Health Tip: Go Easy on the Gravy

(HealthDay News) -- Gravy makes a savory addition to your favorite holiday foods, but it can pack a lot of unhealthy fat.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests how to cut the fat in your gravies and soups:

  • Use a spoon with a wide mouth to skim fat from meat and poultry juices.

  • When making soups, stews, broth and chili, refrigerate before serving and remove the fat that solidifies on top.

  • To speed up solidifying the fat, place a few ice cubes in a broth, soup or gravy and remove the hardened fat that accumulates near the ice.
