Healthy Cooking Tips

It's not just the food we eat that affect our health, weight and energy but also the way we cook it.

Did you know?...................

 

- The higher the temperature and the longer the cooking time the faster the sugar is released from the carbohydrate food. This is why a baked potato has a higer glycemic load than a boiled potato. 

 

- Steaming preserves more nutrients than frying, baking or boiling.

 

- Microwaving can destroy the essential good fats found in oily fish.

 

- The best fats to stir fry with are coconut oil, olive oil or a small amount of real butter. These fats are more stable at high temperatures. Vegetable oils tend to burn very quickly at high temperatures and a burnt fat is a damaged fat and is ultimately bad for your health.
