Health Tip: Preparing Food With Less Fat

Skim the fat from soups and stews
(HealthDay News) -- The way you prepare food can go a long way toward cutting the amounts of fat and calories in your diet.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these fat-trimming suggestions:
Use a skimmer to remove the fat from the top of stews and soups. Skip French fries and bake potatoes in the oven instead. Swap proportions of healthy vs. high-fat foods. For example, instead of a big bowl of ice cream topped with a little fruit, opt for a big bowl of fruit topped with a little ice cream.
