Did you know that you can reduce your risk of high cholesterol and heart disease by replacing animal fats with vegetable oil?
Animal fat, like the fat in butter, contains saturated fats. These fats contribute to high cholesterol which can lead to heart disease and other conditions.
Replace butter with olive oil or another vegetable oil. You won't save any calories however. All fats contain nine calories per gram.

Did you know that textured vegetable protein has more protein than beef?
That's right. A one ounce serving of top round* has approximately 8. grams of protein. A quarter cup serving of textured vegetable protein (t.v.p.)** has 12 grams of protein. An additional benefit is that t.v.p. contains no saturated fat (the beef has over one gram of saturated fat).
