  Low Fat Recipes

By using the low-fat recipes, you can achieve your goal of a trimmer, healthier body. There is strong evidence that the high levels of fat consumed by most Americans are a major risk factor for conditions like gallbladder disease, cancer, heart disease and diabetes. The American Heart Association, the National Academy of Science, the American Cancer Society, and many other groups and nutrition boards across the country recommend a diet in which a maximum of 30% of calories come from fat (no more than 10% of total calories from saturated fats), 55-65% calories come from carbohydrates, and 10-15% of calories are provided by proteins. From a weight loss viewpoint, a low-fat diet is ideal because it minimizes the amount of fat that your body has to store in the first place.

Tips on Low Fat Cooking

  • The use of a nonstick skillet will greatly reduce the amount of liquid or fat you need to keep things moving freely in the pan.
  • When baking, use fruit purees, applesauce, or plain non-fat yogurt instead of oil.
  • Use fat-free cream cheese or blended fat-free cottage cheese instead of regular cream cheese.
  • Experiment with fat-free products as substitutes for the regular type products in your recipes.
  • Use de-fatted broth, fruit juice, wine, water, or cider to saute meats and vegetables instead of oil or butter.
  • If a recipe must have the fat to work, try using half the fat.
