Use these cooking techniques and follow our tips to cut calories and fat without sacrificing flavor.

1. Light Tip: Steam with Flavor

Instead of water, steam with flavorful ingredients (such as vegetables and wine) that create moist heat and end up on your plate.

2. Light Tip: Less Yolk, More White

Rather than eliminating yolks altogether, just use fewer. You're still reducing fat, and you will avoid the rubbery texture obtained by using only egg whites.

3. Light Tip: Bake, Don't Fry

There's no need to fry in a lot of oil to get a crispy breadcrumb crust. Before baking, moisten the crumbs with a little oil; coat pork, chicken, or fish. Bake until golden, and the crust will be just as crispy.

4. Light Tip: To Use Less Oil, Broil

This is another way to cook with less oil. A broiler heats from the top, so you need very little oil to prevent food from sticking to the cooking surface.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
