Health Tip: Cook With Lean Dairy Products

(HealthDay News) -- To cut down on fat and calories without sacrificing dietary calcium, experts say you should cook with low-fat or fat-free dairy products.

The Joslin Diabetes Center mentions these examples:

  • Choose low-fat or nonfat yogurt, low-fat cheese and skim or low-fat milk.

  • When creating a cream sauce, use evaporated skim milk.

  • Flavor your coffee with fat-free half-and-half.

  • Instead of butter, use a bit of trans-fat-free margarine.
