Reduce The Fat
- Spruce all visible fat from the meat and drain out all the extra fat from cooked meat. Skim fats from foods like stock, soup and stews.
- Using egg whites instead of whole eggs can help you remove at least one third of the fats or oil in many recipes.
- Other ways of reducing fats are to use natural sweets instead of rela sugar, its easy really, just replace the sugar with mashed banana or stewed apple.
- Exchange saturated fats with reasonable amounts of unsaturated fats, one example is to use a good quality of olive oil spread instead of better, it tastes better even if it is a little bit more heavy on the pocket. You can also use guacamole instead of cream cheese and instead of using a chocolate spread you can use a peanut butter spread, its not only tasty but also very healthy.
- If you worked hard enough following the previous ways then don’t be silly enough to fry the food. Think smart, and don’t add any excess fat while cooking and use healthy cooking methods – grill, steam or bake instead of roasting or frying, make use of non-stick pans which do not need to be greased or oiled and add a little stock as an alternative for oil while cooking. When adding fat, use the smallest amount feasible.
Reduce The Sodium
- Make an effort to not add any extra salt to your food while you are eating and obviously while you are cooking.
- Exert your self control and make sure your intake of ready-made processed foods and take-aways is minimum.
- Prefer to use lower salt options of packet foods - 0.6g of sodium or 1.5g salt is a high salt content. 0.1g of sodium and or 0.3g salt is a low salt content.
