Grandma's Recipes

Why are grandma’s recipes so fabulous??  Because she made them over and over, changing things and tweaking things every time to finally get them to be perfect.  So when you try to make that recipe a little bit healthier and it doesn’t turn out exactly the way you wanted...tweak it again next time, but don’t give up. Lots of recipes are written for the middle of the line sort of person when it comes to health.  Butter, cream, oil, sugar and white flour seem to make their way into most recipes found online.   But with just a couple changes, your recipes can be much better for you.  For example, use plain Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream.  My mom has used it in her favorite cheesy potato recipe, and I’ve even used it as a dallop on top of my chili.  I made a chicken pot pie with whole wheat flour and it was awesome!  See what using just an egg white rather than a whole egg will do to your recipe and I dare you to use cauliflower instead of potatoes next time you’re looking for  mashed yumminess to go with your grilled chicken breast.  Before you know it, you won’t be able to remember a time these healthy substitutions weren’t second nature.
