How to Remake your Old Favourite Holiday Recipes - November 2018

By Shannon Bliss

Simple tips on how to remake your old favourite recipes…just in time for Thanksgivin

 

This is simpler than you would think…

When I look at any recipe I look for good healthy ingredients.

 

If a recipe calls for margarine I substitute it for butter and if it calls for vegetable oil, I switch that to olive or coconut oil. Depending on what flavour I’m trying to achieve.

 

So here is a quick list of substitutes:

 

Margarine – butter

Vegetable oil – olive or coconut oil

Lard or shortening - butter

White flour – whole wheat, spelt, quinoa…there are many to choose from now, just check the consistency of them…sometimes a blend is best.

Quick oats – large slow oats or quinoa flakes

Sugar – raw cane sugar (this can safely be cut in half)

Sweeteners (Yuk – chemicals) – better to use sugar…don’t let the ads fool you!

Corn syrup (so bad!) – Agave nectar, maple syrup, applesauce

Table salt – sea salt

Milk (some people have a hard time with lactose) – try almond milk

 

Check to make sure your baking powder and soda does not have an aluminum base – you want to be able to remember how to bake later in life!

 

Ground beef – ground turkey (I just made a shepherd’s pie with turkey – delicious!)

 

Remember it always tastes better from scratch…and your family will be healthier!

If you have a recipe that you want reworked, send it to Shannon  and I’ll see what I can do.

 

Happy cooking!

Wellness Tip
Potato Power
The potatoe's reputation as a high-carb, white starch has removed it from the meals of many who are trying to lose weight. Did you know that potatoes are actually very healthful and can fit into even the most calorie-conscious eating plan? They are not only fat and cholesterol free but are also rich in antioxidants, dietary fiber, vitamin C and potassium. The key is to choose toppings carefully. Top with low-fat, low-calorie options such as salsa, chopped veggies, herbs, beans, nonfat sour cream or low-fat shredded cheese.
