Eating healthy at the state fair

October 9, 2012

By JAY REED

You might need to use your imagination a little bit — you might need to think outside the box — but that’s not always a bad thing. Neither is lunch at the fair.

Try to lighten up your cooking

— Go very light on the cheese. Opt for small amounts of flavorful cheeses like Parmesan or Romano. Use fat-free ricotta in place of regular ricotta cheese.

Pasta, bread, pizza crusts, peanut butter, fried foods, beef, even certain types of chips — these are all foods that...
