Posted by Aaron Thein on Mar 4, 2016 12:04:30 PM

Trading high-calorie or high fat-ingredients for lower-calorie or lower-fat ingredients is a great way to make your favorite recipes healthier, without sacrificing flavor.

This month's FitFuture Parent Newsletter provides a list of quick and easy ingredient substitutions parents can make to just about any recipe for a guilt-free family meal.

Here's just a few ingredient substitutions to try:

  • Cream
    Fat-free half-and-half, evaporated skim milk.

  • Eggs
    Two egg whites or 1/4 cup egg substitute for each whole egg.

  • Butter, margarine, shortening or oil in baked goods
    Applesauce for half of the called-for butter, shortening or oil. Note: To avoid dense, soggy or flat baked goods, don't substitute oil for butter or shortening.
