You are far too smart to be the only thing standing in your way.

One of my favorite indulgent treats is Brie with Pepper Jelly on top. I do not even want to try and calculate the calorie load of that warm, melted goodness. Instead I decided to come up with a lightened version.
Low-Calorie Pepper Jelly Spread
2 Wasa Light Rye Crispbread Pieces
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss Cheese
1 Tablespoon Tabasco Peppery Jelly
1. Divide cheese in half and spread over crackers.
2. Top with pepper jelly.
This spread has all the same flavors of the original, but only a fraction of the calories. Both crackers together only have 130 calories.
I like to get a lot of bang for my buck, or in this case, a lot of food for my calories. This satisfies all my cravings when I need a sweet treat.
This treat hits all the right notes with savory, sweet, and spice. Yummy!
All three of these ingredients are really staples when trying to slash the calories.
I mean 35 calories for a whole wedge of cheese!
The Laughing Cow has also came out with a cream cheese wedge, which might be even better in this case.
