Introduction

Low fat, no fat, high fat, fake fat: it seems that dietary recommendations over the last twenty years have changed with the wind. What are we supposed to eat? Are fats bad for us, and how much is too much?

Today the emphasis is more on good fat than super-low or no fat. We have to eat fat in order to absorb vitamins and obtain the essential fatty acids that are necessary for cell growth and production. The trick is to eat fats that are healthy. Monounsaturated fats, found in olive oil, nuts, and avocados, among other foods, may actually help reduce the risk of heart disease — and they’re delicious! It’s easy to transform recipes to use these healthy fats, and you’ll love how your food tastes.

Low fat is defined as 30 percent of calories from fat. Most Americans currently get 35 to 40 percent of their daily calories from fat, so while transforming your diet to a low-fat diet is a change, it’s not that drastic. Simple changes in the way you cook, cutting down on fat in recipes, and adding flavor with healthy, delicious ingredients will soon become second nature.

These fifty recipes are a great way to begin your new, low-fat lifestyle! The key is to start small. Make small changes; as you incorporate these into your life, gradually add more. Soon you’ll be fit, trim, healthy, and happier!

Crispy Tortilla Chips

Most commercial-brand tortilla chips are deep fried. With this lighter version, you don’t sacrifice flavor, just the artery-clogging potential.

Yields 4 cups of chips

Ingredients

8 (6-inch) corn tortillas

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

¹⁄2 teaspoon fine salt

¹⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place tortillas on work surface and brush all sides very lightly with the olive oil. Cut tortillas into 8 wedges each.

Arrange tortillas in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, salt, and cayenne pepper and toss to coat. Bake for 4 minutes, then turn and toss the chips and return to oven. Bake for 2 to 4 minutes longer until tortillas are crisp and light golden brown. Remove to wire rack to cool.
