Quick Tip- Low Fat Saute
Everyone that knows me knows that I love to eat! Truth be told it is one of the main reasons that I exercise so frequently. But, at the same time eating the right foods at the right time is vitally important to your success within your fitness plan. I enjoy a lot of variety in my eating habits and sauteing meats and vegetables is a very popular way to prepare foods. Unfortunately it can also be a very high fat way to prepare foods.
Follow the steps below to eliminate the fats used in traditional sautes by substituting flavorful liquids in place of butter, margarine, or oil. Instead try using chicken or vegetable stock, dry sherry, red or white wine, fruit juice, vinegar, or soy sauce.
1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the above liquids in a saute pan over medium heat.
2. When the liquid begins to steam, and ingredients ans stir.
3. Continue to saute, stirring frequently, until the liquid in the pan evaporates. Then add 2 more tablespoons of the liquid, stirring to scrape up the glaze at the bottom of the pan.
4. Continue to cook, adding liquid as necessary, until done.
Now, enjoy a lower-fat, and healthier meal!!
