Heart-healthy Cooking Tips

Healthy eating doesn’t have to be difficult or require you to take favorite meals off your family’s menu. In fact, making smart choices when cooking at home can give you more control over the types of tasty, heart-healthy dishes you put on the table.

Heart-healthy

Cook Fresh Vegetables the Heart-Healthy Way Roasting, steaming, grilling or baking can help bring out the natural flavors of vegetables. Adding herbs and spices can also help make veggies tastier.

Reduce Saturated Fat in Meat and Poultry Opt for poultry and fish over red meat and look for lean cuts of meat with minimal visible fat. Limit processed meats such as sausage, bologna, and salami.

Use Liquid Vegetable Oils in Place of Solid Fats Some fats are better for you than others. Liquid vegetable oils such as canola, safflower, sunflower, and olive oil can often be used instead of solid fats, such as butter, or lard.
