Mustard is very low in calories, but high in sharp flavor. Try it in egg salad. Add a small amount to your coleslaw. Pour a little over potato slices before you roast them.


Chicken Broth Adds Delicious Savor

Chicken broth has a mere 10 calories per cup! I use this to cook my green beans with, and skip the bacon grease. I also use this to cook potatoes in, whether I plan to mash them or simply boil them. Flavor without so much butter and milk!


Sweet Pickle Relish

Cucumbers squash the build up of stomach fat! You can add relish to onions and green peppers, sauté them, and serve it with grilled meat. I add a little relish to my baked beans, deviled eggs, and even tuna fish.

Coffee has caffeine, and caffeine curbs your appetite for about 3 hours. Plus, coffee, minus cream and sugar, is virtually calorie free. Add a cup to chocolate cake mix, in place of a cup of plain water. You can add it to barbeque sauce, too.


Tomato Paste Adds a Hardy Flavor

You can use this vegetable paste to reduce the stress hormone that stores fat! Add it to caramelized onions, vegetable soup, and spaghetti sauce. Put a spoonful in meatloaf for a tasty zing.


Lemon Peeling Zest

The acids in lemons cause your body to burn carbohydrates! I like to put a little zest in my cheesecakes, puddings, and homemade rice pudding. If you use vinaigrette, add a little zest to it for a tangy zip.

Spread on chicken while you grill. Adds yummy flavor for very few calories!
