Healthy Substitutions


I really like this article/chart on the above link. There are certain ingredients I try to avoid when cooking/baking and this chart will give you some good examples of alternatives. It would also be helpful if you or one of your family members suffers from a food allergy. For example:

1 cup of shortening = 1 cup of butter (use organic raw or cultured butter)
1 cup of corn syrup = 1 cup of honey (use raw, local honey)
1 cup of beer = 1 cup of chicken stock (use homemade chicken stock)
1 cup of mayo = 1 cup of plain yogurt
