Secrets of Success

Recipe Revamping



I take my favorite ordinary recipes and try to pare them down using healthy alternatives until I come up with a combination that tastes good and is lower in calories using the sparkpeople recipe calculator. For example, I never use white flour anymore, always whole wheat. I use applesauce instead of oil. I always add a tablespoon or two of ground flax seed or bran to my baking to pump up the fibre. Little changes go a LONG way. :)
