Chia Seeds

Try this if you are out of eggs or trying to get more omega-3s into your diet.

Nuts

Just as much crunch and a little more protein.

Dates

This substitution gives you a nutty, deep sweetness and one-third the calories.

You can even substitute shredded zucchini for half the spaghetti in a dish.
