What happens when you take two normally indulgent dishes — General Tso’s Chicken and Cheesecake — and stir in some calorie-cutting magic and a dash of creativity? You get these scrumptious, slimmed-down versions. Enjoy without a pinch of guilt!

Cheesecake-Stuffed Strawberries: A single slice of cheesecake will set you back a whopping 700 calories. Ouch! My version gives you all of the flavor for just 23 calories a bite-sized serving. That means you could have five deliciously stuffed berries for a mere 115 calories. Bet you can’t eat just one—and they’re so low-cal, you don’t have to!

General Joy’s Chicken: Some restaurant versions of this beloved Chinese dish contain as much as 1,000 calories (and nearly a day’s worth of sodium). Whip up this recipe instead—it’s only 240 calories per hearty serving and a fraction of the sodium. Pass the chopsticks, please.
