Sure, it’s nice to treat yourself to a restaurant meal every now and again. But you can easily make similar — and slimmer — versions at home for a fraction of the calories and cost!
The next time you're craving one of these restaurant staples, try one of these lightened-up options in your very own kitchen.
Between the cheese, the oil, the creamy sauces, the white bread and pasta, traditional Italian food will often cost you a boatload of calories. But with a few easy tweaks, you can turn your favorite Italian dishes into diet-friendly fare. Bon appetit!
Your fortune says: You will likely consume way too many calories with Chinese takeout. Instead, whip up these healthier versions yourself.
