10 Secrets to Cooking Healthier

Looking to eat healthier? Let our 10 principles of healthy cooking help get you started.

If your eating habits are anything like those of most Americans and you are looking for the simplest advice possible we would tell you to eat more vegetables, fruits and whole grains and less of just about everything else.Everything else is the not so healthy cooking we all do around holidays.
But if you’re ready for just a bit more guidance, .

1. Use Smart Fats

Not all fat is bad. Opt for unsaturated (e.g., olive oil) over saturated fats such as butter. But still use them in moderation because all fats are loaded with calories.           I have tried different oils such conola oil.It does not change the taste but it has less saturated fat.to me this is a start to healthy cooking.

Quinoa

2. Go Unrefined

Pick whole grains over refined grains. Whole grains like brown rice and bulgur have their bran intact and thus have more fiber, B vitamins, magnesium, zinc and other nutrients.

3. Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

Most people don’t get enough! Aim for 4 to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Pick produce in a variety of colors to get a range of antioxidants and vitamins. A serving size is 1/2 to 1 cup depending on the fruit or vegetable.Always use fresh vegetables whenever possible when trying to cook healthy.

4. It’s Not All About the Meat

Meat is a great source of protein but it’s also a big source of saturated fat in many people’s diets. So eat small amounts of lean meat, fish and poultry. Fill up the rest of your plate with healthy vegetables and whole grains.When shopping for meats always find the leanest cuts of meat possible.

5. Choose Low-Fat Dairy

Dairy products like milk, sour cream and yogurt are a good source of calcium. Replacing whole-milk dairy products with low-fat or nonfat is an easy way to cut saturated fat in your diet.After changing to low fat or 2% milk try cutting your portions.

6. Keep Portions Reasonable

Even though we would all like a magic bullet for weight control, it really boils down to calories. One of the easiest ways to manage calorie intake is by eating healthy portions.Everyone needs to eat enough not to fill hungry 30 minutes after finishing a meal.

7. Use Sweeteners Judiciously

Sugars of any kind, whether corn syrup, white sugar, brown sugar, honey or maple syrup, add significant calories without any nutritive value.There are several different e sweetners on the market which will help with your calorie count.

 

8. Keep an Eye on Sodium

Whether you haven high blood pressure or not, it’s wise to watch your sodium intake. The USDA’s dietary guidelines for Americans recommend consuming less than 2,300 mg (about 1 teaspoon salt) daily.You can cook healthy by using a salt subsutiate or salt sence to off set sodium intake

9. Go For the Flavor

Enhance food with bold flavors from healthy ingredients like fresh herbs, spices and citrus. When your food has great flavor, there’s no reason to feel deprived.Try different flavors or spieces on food that you enjoy so as to not make food bland.

10. Be Mindful and Enjoy

Make conscious food decisions rather than grabbing for what is most convenient. Make sure it is something delicious and savor it. When you enjoy what you eat, you feel satisfied.Eat a reasonable perportion and do not gorge yourself
