One thing that will help us have a healthy heart is to make sure we use healthy fats. It sounds like an oxymoron huh? Healthy fats??
When i was learning to cook my mom and MIL both used Crisco. Getting rid of that and vegetable oil was one of the first changes I made in my kitchen.
I now use mostly extra virgin olive oil for sauteing, browning meat, etc and canola oil for baking. If a recipe calls for 1 cup of oil, I use at least 1/2 unsweetened applesauce.
I'm sold on I can't Believe it's Not Butter Spray, although I know some people don't like the taste.
There are so many healthy fat alternatives, find a few that will fit your lifestyle forever.
What do you use for baking, cooking and putting on your toast?
Please tell me you don't use crisco or vegetable oil....
