Eating healthy food doesn’t mean giving up your favorite foods and switching only to salads. Healthy cooking can be easy…. and fun! In many cases, existing recipes can be modified to provide a healthier alternative. Try these “small steps” to eat healthier each day:
Keep Fats to a Minimum
Minimize ‘hidden fats’ by choosing lean meats and reduced-fat dairy products. Many processed foods have hidden fats. The best fats are those that come from unrefined, natural fats in the form of oils found in nuts, seeds, fish, soy, olives, and avocados. If you add fats when cooking, keep the amounts as small as possible.
Choose Wisely at the Supermarket
