so if you normally load up a whole plate of pasta, thatís where the trouble begins.

On the other hand, 1 cup of cooked zoodles contains about 38 calories, less than 1 gram of fat, 7 grams of carbohydrates, and almost 3 grams of protein.

Good idea....I will remember that next time. I never have heavy cream in the house but I always have yogurt.

I use stevia in my coffee rather than sugar.

This morning I was reading a NYT recipe that called for 1 cup of heavy cream

Being a good Sparker I looked up a substitute. What a surprise.

To replace 1 cup (237 ml) of heavy cream, add 2 tablespoons (19 grams) of cornstarch to 1 cup (237 ml) of milk and whisk thoroughly. This lower-fat, lower-calorie substitute is best used in cooking. However, it may alter the texture of baked goods and wonít whip as well as heavy cream.

or

A mixture of Greek yogurt and whole milk is another alternative to heavy cream that will help you thicken up your recipes.

Greek yogurt is high in protein and can provide a healthy twist to your finished product by increasing the protein content.

Itís thicker than heavy cream, but you can add milk to thin it out and achieve a texture similar to that of heavy cream.

Blend together equal parts Greek yogurt and whole milk and use it in place of the same amount of heavy cream.

What suggestions do you have for Lower Calorie Substitutes?
