Greek-yogurt-based dips vs. hummus
Using Greek yogurt in lieu of mayonnaise and cream cheese may lighten the calorie load, but these dips often contain cheese, which means saturated fats and cholesterol in every scoop. "Hummus is lower in calories and higher in polyunsaturated fats, which can help fight inflammation and heart disease," says Limor Baum, a nutrition therapist and registered dietitian.
Cheese balls vs. baked brie
"Serving size is the key here," says Baum, since both baked brie and cheese balls are made with high-fat cheeses that contain loads of artery-clogging saturated fats. So she suggests giving yourself a one-ounce limit, which is approximately the size of four dice and should only cost you about 100 calories and 10 grams of fat.
