Top 5 Weight Loss Baking Habits
If you're hungry, don't bake.
"You'll want to fill your rumbling stomach with high-calorie foods that make it too easy to eat a day's worth of calories before your baked goods are even done
Use prune puree instead of butter and oils.
"You can replace unhealthy fats, improve the texture, and add moisture and richness to baked goods, appetizers, main dishes, and even desserts."
Limit yourself to three small tastes while you bake.
"Just make sure that your 3 tastes aren't too big, because depending on the food, they can still cost you over 150-200 calories."
Pureed beans can be used in place of cream in recipes.
"You'd save about 1,400 calories per cup, which means that for every cup of butter you replace with white beans, you save almost a whole day's worth of calories."
After baking, cover your tasty dish right away and put it somewhere out of sight.
"The smell of baked goods can be enough to make you want to eat them, but if they
're right there in front of you, it's even harder to say no," say The Nutrition Twins.
