Satisfy a Sweet Tooth with Good-for-You Goodies

Think sweets are off-limits? No way. When your sweet tooth hits, reach for one of these lower-calorie alternatives to brownies, cookies, and cake.

Dessert doesn't have to be off-limits. A recent study shows that you absorb as much calcium from a serving of fortified ice cream as you do from a glass of milk. "You can satisfy cravings and get some nutrition at the same time," says FITNESS advisory board member Lisa Young, PhD, RD, author of The Portion Teller. Here, a few more tasty picks.

You're Craving: Chocolate Chip Cookies

Dig Into: Kashi TLC Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Cookies. Loaded with filling whole grains, fiber, and heart-healthy dark chocolate, these delectable cookies have just 5 grams of fat each.

You're Craving: Brownies

Dig Into: Glenny's All Natural 100 Calorie Brownies. They're gooey, rich, low in fat (with zero trans fat), high in fiber, and individually packaged for easy portion control.

You're Craving: Cake

Dig Into: Amy's Organic Orange Cakes. All natural with no trans or saturated fat and only 180 calories per thick slice, this pound cake won't pack on pounds.
