4. Use low-fat or fat-free milk.
Low fat, or fat free dairy milk products including fat-free yogurt and cottage cheese are a healthier and economical way to get a good source of high value protein, calcium, vitamin D, vitamin A, potassium and B vitamins.
5. Poach Fish.
Fish is a delicate food. Poaching it in water is a great way to keep fish moist and lower the sodium level in the seafood (providing you don’t add extra salt.) Keeping the water temperature of 160°F to 180°F (71°C to 82°C), protects the delicate flesh of fish retaining maximum flavor and moisture. The liquid should never be allowed to boil. Boiling causes flavor loss and toughens the fish.
6. Use Aromatics.
Aromatics include citrus fruits, herbs, spices, vegetables (like garlic, onions, shallots, peppers etc), vinegar or wine to enhance the flavor and fragrance of your food. Fruit pulps are also great to add flavor to your food.
