Fat free recipes
July 8, 2007 4:37pm CST
I have recently had to change my diet drastically, and am needing some fat free recipes. I am not necessarily looking for vegetarian, but they must be fat free, or as close as one can come to to it (1-2 grams fat max). Thanks.

Avoid fried foods at all cost. Opt for steamed or boiled cooked food. Make sure that when you eat pork, beef or chicken the fat is removed before cooking. And if your going to fry something opt for healthier oils like Olive Oil, Soybean Oil, and Canola Oil. And do read the labels when you buy processed foods.
