                          COOKING FISH AND POULTRY

You and your family will be healthier and live longer if you:

1. Remove the skin from poultry before cooking. Chicken skin is about 17% fat.

2. Rinse oil-packed tuna in a strainer to remove extra oil. You can also buy tuna packed in water, although it may cost a little more.

3. Try broiling, baking or poaching fish and poultry, rather than frying.

4. Use seasonings like lemon juice, tomatoes, herbs, or wine, rather than such high-calorie and high-fat extras as butter and sour cream.

5. Use brown rice, potatoes, noodles, or other pasta in a seafood or poultry casserole to stretch your protein dollar.

     Introduce at least one fish or poultry dish to your family every week. Modify old favorites in line with these suggestions.
     Try an occasional meatless meal. Your family may complain at first, but a combination of grains and legumes provides plenty of protein without saturated fat.
