  • Do not use butter
  • Do not deep fry
  • Use non-stick cookware
  • Don't add salt to food while its cooking
  • Use Iodized salt

  • Use pesto, salsas, chutneys and vinegars instead of sour creams, butter and creamy sauces
  • Reduce the use of soy sauce, tomato sauce and processed sauces and condiments

  • Add herbs in the last few minutes of cooking

Cooking Meats:
