    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.

    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.

    I have stopped eating junk food. That's my way of maintaining a fit body.

    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.

    I don't have salt in the house anymore and I don't buy canned veggies except for refried beans
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    Find a good recipe for borracho beans and mash/process the leftover beans. You'll never buy canned again.
