Cut down on visible fats

  • Be aware of how much butter or margarine that use and cut back to the least amount possible.
  • Try alternative lower fat spreads like reduced fat margarine, avocado, peanut butter, cottage or ricotta cheese.

Try these cooking techniques to keep the fat content low.

  • Stir-frying, dry roasting on a rack, grilling, or barbeque on an open grill
  • When cooking casseroles, mince dishes or soups let the dish go cold and skim off the fat that settles on top before reheating.
  • Extend meat dishes with legumes (eg lentils or beans) or vegetables
