Easter is comin’: Portion-siZe, does matter !

By Anthony J Sepe


!cid__04-09-09_1346 With Easter coming, and, just around the corner, here’s some of my handy-dandies to keep in mind: Each serving has approximately 4-5 gms of total fat:

  • 1 tsp. stick margarine or butter
  • 1 tsp. regular mayo
  • 2 tsp. of salad dressing
  • 3 tsp. (which = 1 Tbsp) of light margarine
  • 3 tsp. of reduced-fat mayo
  • 3 tsp. of cream cheese
  • 4 tsp of a light cream
  • 4 tsp. of sour cream

The big thing here: notice the amount of each item, despite the fact that each is still typically 4-5 grms of total fat.  Everything in moderation, and, portion-size does matter, but we can still have fun and still enjoy our food.//
