Satisfy a Sweet Tooth with Good-for-You Goodies


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.
