There are certain foods you love but know they won’t help you stay trim. The Doctors have got three great hacks for lightening up ranch dressing, alfredo sauce and tacos. Yum!
Coconut Milk Ranch Dressing
Typical ranch dressing is loaded with fat and calories. The Doctors share a recipe for a ranch made with coconut milk that has half the fat and calories. A typical ranch has 140 calories and 14g fat while this version has 70 calories and 7g of fat. Not to mention, it lacks any of those mystery ingredients and the tons of sodium many of the regular versions have.
Cottage Cheese Alfredo Sauce
Cottage cheese is a diet-friendly food because the high protein and lower fat cheese help you stay full. It is also a great source of phosphorus and magnesium. The Doctors test out this alfredo sauce and are giving high-fives all around, they like it! It is 112 calories for half a cup versus a typical Alfredo which has 140 calories and also, this version is a lot less fattening. This sauce has 4g fat versus 12g in a typical Alfredo. It’s also lower in sodium and cholesterol but The Doctors don’t think it sacrifices any taste.
Jicama is a root vegetable which can serve as a terrific taco shell. Slice jicama thinly and you’ve got yourself a taco shell with only 2 calories which is way less than the 140 calories in a typical corn tortilla. It’s basically fiber and water! ER physician Dr. Travis Stork admits to not being a massive jicama fan and finds it can be overpowering in salads, but these thin shells? “I love this!” The other Doctors agree. “It’s similar to wrapping your taco in lettuce but better," says plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon.
