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:
Fat-free half-and-half, evaporated skim milk.
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.
