Health Tip

Learning to identify low-fat food items on a menu is an easy way to plan a healthy meal when dining out. Phrases such as broiled, grilled, roasted, stir-fried, and steamed are often used to describe foods that are prepared with less fat. Limit entrees that are buttered, basted, fried, or creamed–these foods are usually prepared with significant amounts of fat.
