How to Remake your Old Favourite Holiday Recipes - December 2016

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!

The Doom Bias
What has been the predominant prophecy on the planet? History shows us that it’s the scenario of Armageddon, where humanity destroys itself. That was supposed to happen at the turn of the millennium, or the year 2000. Remember the big scary prediction of 2012? The prediction was that we wouldn’t make it to 2013, since it was “the end of time.” Obviously neither of these predictions happened, as we are now several years past those dates! However, it appears that our appointment with doom is still alive, and just keeps being delayed. Why does our doomsday clock keep changing? Have we actually entered a new reality? If so, why is everybody still waiting for the end? Why do we have this “doom bias?” Interested? Then read on (smile).
