Health Tip: Get Creative in the Kitchen

Health Tip: Get Creative in the Kitchen


(HealthDay News) -- Healthy cooking doesn't have to be bland and boring. The American Heart Association offers these healthy cooking techniques to help you prepare delicious, heart-healthy meals:

  • Trim away fat from meat before you cook, and look for leaner cuts labeled as "select" or "choice." Stay away from "prime" cuts.
  • Choose lean cuts of red meat and pork, such as those labeled "round" or "loin." For poultry, opt for skinless white meat instead of dark meat.
  • For a recipe that calls for eggs, nix a whole egg in favor of two egg whites.
  • Use fat-free or low-fat cheeses, yogurt or milk in recipes.
  • For salad dressings and marinades, choose those with no or little fat.
  • Limit how much salt you use when you cook, and look for ingredients that are low in sodium.
