Slimming Swaps

Skip coleslaw. A single cup of veggie slaw drenched in mayo and sugar can quickly turn into a 290-calorie bomb. Instead, choose corn on the cob, which contains just 130 calories, even with a small pat of butter.

Skip pork ribs. A half rack will cost you nearly 550 calories. Not to mention, more often than not, they’re slathered in BBQ sauce, which is high in both sodium and sugar. Instead, choose a 4-ounce cooked burger and lose the top bun, which goes for 360 calories. Make sure you pile on the lettuce, tomato and onions.Or, try this tasty 3-ingredient turkey burger recipe.
