Also if you like hotdogs. Your basic variety whether it's Jennie 0 or Ball Park or whatever can be heavy in calories and fat.

But I found Healthy Choice has their own hotdog version and they are made out of turkey & pork. They taste the same as regular hotdogs but they are lower in caloire and lower in fat. :)

I get boca burgers BBLZ. I don't remember the maker of the burgers I buy. But the burgers I get are like soy protein vegan burgers and they are 100 calories each with only 3grams of Fat.

Compared to a regular burger with 240 calories and like 5+ grams of Fat.

A lean Turkey Burger is like 160 calories and maybe 3+ grams of fat.

Sheep: I'll have to try that burger. I love burgers, that is one of my problems.

Substitutions
Uh-Oh! Recipe looks interesting but you're missing an ingredient? Maybe this list can help.

Baking powder: 1 tsp baking soda plus 1/2 tsp cream of tartar for each teaspoon of baking powder.

Beer: Use apple cider or beef broth

Bread crumbs: Use an equal amount of crushed crackers or oats

Butter: You can substitute an equal amount of regular margarine, but not light versions, whipped versions, or vegetable oil spread. You can substitute shortening, although the taste won't quite be the same. If the recipe calls for melted butter, you can also use vegetable oil.

Buttermilk or sour milk: For each cup, add 1 Tbs lemon juice or white vinegar to milk and let stand a few minutes. Or use yogurt.

Cake flour: 1 cup regular flour minus 2 Tbs will work out about the same as 1 cup of cake flour

Corn syrup: For each cup add 1/4 water to 1 cup granulated sugar.

Eggs: 1 Tbs. soy flour plus 1 Tbs. water for each egg. For baking, you can try substituting 2 Tbs mayonnaise for each egg.

Honey: 1 1/4 cups sugar plus 1/4 cup water or apple juice

Lemon juice: use an equivalent amount of white vinegar

Lemon zest: 1/2 tsp lemon extract for every teaspoon of zest

Mayonnaise: Use an equal amount of yogurt, sour cream, or cottage cheese blended until smooth. If you have some mayonnaise but not enough, use up what you've got and then use the substitution for the rest.

Poultry seasoning: 1/4 tsp thyme and 3/4 teaspoon sage for each teaspoon

Pumpkin or apple pie spice: For each teaspoon, use 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground ginger, 1/8 tsp allspice and 1/8 tsp nutmeg

Self-rising flour: Add 1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt to each cup of regular flour.

Shortening: If you're baking and a recipe calls for shortening, you can usually substitute an equal amount of butter or margarine successfully. Don't try to use the whipped, light margarines, or vegetable oil spreads. If the recipe calls for melted shortening, you can use melted butter or margarine or a vegetable oil.

Sour cream: Use plain yogurt instead.

Tomato juice: For each cup, use 1/2 cup tomato sauce and 1/2 cup water.

Tomato paste: For each 1/2 cup, use 1 cup tomato sauce cooked uncovered until reduced to 1/2 cup.

Tomato sauce: For each cup, use 3/4 cup tomato paste plus 1 cup water.

Wine: For red wine, substitute beef broth, tomato juice, or water. For white wine substitute grape juice, apple juice, chicken broth or water.

Yogurt: Use sour cream instead.

They are good aren't they? Yumm! I have some in my freezer.

Also, if your craving a burger you can either go lean Turkey Burger but what's better is a Soy Protein Vegan Burger :) With Kraft American Fat Free Singles on it and a tiny bit o' ketchup. It's a fine tasting burger.

Oh Im sure everyone likes Ice Cream. They have this brand of icecream called Skinny Cow. Taste almost the same as regular ice cream sandwiches and it's slightly more better for you.

1 1/2 Buttermilk = 4 1/2 tsp vinegar (OR lemon juice) plus enough whole, 2%, or 1% milk added to it to equal 1 1/2 cups

When I was trying to bake banana bread yesterday (trying to use the food that I have and not waste any) I found that right in the middle of mixing I didn't have any eggs. I took a minute and ran to the computer and found a substitute for an egg in baking (apparently vegans use this in their baking) Who knew?

1 Egg = 2 Tbsp Flour
1/2 Tbsp Shortening
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
2 tsp Water
