Cheese fondue

Who doesn't love to dip bite-size snacks into a warm, simmering pot of cheese? We don't, when it contains an unnecessarily high amount of saturated fat, sodium, and calories, depending on the kinds of cheese in the pot.

The good news is that you can lighten this calcium-rich dip by using low-fat options such as goat cheese, or adding a white-bean purée for body and texture.
