Just make healthier substitutions.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions:
- Season with herbs and seasonings, instead of salt, butter or oil.
- Sautee dishes using a bit of wine, mild-flavored juice or low-sodium broth, instead of oil or butter.
- Poach fish or skinless poultry in water, herbs or low-sodium broth, instead of frying them.
- Use lean cuts of beef and pork, trimming any fat.
- Swap high-fat cheeses for low-fat versions.
- Use evaporated nonfat milk, instead of whole milk.
- Swap low-fat protein sources, such as lentils or beans, for meat.
- Use canola or olive oil to make salad dressings.
