Until I had children, cooking was never at the top of my list for “things to do.” After kids, everything changed. Daily, I am on the lookout for more and more healthy recipes for my children. Typically, I want to find meals that are not only easy to make (since time always seems to be a reason), but are also good for my girls.
Country Crock® spreads are a staple in my kitchen for a few reasons. First, it has 70% less saturated fat than butter and 30% fewer calories. Second, I can use it while cooking almost anything. Since breakfast is my families favorite meal of the day, cooking with Country Crock® spreads begins at an early hour. Every morning, my girls wake up to a home cooked breakfast by yours truly! I start by pulling out egg whites, baked beans, toast and of course, my Country Crock® spread. I generally fire up the stove, add some Country Crock® spread to my cooking pan and warm it up. I use the Country Crock® spread as an alternative for oil since I am not a fan of food that is greasy. I add the egg whites, and some milk in the pan and watch my scrambled egg masterpiece come to live. Immediately after, I warm my baked beans, put toast in the toaster and voila… breakfast is ready! Besides my family, we are always joined by Country Crock® spreads at the breakfast table to put the finishing touches on our toast.
The Country Crock® spreads are an easy way to incorporate healthy eating into your diet. They work as a substitute for so many products that are not good for you. The flavor is just right as it tastes just like butter but doesn’t have the same content.
