Eating healthy is more than just choosing the right foods to eat. It’s also important to prepare foods in a healthy way. Whenever possible try grilling, broiling or baking your entrees. By doing so, you can reduce the total amount of cholesterol, fats and calories without giving up a lot of flavor. And if you like a little extra kick - herbs and spices are a healthy alternative for adding flavor.
When shopping for meats, choose “choice” or “select” grades of beef rather than “prime” and be sure to trim the fat off the edges before cooking. Use cuts of red meat and pork labeled “loin” and “round”, as they usually have the least fat. And with poultry, use the leaner light meat (breast) instead of the fattier dark meat (legs and thighs) and be sure to remove the skin.
