6 Smart Substitutions For Fatty Foods

Posted Dec 21 2008 4:36pm

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.

Bink You

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.

To view more articles on living well head on over monthly magazine from GLMC.
