For the oil in chocolate baked goods I often substitute with half oil and half baby food pureed prunes. No one has been able to tell the difference yet, and I get rave reviews for the baked goods.

I'm so glad I found this list! I've printed it out and will hang it on the fridge. And, who knows? I may even buy some tofu -- for the first time ever -- and try it in my next stir fry.

Anyone know where to find tempeh in the grocery store? I know where the tofu is, but don't think I've ever seen tempeh. In fact, I'm not even sure what I'm looking for.

Half the sugar really does work in baking. I do this all the time, and my husband (who usually whines about my "healthy" recipes) does not know the difference! I don't notice it either, and doing this cuts a LOT of calories (and saves money on sugar)!

I made Cabbage Vegetable Soup today. I used 3 c black beans instead of cabbage and I used 2 beef bouillion cubes instead of meat. It is sooo yummy! I will make this again, for sure!

When substituting margarine for ant other fat, be certain you are using non-hydrogenated margarine. There are a number available; I use Western Family's non-hydrogenated with olive oil.

I use Applesauce in place of oil in most baking items like cakes & brownies. The brownies do turn out a little more cake like and not as chewy. I usually cook them not as long to have them be more chewy.
