Here is a great idea from Dawn - Thanks!
Hi there
i've followed low fat eating for a long time, but
cannot eat salads without some kind of dressing on
them. as most dressings contain oil i thought i'd try to come up with a low fat version.
this is quick and easy and other kinds of vinegars can
be used instead of the wine one that i use.
for one person
2tbls lemon juice
2tbls white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp english mustard
black pepper
put all ingredients together in a small bowl
mix with spoon or whisk to combine
poor over salads
you can make large quantities of this and store in
fridge as it keeps for ages
other vinegars can be used: cider, tarragon.
lime juice can replace the lemon juice
different mustards can be used instead of english
this recipe is fat free and once poured onto salads
you could not tell that it has no oil added
i've tried this on several people and all ask where i
bought the dressing from
hope this is useful to your recipe page
yours faithfully
dawn d



Come On GUYS - It's quick and easy to send in your ideas or answer a question!! Here's a new QUESTION for you!!
i am looking for a low fat version of date and oatmeal squares. Is there anything I can use in the base and the topping instead of margarine?The base and top have sugar flour bak. powder bak.soda and the margarine. Hope you can help! Vera.

Hi guys!
Believe it or not not just one but two answers for you Vera. Check these out...
And Thanks to Maddy and Jen!

Hi... I have been informed that by using applesauce in place of oil. ...margarine. or butter. or shortening.. you will have the same great taste in desserts.....with half the fat.. Enjoy !! Maddy

Have you tried using honey? I have found that using honey and cutting back on the amount of margarine keeps the top crisp and lowers the fat tons!!! Jen

Do you have a recipe for fat-free-- or nearly fat-free, tortillas? thanks.

NEW Hey here's a good one from Mr. Whipple (I have no idea what the calorie content would be - but it looks really good!)

Italian Beef Roll

4 servings 1 slice round steak, 1/2 inch thick (1 1/2 pounds)
1/2 pound pork, ground
1/4 pound prosciutto, ground
1/4 freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup chopped parsley, preferably Italian
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
3/4 chopped onion
1 clove garlic, finely minced
3 tablespoons Cognac
1/2 cup of dry red wine
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon oregano
1 cup Beef Stock

1. Pound a steak with a mallet until the steak is one-quarter inch thick.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground pork,prosciutto,cheese,egg, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste. Spread the mixture on the flattened steak; roll up tightly like a jelly roll and turn in the ends to seal. Tie securely with a string.
3. Heat the oil and butter in a skillet and brown the roll on all sides.
Add the onion and garlic and sauté until wilted. Remove from the heat. Warm the Cognac, add to the skillet, and ignite. When the flame has burned out, return to the heat. Add the wine and simmer until it is nearly evaporated. Stir in the tomato paste, oregano, and beef stock and simmer about 45 minutes. To serve, remove the roll from the sauce and cut into one-inch slices. Poor the sauce over the slices and serve with noodles.

Here's a great hint from Safiyah
Hi! Just use 2 egg whites for each egg instead, its a fresh source and less chemicals than egg substitute! If you need to convert recipes using egg substitute, 1/4 cup egg substitute equals one egg (two egg whites). Here in the states its much cheaper to buy eggs and throw away the yolks than it is to buy egg substitute. If you'd like more specific info on egg substitutes let me know and I'll look at a carton the next time I'm at the grocery. Hope this helps.

Here's a helpful hint: If you don't have a lot of time (especially if you're single), keep a bag of flash-frozen chicken breasts in your freezer. You can defrost them quickly in the microwave or in the fridge overnight, season them however you like and cook them in the microwave, poach them or bake them. I recommend using low-fat or fat-free salad dressings as marinades, or just rubbing your favorite spices on them. It's fast, tasty and low-fat! Thanks! Kathy St. Louis, Missouri

From Shannon
At the Zhers supermarket you can buy fat free tofu, which melts the same as regular cheese. It has the same texture and comes in a vacuum packed seal, same as cheese. It also comes in different flavours, like cheddar, monteray, Italian, etc. Hope this helps you out!

From Mark in Houston, Tx
Try them you'll like 'em.
I have been using non-fat substitues for a while now. They have really improved them alot. Especially the cheese products Kraft Free cheese is great.
Don't forget, by substituting non-fat ingredients into your favorite reciepes you eat low fat and the taste isn't that different.
PS Dont forget that spices can make a big difference

From Flora
I buy soy cheese in the produce of the food market. It's not bad and is
called Veggie slices. Sometimes I make cheese from non-fat yorgurt by
straining it through coffee filters.
Another possibility is, if you can get fat free cottage cheese, you can
use that by filtering it
for a short time and then creaming it. I could help you more if I knew
how you were going to use the cheese.

Better yet, move to the U.S. Just kidding! Healthy Foods makes non-fat
cheese and so
does Kraft. Ask the grocery store manager to order it for you.

If I can help any other way, let me know.

From Kerri
Eat alot of will help you feel better!!
Try a high fiber cereal in the moring and a few fiberful vegetables during the day-
great for your system!!

From Michele
I have lost alot of weight by simply counting my calories and fat content everyday by keeping a food diary. That way you can keep track of what you've eaten, and are able to make wiser decisions on what you should eat for that day. If you're trying to lose weight at a healthy pace, you must decrease your calories by 500 from what you normally eat, and over time you'll watch the fat dissapear!

From Krysta and Jeff!!
Check these great ideas out!
My husband and I made a switch to lower fat over a year ago. By making very small changes in our diet, we have lost a combined 70 lbs, with no changes is excercise!!
This is what we did:
Switched from 2% to skim milk. This took a little time to get used to, but now 2% milk tastes like cream to us!!

Switched to a lower fat style margarine, and used it only on those things
that 'needed' that butter taste.

We do not use any oil or fat to 'fry' anything. Even eggs come out great using a non-stick skillet.

We rarely eat red meat, and when we do it is extra lean ground beef, browned with no fat, then rinsed off. There is no loss of flavour if you season after you rinse it.

We have also used home made ground chicken and turkey in its place (by making our own, we control the fat content).
Switched to boneless and skinless chicken and turkey breast.

Use low fat mayonaisse and sour cream instead of regular.

I use a lower fat cream powder in my coffee, and use less of it.

These little changes made a big difference!! And we still cook the same
recipes we always did, keeping an eye out for 'useless' fat that doesn't
contribute much to the recipe itself.
I hope that others can use these suggestions as well.

Don't forget Momma Bears words of wisdom - Power is what you do, character is what you are......

Joe in Alaska tells us to make sure we use the stairs in the office instead of the elevator - DON'T be LAZY!!

From Mary in New York - Use lemon juice to marinate your pork. No calories added, and great taste!

Lisa in Portland says  Try a wine spitzer with supper instead of wine. (wine and club soda) Tastes great on a hot day, and far fewer calories.

W.M. in Phoenix - Keep celery sticks and carrots in an air tight containor in your fridge, clean and cut, this way when you want a quick snack you have no excuse!

Alice from Hamilton wants to remind us all to drink our 8 glasses of water everyday!! This will keep your skin healthy and shiney!!

A.R in Edmonton says remember to take the skin off of your chicken - saves up to 50% of the fat!!

Henricka from Montreal, Quebec says that we should ALL spend more time CLEANING! She wants to remind us that if we stay at home, cleaning keeps us up and moving! VERY IMPORTANT (especially if you have no kids!!)
