Better cooking tips

* For healthier baking, substitute Canola oil in recipes that call for margarine or butter. Canola oil contains no cholesterol and is Lower in saturated fats and higher in mono- and polyunsaturated fats than many other vegetable oils. Substituting it in baked goods can lower the total fat by 20 to 25 percent.

* When flavoring foods, use no more than three different herbs or spices in a single dish. The exception is Indian cooking, which employs up to 10 spices per dish.

* When cooking a dish containing both meat and vegetables, such as a stew, lower the fat content and increase the healthful phytochemicals by reducing the amount of meat by one third and increasing the amount of vegetables by one third.

* For a fresher flavor in frozen fish, thaw the fish in milk.

* Popcorn will stay fresher and more kernels will cook if it is stored in the freezer.
