- Learn some quick, good-for-you recipes. “People tell me they have no time to cook. I tell them thats rubbish,” Oliver says. You can make a low-fat pasta sauce in the time it takes for the noodles to cook. Try our Lemon Asparagus Pasta.
- Shop properly. Dodge the processed food and go for fresh vegetables. Make a satisfying salad with different lettuces, and add crunch with a radish or carrot.
- Make your own dressing. Combine three parts good-quality olive oil with one part acid (try lemon juice or red wine vinegar), and add a little salt and pepper; shake mixture in a jar. Voilaa tasty way to jazz up veggies and get some heart-friendly monounsaturated fats, too.
