(NAPSA) - The right foods can help keep you from joining the millions of
Apple Pork Chops
Americans the Health Department estimates are overweight. You don't even have to sacrifice flavor to keep trim.

FDA nutritional experts recommend that trans fat and saturated fat, combined, should `e limited to no more than 10 percent of daily calories.

Although the labeling mandate kicks in Jan. 1, 2006, some food manufacturers, such as Mrs. Dash Seasoning Blends, have begun listing trans fats on their labels already. Not only are all 12 salt-free blends of Mrs. Dash seasonings trans-fat-free, but on the Mrs. Dash recipe Web site (, grams of trans fats are listed for each recipe in the interactive database. A full 91 percent of the recipes are trans-fat-free.

To start incorporating non-trans-fat recipes into the daily diet, try Mrs. Dash Apple Pork Chops tonight.
