Healthy cooking hints……………….

To save on fat and calories, use low-fat plain yogurt in place of sour cream or mayonnaise, and buy low-fat cheese and milk instead of full-fat versions, says O’Rourke. Add flavor to vegetables with low-fat cheese, nuts, salad dressing or margarine with no trans fat; then add herbs and spices. Blatner suggests an Italian blend on green beans, curry on cauliflower, cumin on sauteed bell peppers, and lemon pepper on broccoli.

Eating Healthier…………

In many cases, your favorite recipes can be modified so they offer a lower fat and calorie content. Choose the reduced or low-fat version of a food if possible – for example milk, cheese, yoghurt, salad dressings and gravies. Also choose lean meat cuts and skinless chicken breasts. Cut’em when you can!

Lowering the fat………

In many cases, favorite recipes can be modified so they offer a lower fat and calorie content. When possible choose to steam, bake, grill, braise, boil or microwave your foods, rather than deep fry them.

Eat Healthier………

* Eat fish regularly. Try different ways of cooking such as baking, broiling, grilling and poaching to add variety.
* Include plant foods as sources of protein, including soybeans, pinto beans, lentils and nuts.
* Substitute two egg whites for each whole egg in recipes. (The cholesterol and fat are in the yolk not in the white.)
* Replace higher-fat cheeses with lower-fat options such as reduced-fat feta and part-skim mozzarella.
* Thicken sauces with evaporated fat-free milk instead of whole milk.
* Trim all fat from meat before cooking. Remove the skin from chicken or turkey
* Try using lower-fat milk and yogurt. Start with 2% products, then move to 1% and finally to fat-fre to adjust to the new taste.
* Spoon off fat from meat dishes once they have been chilled in the refrigerator and the fat has hardened on the top.
