MY HEALTH TIPS FOR THE DAY!

One or two meals a week, substitute beans or legumes instead of meat in salads, soups, or in the main dish.

Chill soups, gravies, and stews in the refrigerator, then skim the fat off the top.

Include more fiber to feel full. Eat more lentils, dry beans, peas, vegetables, fruits, brown rice, and whole grains.

For a great low-fat, low-sugar snack, try no-butter, low-salt popcorn. Two cups only has 60 calories!

Removing the skin from chicken saves you 5 grams of fat every time.

When baking, use applesauce instead of butter to save 90 calories.

Cut back on foods with hidden sugar like ketchup, white bread, canned fruit, and salad dressing.

Grate your cheese rather than slicing - you will use less cheese and save fat grams.
