Health Tip of the Day

How to Cut Back on Saturated Fats

  • Cook with polyunsaturated and monounsaturated oils.

  • Avoid foods high in saturated fats such as beef, lamb, mutton, dark-meat poultry and poultry skin, butter and other whole-milk dairy products.

  • Read food labels on processed foods, especially those on chips, cookies and crackers. These foods often are made with highly saturated tropical oils, lard or hydrogenated vegetable oils.

  • Trim visible fat from meat before cooking. Remove the skin from chicken, turkey and duck before eating.

  • Cook the leanest cuts of meat.

  • Eat at least two meatless or low-meat meals a week.

  • Snack on fruits, carrot sticks, air-popped popcorn and low-fat crackers instead of chips and other high-fat snacks.
