Trying to cut calories without cutting flavor? These easy baking and cooking substitution help you create a healthier, and equally flavorful dish!
Vanilla Extract for Sugar
If you love vanilla and less calories, you’ll love this substitution. Since baking is such a science, you can’t completely cut out the sugar. But you can cut it in half and add a teaspoon of vanilla extract for the same results. Assuming a recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar, this swap takes the sugar calorie count from 775 calories to about 400. Not a bad number in our opinion.
