This week in my “Healthy Plate” column, I let you in on a sweet trick I have up my sleeve: orange zest.  Often overlooked or thrown away, using orange zest is a healthy way to trick ourselves into thinking what we’re eating is sweeter than it actually is!  I highlight some of my favorite ways to use it – both sweet and savory – and how to easily build a stock whether in the freezer or dried in the spice cabinet. Read more about this versatile ingredient and get my recipe for Orange Zest Pudding with Shaved Dark Chocolate. At just 220 calories per serving, this family-favorite pudding can be whipped up in 20 minutes and boasts decadence without being overly sweet.
