Sometimes it's challenging to figure out what to use when you're trying to limit or eliminate animal products from your diet. Here are a few tips to get you started...

OILS

   Coconut

  • Great for high heat cooking & baking

  • Use as butter substitute

  • Coconut flavor (unless refined)

  • 350℉ smoke point

   Olive

  • Best for a low flame sauté 

  • Great for salad dressings

  • 320℉ smoke point

   Grapeseed

  • Great for high heat cooking & frying

  • 420℉ smoke point

SWEETENERS

  Agave

  • Sugar alternative

  • Dark & light varieties

  • 1.5 times sweeter - less is more

  Maple Syrup

  • Heat stable so works well in recipes

  • Packed with several vitamins & minerals

  • Can be used in coffee, tea, and anywhere else sugar may be used

  • Combine 1 tbsp of ground flax seeds with 3 tbsp of water for an egg substitute

  • Great salad or oatmeal topping

  • Great source of fiber

FLAX SEEDS

CHIA SEEDS

  • Combine 1 tbsp of ground chia seeds with 3 tbsp of water for an egg substitute

APPLESAUCE

  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce works well as an egg substitute in baked goods and pancakes

  • Can be used to reduce the amount of butter or oil used when baking

  • Great source of fiber and vitamin C

  • The healthiest type of applesauce is unsweetened and preferably homemade

  • When making homemade applesauce, organic unpeeled apples are best for added fiber

  • Can also be used as a sugar substitute in baking, although this requires a reduction in the amount of liquid added to said recipe
