Braising, broiling, grilling and steaming can capture the flavor and nutrients of your food without adding excess fat, oil or sodium. If your recipe calls for frying with oil or butter, try baking or broiling the food instead. If the directions say to baste the meat or vegetables in oil or drippings, use wine, fruit juice, vegetable juice or fat-free vegetable broth instead.
