How to Remake your Old Favourite Holiday Recipes - December 2019

By Shannon Bliss

Simple tips on how to remake your old favourite recipes…just in time for Thanksgivin

 

This is simpler than you would think…

When I look at any recipe I look for good healthy ingredients.

 

If a recipe calls for margarine I substitute it for butter and if it calls for vegetable oil, I switch that to olive or coconut oil. Depending on what flavour I’m trying to achieve.

 

So here is a quick list of substitutes:

 

Margarine – butter

Vegetable oil – olive or coconut oil

Lard or shortening - butter

White flour – whole wheat, spelt, quinoa…there are many to choose from now, just check the consistency of them…sometimes a blend is best.

Quick oats – large slow oats or quinoa flakes

Sugar – raw cane sugar (this can safely be cut in half)

Sweeteners (Yuk – chemicals) – better to use sugar…don’t let the ads fool you!

Corn syrup (so bad!) – Agave nectar, maple syrup, applesauce

Table salt – sea salt

Milk (some people have a hard time with lactose) – try almond milk

 

Check to make sure your baking powder and soda does not have an aluminum base – you want to be able to remember how to bake later in life!

 

Ground beef – ground turkey (I just made a shepherd’s pie with turkey – delicious!)

 

Remember it always tastes better from scratch…and your family will be healthier!

If you have a recipe that you want reworked, send it to Shannon  and I’ll see what I can do.

 

Happy cooking!

Wellness Tip
Addressing Muscle Soreness
The smartest way to address muscle soreness is to avoid it. When starting a new training program, or upgrading an existing one, go into it gradually. Take several weeks, even longer if necessary. Should you experience soreness along the way, give your muscles a day or two of rest to recover.
