It was trendy in 2011, and it will continue to be a trendsetter in 2012 — Simple substitutions for healthier meals.
Cooking healthy meals is really not rocket science. But because of old habits or lack of experimenting, we often fall into a rut with cooking methods and staple dishes.

One key way to dropping inches and pounds lies in being able to control these cravings. I am not suggesting to ramp up your willpower, but use simple substitution. It’s a great way of ensuring that you feel fulfilled with an old family favorite, but you can be satisfied that you’re eating healthy.
