    Start healthier cooking

    If you love to eat fried food, or just enjoy a nice meal cocked with lots of oils and fats, you seriously need to make some changes for your new year. Replace hydrogenated oils with healthier oils such as olive and canola oil. Also, prepare your food in a healthier way. Frying adds lot of oil and fat to your plate, so it is better to broil and bake your food. Image source : Getty
