Trying to cook healthy can often be a sticky situation. But it's not as difficult as you might think. There are plenty of things you can do to reduce your bottom line when it comes to fat and calories. The first fat-trimming trick is to invest in a decent quality nonstick pan. Cooking with a nonstick pan requires little oil and enables you to prepare your food without vegetable, canola or other high-fat oil. This is beneficial because just one tablespoon has 199 calories and 14 grams of fat. Although olive oil is better with 40 calories and 4.5 grams of fat, perhaps the best heart smart option is to prepare fish, chicken or beef in a non-stick pan using a fat-free cooking spray such as PAM.
