Today's weekly tip comes from a program available on our cable system's on-demand menu last week. I thought these were some great healthy cooking substitutes that anyone can use to lower calories and fat in their cooking. Some of them are cheaper, too!
Heavy Cream~ Substitute an equal amount of Evaporated Skim Milk. in a 1 Cup portion, you'll save 620 calories and 88 grams of fat!
1 Egg~ Substitute 2 Egg Whites and you'll save 45 calories and 5 grams of fat!
Oil~ Substitute equal amounts of Unsweetened Applesauce (great for cake mixes!). For a 2 Tablespoon portion, you'll save 225 calories and 28 grams of fat!!!
Mayo~ Substitute an equal amount of Nonfat Yogurt. In a 4 Tablespoon portion, you'll save 373 calories and 38 grams of fat!
Sour Cream~ Substitute equal amounts of Plain Low Fat Yogurt and for every cup, you'll save 350 calories and 44 grams of fat!
