Cut the Fat
Try and use minimum fats in the comfort foods. It is a good idea to use low fat cheese in your lasagna rather than cheddar cheese. This will significantly reduce the number of calories you will be consuming while you eat this delightful food.
Use Whole Grain Lasagna
Researches now show that using refined products is bad for your health but in the short and the longer term. Instead of purchasing the fine lasagna, take the pain and go for whole grain lasagna. You may have to cook it a little differently and it may not taste completely the same but the change is worthwhile and one that offers a lot more healthy benefits.
Reduce Portion Size
You need to reduce your portion size as well. Make sure that you use smaller plates the next time you are eating lasagna and leave your fork down when you are chewing. Chew well and only prepare another bite when the previous one has been properly eaten. You will eat less this way as well.
Use Dark Chocolate
Instead of using milk chocolate which is rich in calories, opt for dark chocolate when you are making your next chocolate cake or when you are purchasing it. It works like a charm and you will get a more chocolate flavour this way as well.
Substitute Whole Eggs
Instead of opting for whole eggs when you are baking the cake, go for egg whites instead. Eggs are good source of protein but when you are making cakes, there are many that will need to be used. It is best that you replace one whole egg with two egg whites. There will be no great difference in the taste and you will also be eating cake with fewer calories.
