REDUCE CHOLESTEROL ~ Use vegetable oil or margarine instead of butter
~ Substitute 2 egg whites for 1 egg, or use egg substitute ~ Use more
vegetables and grains and less meat in recipe ~ Use soy-based product
to replace part of meat eg. tofu ~ Use nonfat milk products instead of
whole milk REDUCE FAT CONTENT ~ Use reduced calorie mayonnaise and
salad dressing ~ Blend cottage cheese or yogurt with milk for sour
cream topping ~ Replace regular whipping cream with low-cal topping or
yogurt ~ Remove visible fat from meat and skin from poultry before
cooking ~ Decrease oil in marinades and salad dressing; increase
vinegar, water and seasonings ~ Use foods canned in their own juice or
water ~ De-fat meat drippings by refrigerating and skimming fat off
the top ~ Decrease the amount of fat used in baked goods by 1/3 to 1/2
and increase fluids called for to reach desired consistency. ~ Cheese
that is finely grated or thinly sliced goes further ~ Pour some of the
fat off the top of "natural" peanut butters REDUCE SODIUM CONTENT ~
Use low-salt or no-salt-added products ~ Increase your use of herbs
and spices in place of salt in recipes ~ Use fresh foods whenever
possible in place of canned or processed (soup mixes, cured meats etc)
or rinse canned foods (tuna) with water ~ Do not add salt to water
when cooking pasta or other foods REDUCE SUGAR CONTENT ~ Decrease the
amount of sugar called for in traditional recipes by at least 1/3;
substitute fruit juices, nectars or pureed fruits. ~ Use fruit canned
in water or fruit juice ~ Use non caloric sweeteners if needed to
increase the sweetness of a recipe without added calories. (Most
baked desserts require at least 3/4 tsp. sugar per serving to achieve
a desirable flavor.) Adapted from Univ. of Calif. San Diego Healthy
