Easy Tips on Healthy Home Cooking

February 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 122

If home cooking is still a challenge for you, learn few easy tips to make you a pro in healthy foods you cook right in your home. Believe me, home cooking is an easy and enjoyable process. All it takes is just a little planning done for your meals and all your creativity.

Tip #1: Store up easy recipes

That is what I like about home cooking. You really CAN find tons of easy recipes. Some of them take only 10 min to cook. You can find them for all your meals. Even a great dinner can be cooked in a very reasonable time, spent on your kitchen.

Of course, Internet is the best place to look for such recipes. However, just typing in the 'easy recipes' words might not prove useful, as you may get overwhelmed with the amount of information, you find. A good place to look for easy recipes is Pinterest. There people share their best hits.

Another good place to look for easy and quick recipes are blogs. There you can find real recipes. Of course, you may look in food magazines or cooking TV shows, but their recipes might be little too dressy and unrealistic for a real home kitchen food experience. In blogs, you find real 'cookable' recipes.

Tip #2: Experiment

Do not start planning your meals with a bunch of new recipes. Try them out first. Cook a small amount of food. You may want to cut down the amount of ingredients in those recipes by half and make smaller portions. This would do two things for you. For one, you would not waste too much food, in case you do not like the recipe. Plus, you would get a good chance to experiment with your recipe. In most cases, I change recipes, add some ingredients to them, or use the ones I can get more easily. This works well for me.

Tip #3: Plan your meals

Try to start with planning your meals just for one day. Write down a menu. Use well tried recipes. You may throw in just one or two new things into it to try them out, though. Try to plan meals around whole foods. They are much healthier, than refined ones.

Tip #4: Plan your grocery shopping

Now, when you know what you are going to cook, you can write down your shopping list. When you select your foods, try to shop for healthier ones, such as organic veggies or fruits, whole grains or low fat products. Then, follow you shopping list to the letter. Keep in mind that most of the unhealthy foods are well advertised. This makes them more enticing. Getting your shopping list would you to resist the temptation to buy unhealthy foods.

Hopefully, those easy tips on home cooking would help you to get new and positive cooking experience in your kitchen and to make healthier choices for your diet.
