Tips  

“I grew up eating sausage and still love it, but since I’m watching my cholesterol, it’s not a good choice for me. This recipe made with a healthier turkey sausage satisfies my craving without the saturated fat.” Cindy L.

Becoming a food label reader and really keeping track of what you eat can make a difference. There are now many tasty lower-fat products. Instead of buying regular smoked sausage with 17 grams of fat per serving, you can get smoked turkey sausage with 3 grams of fat per serving.
