#4 Change The Preparation Method.
Foods that are baked are always lower in fat than foods that are fried. Allow the fat to drip away by cooking on a grill pan, or in the oven on wire racks resting on a baking sheet. Another great option is braising, where you cook foods in a liquid of some kind, usually flavorful stock. No added cooking oils are necessary, and the end product comes out tender and juicy.
