Substitute Oil for Margarine and Butter

By substituting liquid oils for butter and margarine you can reduce your saturated fat intake by more than half and overall fat intake by 25%.

For baking, use lighter-flavored oils in cakes, muffins, and pizza dough; cookies need a blend of liquid and hard fats for best results.

1 teaspoon 3/4 teaspoon
1 tablespoon 2-1/4 teaspoons
