Have a Plant: Fruits & Veggies for Better Health

Is there a good, low-calorie option to use in place of butter on vegetables?

Answer

Vegetables are great on their own, but if a sauce helps you eat your veggies then aiming for one that is low-calorie and low in sodium is important. Fat-free salad dressings can be a good choice, lemon juice and garlic, balsamic vinegar or other vinegars also go well with vegetables. If you want butter flavor, try sprinkling your vegetables with Butter Buds® or decreasing the amount of butter you are currently using. Another idea is to try salt-free seasonings. These might offer enough flavor that you won’t need a sauce. Check out our recipes to find some new and delicious ways to eat your veggies.
