2. YOUR VEGETABLE SIDE Eat This! Succotash (1 cup) 160 calories 1 g fat (0 g saturated) 562 mg sodium
Not That! Creamed Corn (1 cup) 400 calories 22 g fat (N/A g saturated) 580 mg sodium
YOU SAVE: 240 calories!
A good rule when it comes
to vegetables? Disqualify any dish that begins with "creamed." In
this case, starch-heavy corn converges with calorie-dense dairy fat to create a
side dish with more than a third of your day's recommended fat limit.
Succotash, on the other hand, offsets corn's excessive starch load with the
slow-digesting fiber and protein of beans, helping you fill up quicker and take
in fewer calories overall.
