Switching to a low fat diet is not just about choosing low fat ingredients. How you prepare your low fat ingredients is equally important. Many healthy dishes may lose its sense of being a “healthy dish” from pantry to the plate, all because of an unhealthy food preparation.
Don’t worry because low fat coking does not mean that you have to possess a very promising cooking skill or invest in highly expensive cookware. With basic cooking techniques, you can easily prepare food in healthy ways.
Use the following methods that require little to no fat, to make the most from your low fat and healthy ingredients and create a meal that the whole family would love.
Try doing some of the above techniques by cooking our easy to cook ulam like Braised Beef , Steamed Chicken and Sinigang na Bangus sa Kamias.
