Modifying Regular Recipes
Some cooks have tried and true recipes they enjoy so much
they find ways to make them so they're lower in fats and
calories — but just as tasty as ever. Here are a few of
their fat-lowering tricks:
- Cut the amount of fat in a recipe to half or less. This
won't drastically change the taste of most dishes.
- Use fat-free chicken broth rather than butter or oil to
- Use skim milk, buttermilk, or even evaporated skim milk
in place of whole milk.
- Use 2 teaspoons of olive oil and a bouillon cube to
season your green beans rather than a ham bone.
You can actually have fun in serving your guests these
revised recipes and judging their reaction after you tell
them about their wonderful calorie and fat savings.
