Water Chestnuts Are Fat Free And Have No Cholesterol



Water Chestnuts are crisp and low in calories but are a great source of fiber to lower cholesterol. Add to salads, into a tuna salad or chicken salad, fruit salad or quarter into Brown Rice with chopped onions to reduce fat content of meals. They are free of any cholesterol and are almost fat-free and contain potassium. Make a stir-fry with them.
1/2 cup of water chestnuts contains only 0.1 g fat.
