Today's Fitness Tip: Vegetarian Meals - Low fat?

Are vegetarian meals low in fat? Not always. Some vegetarian meals
contain high fat cheeses or sauces. Others may be fried or contain
unhealthy fats such as coconut or palm oil. Some contain healthy fats
(including many vegetable oils, nuts, seeds and avocado). While good
for you in moderation, healthy fats can still provide extra, unneeded
calories. When choosing a vegetarian entrée, consider asking about the
ingredients and method of preparation.
