I reached into my bag of tricks to health-ify some of Hoda’s most beloved — and most calorie-packed — treats, including French fries, doughnuts and brownies. You will absolutely love the results: diet-friendly dishes that you can enjoy seconds of… and feel good about!

My oven-baked fries are every bit as good as the deep-fried kind. Rich in beta-carotene, bright orange sweet potatoes help keep your eyes, skin and hair healthy, and also boost your immune system. And did I mention the calorie savings? This version has just 100 calories per serving, compared to a large fast-food version with a whopping 500 calories. This recipe is all about the seasonings, so grab the items from your spice rack and get cooking.
Have a hankering for chocolate? Why drop 400 calories (and more than a few bucks) on a coffee shop brownie when you can whip up your own for less than 100 calories? These bite-size beauties are a delicious way to satisfy a craving. It’s a good day to be a choco-holic!
Hoda has a sweet tooth, and one of her soft spots is doughnuts (along with the rest of us!). So I set out to create a healthier version for her to enjoy. Boy, did I hit the jackpot! My version is light and fluffy and easier than easy to make. Even my kids fell in love at first bite.
