Who doesn’t like rich foods? Of course, rich foods are not good for our health. They clog our arteries and raise our cholesterol. Small changes can add up to huge results if you substitute low-fat and fat-free ingredient for high-fat ones when you cook. Your taste buds won’t suffer, and your body will thank you.
Here’s today’s healthy cooking tip:
Substitute low-fat or fat-free yogurt when soup, sauce, and dip recipes call for sour cream or mayonnaise. For thicker sauces, stir 2 teaspoons of flour per cup of yogurt into the yogurt before cooking to prevent curdling.
I do love my sour cream, but I’m going to give this a try. What about the rest of you? Post a comment to enter the drawing for books plus a special gift from our Book Club Friday author this week.-- AP
