Healthy Cooking Tips

The Gateway to Lasting Education for
Women, Adults, and Children

LEWAC believes that being healthy requires eating healthy! We offer a number of ways to help you eat foods that taste good that are also good for you!

  • Recipe Makeovers -- Most of your favorite recipes can be easily changed to lower the fat, salt and sugar, and also increase fiber. These tips will show you how to change your own favorite recipes so they are healthier for you and your family.
  • Food Substitutions -- The key to cooking healthy meals is to use healthy substitutes that do not sacrifice taste.
  • Low-Fat Cooking Tips -- Changing how you cook foods can be as effective in making them healthier as how you prepare them.
