3. Mashed potatoes
Nutritious and vitamin C-rich potatoes are typically mixed with tons of butter, cream, and milk, so you end up with a 400-calorie side dish. Top it with gravy and you could be adding around 200 more calories.
To lighten up:
• Try mashed cauliflower or a combo of potatoes and root vegetables (like turnips or parsnips) instead.
• Aim for 1-2tsp of unsalted butter per serving.
• Instead of heavy cream, use a combo of milk and Greek yogurt.
