Pre-prepared food

 
Pre-prepared food

It doesn’t matter whether they’re reduced fat or not, some pre-prepared foods are far too rich to be healthy. You have to read the labels carefully to be sure. Our dietitian Natalie advises:  

Carbohydrates: Avoid pasta in sauce, flavored rice and potatoes in sauce, and make sure whetever you buy contains less than 15g fat per portion.  
Vegetables: If there’s more than 5g fat per 100g, too much fat has been added.
Meat and fish: Make sure that the difference between the amount of protein and fat is no greater than 1%.
Ready meals: Paella, chili con carne, lasagne and the like shouldn’t contain more than 15g fat per person (5g per 100g). If you’re buying family-sized portions, don’t forget to work out how much of it you’ll actually be eating yourself.
