Food Substitutions For Healthy Cooking

Many traditional recipes can be well adapted into grain free and sugar free meals, I do it all the time, it is just key to know what ingredients need substituting and what to use in replacement. It is also great to have a list of substitutions for those who have allergies or eliminate certain foods or personal reasons.
