  • 1 Informational


EVAPORATED SKIM MILK - Substitute an equal amount of evaporated skim milk for whipping cream in rich soups, chowders, cream-based sauces and even pumpkin pie filling. --Chef Jackie Abreau, The Spa at Doral, Miami
CHICKEN BROTH - Avoid having to add butter to white rice by cooking it with low-sodium chicken broth instead of water. You can also baste chicken breasts with broth to prevent them from drying out while cooking. -- Chef Michel Stroot, the Golden Door Spa, Escondido, CA. See the Golden Door Cookbook at bookstores (1997+)
FRUITY EXTRA-VIRGIN OLIVE OIL - Its intense flavor makes a little go a long way. Fill up a spray bottle (available at beauty supply stores) and spritz the oil on saute pans, salad greens, grilled tortillas, oven-baked french fries and pasta. --Chef Cary Neff, Miraval, Life in Balance, Catalina, AZ
YOGURT CREAM - Make this lowfat stand-in for whipped cream by beating together 1/4 cup fat-free cream cheese, half a cup of nonfat vanilla yogurt and a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup. -- Chef John Luzager, Canyon Ranch Health Resort, Tucson, AZ
APPLESAUCE - When baking breads and cakes, substitute two tablespoons of unsweetened applesauce for each tablespoon of oil needed. -- Chef Janice Coon, Green Valley Spa and Tennis Resort, St. George, UT
