Chef Solus’ Healthy Cooking Tips


Healthy cooking doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice taste. There are many little changes you can make to a recipe that will make it healthier

  1. Use reduced fat or low fat ingredients such as low fat cheese or skim milk
  2. Use small amounts of high salt ingredients such as soy sauce or chicken broth. Add water to dilute the amount.
  3. Use a small amount of healthy oils instead of butter, shortening or lard. Using a teaspoon or brush helps control the amount of oils you are using.
  4. Use low fat cooking methods such as grilling, steaming, boiling, or baking.
  5. Preserve the nutrients and colors in veggies. Cook them quickly by steaming or stir-frying.
  6. Skinless white meat chicken/turkey are low in fat. Lean ground turkey is a healthy substitute for ground beef.
  7. To lower sodium, you can replace salt with herbs and spices or some of the salt-free seasoning mixes. Use lemon juice, citrus zest or hot chilies to add flavor.
  8. Use whole grain rice, flour, and pasta. Look for the word “whole” on the package.
  9. Healthy oils (fat) usually comes from unrefined products such as fish, nuts, avocado, seeds, and olives.
