Health Tip: Go Easy on the Gravy12/11/13
(HealthDay News) -- Gravy makes a savory addition to your
favorite holiday foods, but it can pack a lot of unhealthy fat.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests how to cut the
fat in your gravies and soups:
- Use a spoon with a wide mouth to skim fat from meat and poultry
- When making soups, stews, broth and chili, refrigerate before
serving and remove the fat that solidifies on top.
- To speed up solidifying the fat, place a few ice cubes in a
broth, soup or gravy and remove the hardened fat that accumulates
near the ice.
