I have found that McCormick has mixes and seasonings that helps me make the best classic foods without the fat. I just recently used their beef stroganoff mix with lean beef on whole wheat noodles and it was delicious. Took me back to those flavors that I use to have with the thick cream and lots of butter. I used a low fat sour cream and it was fantastic. They also have seasonings you can mix with vegetables to give it a better taste. Much healthier than adding butter to give it some flavor. Things like this has helped me keep going on my diet. I have allowed myself a treat now and then but have kept under 1600 calories a day. Ahhh to eat healthy and have flavor!!!!
