Healthy Cooking Tips

Listen up.  FRIED is a no-no! It’s not just deep-fried; don’t kid yourself…. that includes Crispy or Crisped, Pan-fried, Pan-seared and Seared.  All of these terms are restaurants trying to fool you into thinking that the food isn’t fried.  It is. Period. Restaurants like to fry foods because it’s fast to cook, easy to serve a lot of and serve it fast, because it covers up lower quality meats and fish and because that kind of fat is the easiest way to make food taste good.  Sad but true.

 

Bake it, Broil it, Grill it, Stir-fry it…in a wok only….don’t use a frying pan and think that’s the same thing…the oils are used and absorbed differently by the meats (the protein has to be cut into long thin strips to make it work…that’s not just to look pretty). Grill it. You can boil your eggs and beans but it makes anything else kind of dull. 

 

Spices and fresh or good quality dried herbs are your friend!!! They blast your taste-buds and let your mouth feel like it’s experienced a real meal NOT diet food (a horrible way to feel about your meal). Chillis also raise your metabolism for hours after eating them…..and we’ve all got to love that!

 

Anyone got a healthy cooking trick that they love and want to share?

    Use Pam instead of margarine and butter. This has helped me out a lot! No need for the extra fat,calories and salt.

    adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will share
