Want to make your recipes more nutritious – why not? Becoming an expert with food substitutions can save you calories or avoid undesirable ingredients (less healthy) and add better choices for a healthier diet.
For example: Most people do not get enough fiber. “In most recipes you can replace a high percentage of white flour with whole grain or bean flour. Another idea would be to grind up oats and nuts to use in place of some of the white flour. This works well in quick breads, muffins, and pancake/waffle batter.” Delicious, Nutritious, Pam Stuppy, MS, RD, LD in the Asheville Citizen Times, Tuesday, September 21, 2021.
