The flaky crust wrapped around our <a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/peach_raspberry_pie.html">Peach-Raspberry Pie recipe</a> is the answer. We use whole-grain flour for a boost of fiber and heart-healthy canola oil replaces most of the butter. The delicious result cuts nearly 60 calories and 12 grams saturated fat from a traditional recipe. <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-1"><legend>Related Content Group 1</legend><div class="field field-type-text field-field-relatedtitle1"> <div class="field-label">Related Content Title 1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Tips for Making Pies </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-relatedlinks1"> <div class="field-label">Related Links 1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/healthy_cooking/healthy_cooking_101_basics_techniques/kitchen_tips_techniques/how_to_make_pie_crust">How to Make Pie Crust</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/healthy_cooking/healthy_cooking_101_basics_techniques/kitchen_tips_techniques/how_to_make_a_pie_crust_lattice_top_pie">How to Make a Pie Crust: Lattice-Top Pie</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/healthy_cooking/healthy_cooking_101/kitchen_tips_techniques/how_to_flute_or_crimp_pie_crust">How to Flute or Crimp Pie Crust</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/6_tips_for_perfect_summer_pies">6 tips for perfect summer pies</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-2"><legend>Related Content Group 2</legend><div class="field field-type-text field-field-relatedtitle2"> <div class="field-label">Related Content Title 2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Healthy Pie Recipes </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-relatedlinks2"> <div class="field-label">Related Links 2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/summer_fruit_pies_tarts">Summer Fruit Pies and Fruit Tarts</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/healthy_apple_pie_and_more_fall_pie_recipes">Healthy Apple Pie and More Fall Pie Recipes</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/low_calorie_ice_cream_pies_more_frozen_dessert_recipes">Low-Calorie Ice Cream Pies &amp; More Frozen Dessert Recipes</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cooking/healthy_cooking_101_basics_techniques/kitchen_tips_techniques/how_to_make_pie_crust_healthier#comments Stacy Fraser Healthy Cooking - Healthy Cooking 101: Basics & Techniques Fri, 20 Jul 2012 18:29:12 +0000 Erin McCormick 112719 at http://www.eatingwell.com How to Bake with Whole-Wheat Flour http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cooking/healthy_cooking_101_basics_and_techniques/how_to_bake_with_whole_wheat_flour <div class="field field-type-text field-field-original-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Ask the Test Kitchen Manager </div> </div> </div> <p>In the EatingWell Test Kitchen, we bake with whole-wheat flour as much as possible.

That means 70 percent of Americans are eating soy protein less than once a month—if at all. Why? Tofu is an economical, low-fat and cholesterol-free protein source. And consuming 25 grams of soy protein a day, such as that in tofu or soymilk, may help reduce risk of heart disease. But Americans still seem to avoid it. Maybe they don’t think they’ll like the taste or the texture. If that’s true for you, try our Kung Pao Tofu with extra-firm tofu cooked to a toothsome texture and dressed in a full-flavored sauce. Southwestern Tofu Scramble will convince you that tofu’s crumbly texture (it mimics scrambled eggs) can be an asset, not a detractor. Wow any crowd with Skillet Tofu Parmigiana—tender, breaded tofu patties, flavorful marinara and melted mozzarella.

While testing these five freezer-pop recipes, I was greeted by, “Mom, Mom, did you bring me another popsicle?” at the end of every day. My son Sawyer was our official under-5 taste-tester and he took his job seriously. Although his hands-down favorite was the Vanilla-Orange Freezer Pop, he gave high marks to all, except the coffee-flavored confection. Just one taste of the chocolaty Mocha Ice Pop and he declared, “This one’s just for moms and dads.” What Sawyer didn’t know is that all these pops are less than 90 calories each, so you can experience guilt-free pleasure when cooling off with one. Go ahead, take a lick.</p> <p>Tricks for the Treats<br /> Need Popsicle Molds? Find molds like the ones pictured here by Tovolo ($9.95 for a set of 6 star-shaped molds) and more supplies for making frozen treats at amazon.com.</p> <p>DIY Molds: If you don’t have your own funky molds, divide the ice pop mixture among small paper or plastic cups instead. Freeze until very thick, but not completely frozen, 1 to 2 hours. Insert frozen-treat sticks and continue freezing until completely firm, 4 to 5 hours more.</p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cooking/kids_cooking/better_than_store_bought_easy_freezer_popsicles#comments Stacy Fraser Recipes & Menus - Kids Recipes Healthy Cooking - Kids Cooking Tue, 18 Aug 2009 18:27:52 +0000 Paula Joslin 9706 at http://www.eatingwell.com 5 Easy Recipes for Healthy, Homemade Gifts http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cooking/holiday_entertaining/5_easy_recipes_for_healthy_homemade_gifts <p>Every year, my mother, my sisters and I made dozens and dozens of cookies to fill our famous holiday tins.
