Are you ready for Friday’s Daily Challenge/Tip? It’s #19, we’re rolling right along!

#19: Make ingredient switches: Did you know that there are many ingredients you can substitute for other ingredients to reduce fat content and other benefits? For example:

  • when a recipe calls for sour cream, substitute plain yogurt
  • when a recipe calls for cream cheese, use ricotta cheese

It’s something simple that once you know, it can save you extra calories and unnecessary fat in all kinds of recipes!
