Benefits of using low fat recipes

In this day and age when there are so many food options that are considered bad for you, eating healthy meals can seem like an uphill struggle. Especially when you have a busy lifestyle that doesn’t often allow you to cook for yourself.

You find that even the most healthy lunches and meals you can buy pre-made, have an inconceivable fat content. There are lots of benefits to you not trusting the labels, and eating a home-made and healthy recipe while you catch up on a Foxy game of bingo, or watch TV after work.

Saturated fats – There are two types of fat. Good unsaturated fats which your body needs to maintain its health, and saturated fats aka the ones that make you put on weight. It’s the saturated fats that you want to avoid. If you create a meal from a recipe with reduced saturated fats, then you’ll notice a steady weight loss over time.

Lower cholesterol – When you opt for meal recipes that use healthier meats and plenty of vegetation, you are reducing your cholesterol, which in turn gives you more energy and reduces your chances of getting heart disease. It’s a simple case of cooking the salmon dish instead of the steak one. Your intake of cholesterol should be less than 300 mg per day.

Fish over red meat – Yes, you may not be a fan of fish, but it is a much healthier meat to take in than red meats like beef. Oily fish contains omega-3 which helps to reduce your chances of getting cardiovascular disease.

The way you cook – When you fry food, you are making it less healthy for you to cook. That’s why you’ll notice a healthy eater will boil or poach their eggs instead of frying them. By baking, roasting, steaming, boiling and broiling your foods, you are making the recipe healthier.
