Cooking Guide and Tips

 

Are you thinking about what to cook for your meals? Are you struggling about how to make healthy foods? Most Americans struggle with the ingredients and amount of time required to prepare any meals at home, let alone healthy ones. As a result, more and more people are eating out more frequently. Could it be why Americans as a group are gaining weight?

 

By preparing meals at home, you have a better idea of the amount of salt, sugar and fat that you are taking in. You also have more control over your portion sizes. And most of all, by preparing meals at home, you can save a lot of money. We believe that you control the food, not the other way around!

 

For well-balanced meals, keep in mind to have a protein, a starch and two vegetables. Don't forget about texture and flavor when cooking. These are key components to a good meal. Texture and flavor should complement each other, not just taste the same. Also think about the color and balance of the foods when cooking. How attractive is a plate that has only brown items? How many days can you consistently eat chicken for every meal? Choose from a variety of options: beef, pork, poultry, lamb, veal, seafood, vegetables, pasta and vegetarian choices.

 

In this section, we provide effective cooking guide and healthy cooking tips for everyone.

 

Cook smart, eat healthy, live happier!
