I just read a cool article that outlines a few smart substitutions for fatty foods. The article comes from my local medical center, the Grenada Lake Medical Center, in Grenada MS.
There are fatty foods which are better for you than others. Below we outline some you should be eating instead of the more common variety. Remember i’m not a dietician, just your friendly (and groovy) vegetarian, so always consult with a pro on any diet choice. ♥
Instead of Butter - Choose Smart Balance Omega Plus Spread
Instead of Whole Milk - Choose Organic Soy Milk
Instead of 1 Large Egg - Choose 1 omega 3 enriched egg
Instead of Olive Oil - Choose Canola Oil
Instead of Croutons - Choose English Walnuts
Instead of Fast Food Burger - Choose Black bean Burger
I really liked the fact that this brochure is not aimed at vegetarians in any way shape or form, yet it contained hearty and healthy vegetarian substitutions in their calculations. I don’t think we would have seen this years ago.
Essentially in the article they point out that mono fats and omega 3 fats are better for you than trans fats, and that you should avoid or reduce your intake of foods that contain trans fat.
