Want to eat healthier but don’t want to get rid of those delectable recipes you like to use? It may seem difficult to eat healthy when recipes you like call for more fatty, unhealthy ingredients. It is a lot easier to cook and eat more healthy than you would think.
Many ingredients can be substituted for more healthy choices. For example, butter can be substituted for applesauce in a brownie recipe. The applesauce will keep the brownie soft and moist, like the butter, while still giving it good flavor. If the applesauce is sweetened, you could even put in less sugar.
Although some ingredients cannot be substituted straight across, you can still substitute part, to make the recipe more healthy. But how do you know what can be substituted for those unhealthy ingredients? I have put together a list 20 unique healthy food alternatives to those unhealthy ingredients. Because of the difficulty of knowing the proportions to use when substituting, I included the ratio of healthy ingredients that can be substituted for unhealthy ingredients.
I hope this gets you started in making your recipes into healthy meals that are still full of the flavors you love! We like you hear from you, let us know if you find any more alternatives to unhealthy ingredients!
