Tips for Healthy Cooking
- Go easy on fat, sugar and salt when preparing foods. For example, make oven-baked chicken instead of fried chicken or baked cod instead of fried. You don’t have to leave out all the fat, sugar or salt – just limit the amount you use.
- Flavor foods with herbs, spices and other low-fat seasonings, instead of using rich sauces or gravy. Experiment with different seasonings to find unique combinations that you and your family enjoy.
- Opt for homemade dessert to save money and make it healthier. When you are baking yourself, you can use sugar substitutes and other tricks to make it more nutritional.
- Remove skin from poultry before cooking to lower the fat content.
