BONUS TIP

Most reduced or no-fat dairy products, like cheese, are not acceptable substitutes for the higher fat content counterpart because they taste so bad. In those instances, it is best to reduce PORTION SIZES. However, non-fat yogurt is an exception. Taste and consistency are fine. Try it yourself, not bad.
