Eating Healthier…………

In many cases, your favorite recipes can be modified so they offer a lower fat and calorie content. Choose the reduced or low-fat version of a food if possible – for example milk, cheese, yoghurt, salad dressings and gravies. Also choose lean meat cuts and skinless chicken breasts. Cut’em when you can!

Lowering the fat………

In many cases, favorite recipes can be modified so they offer a lower fat and calorie content. When possible choose to steam, bake, grill, braise, boil or microwave your foods, rather than deep fry them.

Eat Healthier………

* Eat fish regularly. Try different ways of cooking such as baking, broiling, grilling and poaching to add variety.
* Include plant foods as sources of protein, including soybeans, pinto beans, lentils and nuts.
* Substitute two egg whites for each whole egg in recipes. (The cholesterol and fat are in the yolk not in the white.)
* Replace higher-fat cheeses with lower-fat options such as reduced-fat feta and part-skim mozzarella.
* Thicken sauces with evaporated fat-free milk instead of whole milk.
* Trim all fat from meat before cooking. Remove the skin from chicken or turkey
* Try using lower-fat milk and yogurt. Start with 2% products, then move to 1% and finally to fat-fre to adjust to the new taste.
* Spoon off fat from meat dishes once they have been chilled in the refrigerator and the fat has hardened on the top.

From the Diabetic Living Online recipe its Healthy Recipe Substitutions. Check out the Diabetic Living site and their incredible selection of Diabetic Friendly recipes. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2017!  http://www.diabeticlivingonline.com/

 
Healthy Recipe SubstitutionsDiabetic living logo

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

When your recipe calls for: 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. For sweet dips and sauces, you can use a flavored fat-free yogurt, such as vanilla or strawberry. Yogurt will also yield similar results when substituted for sour cream in baked goods…..

 
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
Use this instead: Equal parts low-fat yogurt and no-salt-added low-fat cottage cheese
Best for: Dips and salad dressings

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……
