Use cream strategically
Consider using cream as just an occasional indulgence.
Pay particular attention to the amount of saturated fat. Compare products; try to find one that is moderate in saturated fats, and that also meets your cooking requirements.
We now know that carbohydrates are important to the health of your heart. These come from the fruits, starches, and sweeteners that accompany the fats in cooking, so take account of the balance of all the ingredients you are using when you plan your menu. Sometimes only a little fat is required to enhance flavor.
