Notes

Tips and substitutions: Sugar and spice and all things nice: • Added sugar should be used sparingly. • This includes normal sugar (white or brown) Honey or Maple syrup. • Sugar intake should be limited to 6 -9 teaspoons of added sugar from all foods and drinks per day. Substitutions: • Low fat milk may be substituted for Non-sweeted Low fat Almond milk, Rice milk or Soya milk depending on your preference or diet choice. • Eggs may be substituted a mixture of ground up flaxseed/chia seeds and water 1 Egg = 1 Tablespoon Flaxseed or Chia seeds + 3 Tablespoons of water Mix together and let sit for a couple of minutes to make your “egg”. The seeds will become swollen and chewy after a couple of minutes. Proceed as directed further with recipe. • Substitute normal sugar if honey or maple sugar is not available. Fats and oils • Choose healthy fats found in sunflower, canola or olive oil, soft tub margarines, unsalted peanut butter, nuts and seeds, avocado and fish.
