3. Clay pots (the traditional ones), glass or ceramic cookware is healthy.


4. Use low heat while cooking your meals even if you make fries so the formation of trans fats is avoided and the nutritional values are preserved.

5. Instead of using margarine, sunflower oil and canola oil, use natural stuff (homegrown oils) like butter oil and olive oil (try to use extra virgin). Butter oil is known for not being converted into trans fat easily.

6. Be careful not to burn the food while cooking fries or barbecue. Do not eat the burnt parts of the food.

8. Always keep the food refrigerated. If the food has started to mold, do not ever think of eating it.
