Before You Cook

• Throw away liquids
• Rinse vegetables under running water
• Grease baking dishes or pans with oil instead of shortening
• Chill meat before opening, so fat will harden and will be easier to remove
• Drain the juices from canned meat when at room temperature and rinse under running water to remove excess fat

When You Are Cooking

• Cut down on sugar used in recipes
• Use herbs and spices to flavor foods instead of salt
• Cook pasta and rice without adding salt to water
