Basic Cooking Substitution Tips Could Reduce Weight Gain

Are you trying to lose weight?  Recent studies have been done in the dietary industry that has located food substitutes to lower fat calories in food preparation.  Cooking low fat is becoming a catch phrase in the 21st century.  Learning how to implement these fundamental basic cooking tips, ideas and practices could save your life.

Unsweetened Applesauce Is The Wonder Substitute In The Kitchen

Reducing fat calories in your baking can be done with just a few simple substitutions.  Learning low-fat basic cooking tips is a great way to make the foods that your family loves without sacrificing the quality of the recipe.  I have always made banana bread for my family.  It is an excellent recipe however the recipe calls for ½ cup of oil.  I hated adding all that fat to the recipe and worried about the health of my family.  I quit making the bread.  My family complained but I worried more about their health than I did their complaints. Recently I discovered that it is possible to substitute ½ cup of unsweetened applesauce for the oil in my banana bread recipe.  Amazingly, the banana bread is moist, flavorful and no one in my family could taste the difference.  Now, I make the banana bread they enjoy with the personal satisfaction that they are not eating an unhealthy snack.

Later, I was surprised to discover that applesauce can also be used in place of butter for most recipes.  Matching the measurement exactly, for example ¼ cup butter to ¼ applesauce does not affect a recipe with the exception of providing less fat in the final product.

Reduce The Fat Calories One Recipe At A Time

Another discovery in basic cooking tips that I did not realize is that ½ cup evaporated fat free milk can be used as a substitution for ½ cup of heavy cream.  This is another calorie saver as well as healthy substitution that saves my family from eating too many unhealthy calories and still allows me to prepare the foods that they love.

Learning Basic Cooking Tips For Low-Fat Substitutions Could Save Your Life

Taking the time to research low-fat substitution in daily cooking recipes can make a huge difference in the daily, monthly and yearly fat intake consumed by you and your family.  Research supports that most Americans gain an average of ten pounds per year and that the obesity rate in the United States keeps climbing yearly.  If you want to remove yourself and your family from the high-risk weight gain issues that are plaguing the United States today, retraining and rethinking the way you cook could make all the difference.  Taking time to learn a few low-fat basic cooking tips could be all it takes to improve your health and live longer.
