My friend asked me the other day for some tips on cooking more healthy so I came up with a short list and some resources for that.
Baking alternative tips:
Oil/ Butter: Apple sauce
White Flour: Whole wheat flour
Sugar: Honey/Maple Syrup
-In baking you can substitute eggs with flaxmeal by using 1T flax with 2 T water- let sit for a min before adding to rest of ingredients
-Make sure to buy whole flaxseed and grind them yourself. Make sure to refrigerate or freeze flax seed and flaxmeal
Cooking/ Stove top Alternatives:
Oil/ Butter : Use chicken/veggie broth/ herbs/ lemon when cooking veggies.
White pasta: whole wheat pasta or whole grain pasta
Buying beans in bulk and cook them that way- saves money and it is more healthful
Sweetener Alternatives: sweeteners list
