How to alter recipes to make them macro-friendly

Any tips for altering “normal” recipes to be macro-friendly? I know doubling the protein is an easy one; any others?

Our daily email from September 22 (check your inbox!) talks all about healthy substitutions and some macro hacks that you’ll find very helpful! A snippet of the email is to consider trading:

Ground beef for ground turkey

Sour cream for cottage cheese or greek yogurt

Heavy cream for skim milk + cornstarch or evaporated milk (comes in fat free too!)

Regular rice for cauliflower rice

Mayo for greek yogurt

Refried bean for fat free refried beans (they exist!)

Regular bacon for turkey bacon

No one says it has to be an all or nothing swap: mix 1/2 cauliflower rice and 1/2 regular, 1/2 pasta and 1/2 zucchini noodles!
