Dear Miss B
If you don't have a weight or cholesterol problem then you can lightly stir-fry vegetables in olive or canola oil (which are rich in 'good' fats like monounsaturated fatty acids). You can also add about 1 t of olive oil to spinach and some margarine that is high in mono- or polyunsaturated fats (check on the label) to your potatoes. One can use fats and oils in a normal balanced diet, but it is better to choose ones that are rich in the 'good' fats.
