  3. Instead of all-purpose flour, use whole grain products in adding more nutrition in your meal. Using whole-wheat flour, bread and soy flour in biscuits, oatmeal in your baked muffins are a lot healthier than doing it otherwise. Look and prepare low fat recipe when baking biscuits and all-time favorite cakes, choosing applesauce will also give the much-loved taste but with less the fats.
