And now, for the tip of the day!
Today's tip is pretty simple. Change the type of fat you are cooking/baking with. Instead of using margarine (made with hydrogenated oils) and butter, try using other fats such as olive oil and canola oil. We need to limit our intake of saturated fat (which butter has tons of).
