Ingredient substitutions pack nutritional punch

Ingredient substitutions pack nutritional punch

Want to boost the amount of vitamins, minerals and fiber in your regular recipes? Try some simple substitutions. Use whole-wheat flour for half of all-purpose flour. Use rolled oats or crushed bran cereal instead of dry bread crumbs. Replace iceberg lettuce with arugula, chicory, collard greens, dandelion greens, kale, spinach or watercress. And instead of white rice try brown rice, wild rice, bulgur or pearl barley.
