Eating an adequate amount of fresh vegetables and fruits provides you not only with the fuel for your daily routine but also supplies you the required amount of vitamins and minerals.
Ask for food dishes which are cooked by steaming, broiling, baking, or grilling, whenever you go out for dining at a restaurant. The steamed, baked, grilled, broiled, and baked foods are cooked in a way that ensures low consumption of fats or oils.
Avoid eating processed foods like cookies, fries, doughnuts, icing, cakes, biscuits, fried fast food, and microwave popcorn. Not every single packaged food contains trans fats, so avoid having one of the foods mentioned above to stay healthy.
Always read the nutrition labels of packaged and processed foods and look for the number of trans fats present in the food serving you are about to eat. If there is a partially hydrogenated oil as a primary ingredient in the food items, try not to buy this food item.
Avoid the use of stick margarine and vegetable shortening. Switch to healthier options of fats like olive oil, corn oil, soybean oil, canola oil, or sunflower oils as they are all lower in saturated fats. Incorporate these healthy oils while preparing your meals. The healthy fats also taste good when used in baking or cooking.
