Tips of Cut Fat in Dinner

Low Fat Diet

1. Skip appetizers
2. Choose lean meats like chicken, turkey, pork loin
3. Select the fish at least twice a week. In this case, fatty fish are good choices because they contain omega-3 fatty acids, good fats that our body can not manufacture. Salmon is a great option
4. Go meatless at least once a week. Think vegetable curry, three bean chili, ratatouille, risotto, pasta and vegetables
5. Avoid cream and cheese filled dishes like casseroles
6. Oven fry instead of frying
7. Dishes flavored with herbs, spices, sauces and fruits instead
8. Use broth or nonfat milk / half and half in the mashed potatoes, soups, sauces and stews
9. Thicken with cornstarch sauces and salsa
10. Eat dessert from time to time, not every night, or after dinner with a piece of fruit
