    What healthy ingredient do you cook with the most?

    In the last few years, I've gotten into the habit of using olive oil in lieu of butter for many recipes and I've also replaced lettuce with spinach. What small changes if any have you made in your cooking habits, such as replacing one ingredient with another?

    I don't eat potatoes or rice, I started using quinoa and buckwheat. I switched from milk to almond milk and I only eat free range eggs.

    I love potatoes and rice but have had to make big reduction in carbs due to pre diabetes.
    I have substituted egg plant and zucchini for potatoes and have gone to basmati rice due to it's much lower glycemic index.
    I love olive oil and have always used it in lieu of other cooking oils.

    When a recipe calls for sour cream, I use plain yogurt.
    I gave up potato chips and fries.
    Also quit putting sugar in coffee and tea.

    Re: What healthy ingredient do you cook with the most?

    I've stopped acknowledging that it really is junk food. I've heard attitude is everything.

    But really, my beloved keeps me in line really well, so we've been eating healthy so long that I don't think of what we do as substituting anything, we just eat. I can't eat heavy meals anymore, meaning traditional Texas steak & potatoes, soul food, etc etc, only in small helpings.

    When we snack, we eat nuts more than potato chips, and often stir fry broccoli or tofu instead.
