I have heard many bad things about oils (not only health but also bad for nature and animals).
So I want to use them as less as possible. How can I do that? How do you prepare foods?
Tips are welcome!

Well there are plant-based oils. The healthiest is olive oil, though extra-virgin version is not meant to be heated, but only added to served food due to its valuable properties diminished by heating and its price.

Steaming is an option for highest nutrient retention in food.

I use the above the most, but some of other options are:
- boiling
- adding water to 'traditional pan'
- wok (pan)
Food that is fried using a small amount of oil in the bottom of a pan; Food may be cooked with dry heat in an enclosed pan

I've heard using just water or vegetable broth works.

Hello. Using water in replace of oil works great. :)
