10 Easy Cooking Swaps

Ever look at a recipe, really want to make it, but can't get past the amount of fat (saturated fat especially), sugar, or whatever else is in it?  I do this all the time.  Especially with family favorites that are passed down (sorry grandma!).  There are some ways to lighten up your dishes while keeping flavor/texture/look intact.  Here are some of my favorites that I use often, and how much they will save you in calories and fat.  Some make a HUGE difference in calories for your recipe.  Worth giving it a try, right?


What substitutions do you make that turn out well in recipes?  Share in the comments section below!  (Couscous recipe coming later this week!!)
