    When it is time for a GRS Ultra summertime cookout, sometime only a hot dog will hit the spot. Be sure to check out the newer varieties of hot dogs that are now available. Low fat, pure beef hot dogs can be a great choice that has significantly fewer calories and fat grams than regular, mixed meat hot dogs. These still pack at least 6 or 7 grams of fat per wiener, hardly low fat, but compared to 13-18 grams of fat in other varieties, it makes for a significant savings in fat consumption.

    Want to cook healthy tacos, spaghetti meat sauces, chili, and any other dish that calls for ground beef? Easy – drain away the fat. There are a lot of recipes that call for ground beef (or ground chicken or turkey for that matter). Some recipes state that you should brown the ground meat and then begin to add vegetables, liquids or seasonings at that point. Other recipes state you should brown the meat and then drain off the liquid fat that has rendered during the browning process before you add anything or proceed. Always follow the latter! By dumping the fat you do remove some of the flavor and texture but you are removing a lot of the fat! You can always make up for both taste and texture as your dish nears completion using spices, seasoning, reduced broths or stocks, etc.

    When I started researching this piece I found that much of what I thought I knew about fiber was wrong. I had thought of fiber much like tiny threads. Instead, I found that dietary fiber is certainly not that. Instead it is the indigestible part of plant food that pushes food through the digestive system. Good fruit sources of fiber include berries, plums, bananas, apples, and pears. Vegetables high in fiber include broccoli, onions, carrots, and potatoes.
