Apple turnover

The flaky, buttery pastry you love results from heaps of butter laden with saturated fat. Even worse: Pre-packaged turnovers often harbor trans fat.

Swap: Shine the spotlight on in-season fruit instead of smothering apples with added fat, sugar, and a pastry crust. Sprinkle raisins and cinnamon on top of a cored apple before baking. Top the cooked fruit with low-fat Greek yogurt and enjoy for breakfast or a post-dinner treat. If you’re craving a more decadent dessert, make an apple crisp, says Salge Blake. Use oatmeal and whole-wheat flour for a fiber-filled, low-sugar crumble that will satisfy a sweet tooth.

The baked apples would be much healthier with full fat yogurt on top.

I'd rather have an apple crisp over an apple turnover, anyway.
