20 grams of fat, but 8 + 4 doesn't = 20
I am going to try the plain unsweetened yogurt. I don't eat anything with vinegar in it, if I can help it.
Lemon is fine. When a recipe calls for lime, I will use lemon instead. Here I am in my 60's & finally learning to cook. I existed on things toasted and 3 of my mother's casserole recipes & canned good until tv dinners & microwaves. I always took vitamin/ mineral pills and eventually fiber pills, as I knew I wasn't eating right.
When I used to work in a health food store, when customers came looking for weight gain products, I said, "Follow me around and eat like I do." (-:
As a child I hated veggies and threw mine away any chance I got. The real problem was the salad dressings, the vinegar in them. As an adult I discovered salad bars and raw veggies and like many of them.
Raw cabbage and carrots taste fine w/o mayo. Steamed carrots w/o them being overcooked and not having butter or sugar added. Steamed broccoli is ok and so healthy. I read about that veggie only, that 90% of its nutrients are destroyed by microwaving them. That makes me wonder about the others.I appreciate being able to find these healthy recipes online.
