I’m short on time and use a lot of packaged mixes in cooking. Is there any way to make these more healthful?

Text Size:

Yes. You can lighten up packaged mixes by trying lower-fat options in preparation. For example, use half of the oil called for in packaged pasta salad mixes, or try using low-fat or skim milk when making instant pudding. For packaged rice dishes and similar products, use only half the flavoring packet to cut down on sodium.
