Cooking a healthy meal begins with one making the right food choices. The best of meals is comprised of organic natural foods and not the processed foods that people currently are so addicted to eating. The following are a couple of suggestions on how to make your meals a bit healthier.
Choose healthy substitutes. Learn to substitute unhealthy foods to health ones. For example if you are a die-hard fan of pizza, you can always whip up a healthier version of this Italian delicacy by using whole-grain dough for the crust and low fat cheese for the topping. Though all natural foods are good for you, but if you are trying to lose some weight, you could try cutting back on saturated fat like for example you could swap whole milk for skim milk and butter for olive oil. Additionally you could choose lean cuts of animal protein instead of the ones that are packed with fat. These tiny substitutions can save you a lot of calories!
Cook in bulk. In order to stick to a healthy eating pattern, make it a habit to cook several portions of each meal and freeze of the excess for later use. This way your fridge is stocked up with healthy foods and helps you to avoid munching on junk instead.
