EVAPORATED SKIM MILK – Substitute an equal amount of evaporated skim milk
for whipping cream in rich soups, chowders, cream-based sauces and even
pumpkin pie filling. –Chef Jackie Abreau, The Spa at Doral, Miami

CHICKEN BROTH – Avoid having to add butter to white rice by cooking it with
low-sodium chicken broth instead of water. You can also baste chicken
breasts with broth to prevent them from drying out while cooking. — Chef
Michel Stroot, the Golden Door Spa, Escondido, CA. See the Golden Door
Cookbook at bookstores (1997+)

FRUITY EXTRA-VIRGIN OLIVE OIL – Its intense flavor makes a little go a long
way. Fill up a spray bottle (available at beauty supply stores) and spritz
the oil on saute pans, salad greens, grilled tortillas, oven-baked french
fries and pasta. –Chef Cary Neff, Miraval, Life in Balance, Catalina, AZ

YOGURT CREAM – Make this lowfat stand-in for whipped cream by beating
together 1/4 cup fat-free cream cheese, half a cup of nonfat vanilla yogurt
and a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup. — Chef John Luzager, Canyon Ranch
Health Resort, Tucson, AZ

APPLESAUCE – When baking breads and cakes, substitute two tablespoons of
unsweetened applesauce for each tablespoon of oil needed. — Chef Janice
Coon, Green Valley Spa and Tennis Resort, St. George, UT
