Have you ever considered substituting butter, mayonnaise, oils or sour cream? Here is a chart that will help you out on the conversion process if you are trying to cut some fat in your diet. It makes it pretty easy and is a guide but you can definitely try more substitutions on your own. Have fun with it and let your taste buds be your guide and decide on your recipes!
I have been trying to cook healthier for some time now. I have made quite a few recipes in the past that use sour cream, some cakes I have used for oil substitute, and for tacos replaced sour cream with Greek yogurt ( No one knew!) I have even tried the low fat sour cream from time to time for different things, but I have found out that Greek yogurt is a great replacement for sour cream in most recipes, so I have started converting many of them. I have used it in casseroles, aiolis, cakes and dips in lieu of sour cream. If you have not tried this as a substitute you should give it a go sometime it will definitely be an eye opener on the calorie exchange, and the taste is not very different, so most will not even notice.
