.mp3, Audio Package
ANCHOR LEAD: While classic desserts never go out of style, some of your favorite sweets were first prepared when health and weight loss weren't as much of a concern. Brian Osuch has more on how you can satisfy that sweet tooth without excess calories. (:60) SCRIPT: Lifestyles, I'm Brian Osuch. Today with healthy eating a high priority, many people are deserting their desserts. But Ellie Krieger, registered dietitian, chef and host of the Cooking Channel's "Healthy Appetite," says just a few ingredient substitutions can make your favorite dessert healthier without sacrificing taste. CUT: (Krieger) One substitute that I always go to is I use canola oil instead of butter in many recipes. And just by doing that, you can reduce the saturated fat dramatically – to a minimum because canola oil has the lowest saturated fat of any of the cooking oils. SCRIPT: Krieger says she has updated several of her favorite time-tested desserts to be less than 400 calories per serving to make them a little easier on the waistline. CUT: (Krieger) I've created this collection of recipes called "Decades of Decadence." And in it is everything from Lemon Chess Pie, Strawberry Shortcake, Black and White Cookies, there's Pineapple Upside Down Cake, Chocolate War Cake, and taking us up to the 1950s with a Frozen Grasshopper Pie.
