I know that feeling of wanting to make better meal choices when it comes to food. You want to cut back on your favorite foods, but sometimes, it’s just so hard.

The delicious comfort foods that we enjoy so much, we just don’t want to let them go. One thing I discovered that makes eating better easier is making simple swaps to recipes your family already enjoys.

This has been the easiest way that I have found that makes our family’s favorite recipes lighter and better for us. There are so many reasons why we need to make simple swaps. I don’t know if you are aware, but September is National Cholesterol Awareness Month.

This is one of the reasons why a simple swap is so important. For example, instead of using butter, I’ll use Mazola® Corn Oil. I recently discovered a clinical study showed Mazola Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, see Mazola.com.

That is crazy, right? This is one reason I try my best to make smart, heart-healthy choices for my family, which is why I use corn oil as my all-purpose cooking oil.

Mazola Corn Oil is an all-purpose, cholesterol-free cooking oil that is a smart heart-healthy* choice for your family. *See Mazola.com for more information on the relationship between corn oil and heart health.

It’s great for you to use and swap within a variety of recipes like baking, grilling, sautéing, stir-frying, or mixing up a marinade or dressing! So many different ways to use this corn oil! No need to worry about the smoke point because Mazola Corn Oil has a smoke point higher than most cooking oils at 450°F.

DIRTY RICE WITH GROUND TURKEY RECIPE

To make this recipe lighter, I swapped the ground beef for ground turkey, butter for corn oil, white rice to brown rice, and I added a ton of veggies, so it’s still flavorful.

These simple adjustments made this recipe a winner for dinner! My family never even noticed the swaps!

    I don’t know if I’ve got a bad link or what but there are no measurements on this site. Others like the recipe so I assume they were here. But not anymore! I see the list of ingredients but not how much of each. Measurements?
