If you are going to a gathering with a dish it would be wise to bring something healthy so that you know there will be at least one option that you can eat guilt free.
Here are some tips to transform your old recipes:
If your recipe calls for:
All-purpose (plain) flour: Try using half all-purpose and half whole wheat flour in baked goods
Butter, shortening or oil: Replace with applesauce or prune puree for half of the called-for butter, shortening or oil
Butter, margarine, shortening or oil to prevent sticking: Try cooking spray or nonstick pans
Eggs: Use two egg whites or 1/4 cup egg substitute for each whole egg
Evaporated milk: Use evaporated skim milk
Fruit canned in heavy syrup: Try fruit canned in its own juices or in water, or fresh fruit
Full-fat cream cheese: Use fat-free or low-fat cream cheese, Neufchatel or low-fat cottage cheese pureed until smooth
Full-fat sour cream: Try fat-free or low-fat sour cream, plain fat-free or low-fat yogurt
Margarine in baked goods: Use trans fat-free butter spreads or shortenings that are specially formulated for baking. To avoid dense, soggy or flat baked goods, don't substitute diet, whipped or tub-style margarine.
