    Heart Healthy Recipes from Dianne Johnson, RD - St. Anthony Hospital

    Even snacks and desserts can be healthier when you use her suggestions to cut out fat and calories in your recipes.

    1. Substitute non-fat, plain Greek yogurt for sour cream or buttermilk. Not only do you reduce fat, you add protein!
    2. Substitute applesauce in place of half of the oil or half of the sugar in your recipe.
    3. Use low fat or fat free cream cheese in place of regular cream cheese.
    4. Use Egg Beaters in place of eggs to reduce calories and cholesterol.
