The Key To Healthy Cooking

  2. 2. The Key To Healthy Cooking Healthy cooking does not mean that you have to pay money for a gourmet chef or expensive cooking utensils or even expensive cookbooks. Making sure you are cooking healthy does not even mean cutting out the foods you love. Many foods are inherently healthy; it is simply the ways that they are prepared that make them unhealthy.
  3. 3. Healthy Food Central Healthy cooking means that you can eat the food you love without feeling like you are breaking your diet or ruining your health. Healthy cooking is something you can easily do at home without even finding a specific healthy cooking recipe. Below are some tips to healthy cooking that can help you turn your kitchen into a healthy food central.
  4. 4. Methods For Healthy Cooking Contrary to what you may believe, all cooking methods are not created equal! Something can be filled with essential vitamins and nutrients prior to cooking, but when it is cooked improperly, all of those essential nutrients are gone. So now the question is how to cook the food deliciously yet retain all of the essential vitamins and nutrients. There are many ways to prepare your favorite food healthily. These methods for healthy cooking will help to retain the natural nutrients and flavor of the food and not add unhealthy salt and fat to the meal.
  5. 5. Traditional Asian Stir-fry One way to prepare your food in a healthy manor is the traditional Asian stir-fry. With Asian stir-fry you quickly cook small pieces of food in a large wok or non-stick frying pan. Since you are constantly tossing the food, you only need a small amount of cooking spray (if using a wok), and the non-stick surface of the frying pan should be sufficient if you chose to use a frying pan.
  6. 6. No Need To Disguise The Taste With Extra Fats And Salt This method works wonderfully for healthy cooking when you are preparing vegetables, small pieces of meat, rice or noodles. Often time vegetables lose their natural nutrients when cooked American style with butter and salt. It seems as though we constantly try to cover up the real taste of the vegetable. When it is cooked properly, there is no need to disguise the taste with extra fats and salt!
  7. 7. Tip To Cook Your Meat Another healthy cooking tip is to cook your meat using a roasting pan. With a roasting pan, the fat drips off of the food while cooking, instead of the piece of meat sitting in its fat and juices. If you want to keep the meat flavorful, try basting it with something different than its own drippings. Use fat-free liquids like wine or lemon juice.
