Cooking and eating healthy is basically very easy if you know how to do it. The right choice of food and the type of preparation plays a crucial role.
Healthy eating doesn’t have to be expensive, time-consuming, or complicated. We have put together the 10 best tips for you to cook healthier (even as a muffle).
What does healthy cooking mean?
In general, it means that you prepare your food yourself with healthy, and above all, fresh and unprocessed ingredients. Just keep in mind:
the higher the processing wheel of an ingredient, the less exactly you know what’s inside. The greater the risk is that it contains unwanted or even unhealthy ingredients. These include preservatives, flavorings, and similar additives.
In other words, healthy cooking starts with healthy shopping. When shopping, make sure that the list of ingredients for the products you buy is as short as possible, preferably only contains one point, namely the food that is large on the package.
How can I cook healthier?
Shopping healthy is one thing. In addition to the right ingredients, the time invested plays a role. Unfortunately, the least of the healthy dishes are created by simply putting something in an oven or in the microwave and simply waiting for it to beep. But in just 10 minutes you can cook something fresh in a relatively uncomplicated manner. And the more you do this, the more experienced and therefore faster you will become.
It’s a bit like doing sports: it is a bit tedious at the beginning, but the more you get in, the easier it is for you. And at some point you just do it without thinking, even enjoy it and enjoy the result. Our 10 tips will surely help you get in and carry on!
10 tips to cook healthier straight away :
Regardless of whether you are a beginner or have been swinging your wooden spoon for a long time: With our tricks and tips there is certainly something exciting for you too:
1. Cook healthier thanks to healthy supplies :
If you get hungry again or come home starving in the evening, there is a yawning emptiness in the fridge. Anyone who now strolls to the next supermarket with a craving is guaranteed not to resort to healthy vegetables and low-fat meat. It is therefore important to have healthy supplies in the house at all times, as this will help you to resist unhealthy temptations. And you save yourself the fatal cravings at the same time.
You should therefore always have healthy basics such as brown rice, quinoa, couscous, canned tomatoes, kidney beans, chickpeas, white beans, corn or canned tuna in stock. Potatoes and sweet potatoes can also be stored well. In this way, colorful vegetable pans or salads can be prepared quickly in an “emergency”. The result is healthier than a frozen pizza and can be prepared at least as quickly.
