Adapting Recipes To A Low Fat Lifestyle

by Ronda Gates - author of Smart Eating

The media reports Americans are weary and wary of recommendations to eat in a more healthy way. I believe most hear, "eliminate the fat and sugar in the diet" when, in fact,  the recommendation is to reduce it.

Small changes in your cooking habits can make a significant difference in your total fat, sugar and fiber intake. For example, you can cut the oil in most recipes to 1/2 the original amount without changing the taste. Using mustard on a sandwich instead of mayonnaise will save you about 88 calories of fat per tablespoon.

Substituting 1 cup of non fat yogurt for sour cream in a salad dressing base saves 700 fat calories! To find your own successes combine a dash of imagination and creativity with ingredients.  See the list below.
