To get rid of the cholesterol and fat in your diet, follow these tips when you are cooking.

Most of your favorite recipes can be made healthier simply by substituting lower-fat ingredients. Look at the menu of ingredients on your recipe. Then look at the table below to see if any of the ingredients are placed in the left column. If so, you may make the recipe a healthier one utilizing the ingredient in the right column instead.

What Can I Substitute

Follow the following tips for the healthiest cooking methods.

Dietary fiber is found in every one of the following:

It is possible to choose healthy food and after that without realizing it add unhealthy ingredients if you aren't wise about how you add flavor. Use herbs rather than butter or margarine. Or use a little unsaturated vegetable oil. Many cookbooks have lists of herbs that enhance the taste of foods. Try one or two. You're apt to discover some new flavors that you like. Try basil on zucchini, in particular. Or use lemon pepper on broccoli.

The word homemade usually makes food sound better. And, and in addition perhaps, it often tastes better too. The true secret is that it's usually healthier for you. Use fewer prepackaged foods. Prepackaged sauces and mixes and instant products, like instant rice and pasta meals and instant cereals, often contain fat. It might appear less convenient at first, but try recipes for rice dishes from low-fat cookbooks or magazines.

Soon you'll have a few recipes memorized. This will make it easy for you to prepare dishes in fresher, healthier ways using your own mix of spices. You could also be amazed at how very little time other homemade dishes that don't rely on a package really take.

In case you cannot bring your LDL - the bad cholesterol - down to a healthy level by reducing the quantity of fat and cholesterol you eat, try this. Add foods like margarines and salad dressings that lower cholesterol.
