Tips For Lighter Healthy Eating

When trying to trim down, eat more soup than usual. It fills you up without causing you to overeat. Soup is also great for finishing off leftovers such as chicken, and it's an easy way to fit an extra serving of vegetables into your day. Stay away from cream-based soups. If you like your soup on the thick side, puree white beans or cooked potatoes and stir the mixture into the broth. Experiment with herbs and seasonings for fun flavors.


When preparing a pork or beef roast, insert slices of garlic in slits on top of the roast before baking. It infuses the meat with flavor without adding fat. You can also add sprigs of rosemary or an herb blend.

To get rid of "fishy" flavors with just about any type of fish, cover it with milk. Let it soak for 30-90 minutes and cook as directed. This helps get rid of some of the fishy taste.

For a different tuna salad, mix chopped pickled beets into the tuna. There's no need for mayonnaise or salad dressing, so it's lower in fat. Just add enough beets to a can of tuna to make it moist.
