I’ve been reading all kinds of books on health lately. I’m trying to gear myself back up to get off of refined sugars. I was off of refined sugars for nearly two years and then last fall–POW–I fell off the bandwagon and I’m telling you what, trying to get back on that bandwagon is a killer! I mean k-i-l-l-e-r…as in I’m going to slump to the floor, seizure, and foam at the mouth kind of killer.
So today, I bring to you a stereotypical trying-to-be-healthy day where I share with you some of my “past” secrets with this healthy baking substitutes chart.
If you’re looking to improve your diet with low-fat cooking and baking and decreasing cholesterol and calories, you can find many healthy substitutes or should I say healthier substitutes on this chart. For example, what are substitutes for butter? What are egg replacers? Etc.
There’s always what I call the “good, better, best” rule when it comes to substitutions or eating. Some substitutions might be healthy, but there’s always a healthier alternative out there. There are foods, healthy foods, healthier foods, and down-right out of this world granola-tree hugger healthy. It’s all about taking baby steps, learning what tastes right, what bakes up right, and what feels right for you and your body.
This, by any means, is not a complete list, but it’s a start.
