Healthier recipes? Delete 1 ingredient

You don't have to use every ingredient that's in a recipe. Sometimes, leaving out an ingredient can decrease the calories, fat or sodium without diminishing the flavor. Likely candidates include decorations on baked goods, such as frosting, coconut and nuts. Other possibilities include condiments, such as pickles, olives, butter, mayonnaise, syrup, jelly and mustard.
