Calorie-saving tips:

1. Replace oil for chicken or beef broth in recipes.

2. Mist olive oil or use spray butter instead of dousing vegetables in butter or oil.

3. Boneless skinless chicken breasts, salmon, tilapia, ground turkey, and low-fat ground beef are leaner protein options!

4. Sub frozen cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles for rice and noodles

5. Half the amount of cheese called for in the recipe

6. Homemade salad dressings contain less sugar and fewer calories than store-bought
