Make your favorite recipes healthier with a few simple substitutions, and you’ll save on calories, carbs, fat, and sodium. We’ll show you how to enjoy classic recipes on a diabetic diet.

 

 

Use Fat-Free Plain Yogurt, Not Sour Cream

Use this instead: Fat-free plain yogurt
Best for: Sauces and some baked goods

Sour cream is cream treated with lactic acid to give it the trademark tangy flavor. Yogurt has a slightly different tang, but it’s a good substitute in most savory sauces and dips.

Use Crushed Cereal, Not Bread Crumbs

When your recipe calls for: Fine dry bread crumbs
Use this instead: Crushed fiber cereal
Best for: Coatings and toppings

Fine dry bread crumbs are commonly used as coatings for fried or baked fish or chicken or toppings for vegetable and starch casseroles. Substituting cereal will give you a darker, crunchier coating with fewer calories and less sodium……

 
Use Yogurt and Cottage Cheese, Not Sour Cream

When your recipe calls for: Sour cream

Dips and salad dressings made with sour cream are smooth, creamy, and have a tangy zip, but they also can be loaded with fat, calories, and sodium. Get the same smooth tanginess by replacing sour cream with a combination of fat-free yogurt and no-salt-added reduced-fat cottage cheese……
