CookingSchools.com, an online directory of culinary schools, offers three tips on how to improve healthy cooking skills.
According to a February 6th article posted on Frugal Family Favorites titled “5 Quick Cooking Tips for Healthy Meals,” eating high quality, low calorie meals is important to maintaining a happy and healthy lifestyle. However, sometimes it may be hard for people to cook healthy meals, especially if they are inexperienced.
Andrew Girard, a representative for CookingSchools.com, offers advice to beginner cooks and people who want to eat healthier. “Even the most inexperienced chef can cook healthy,” he says. “While it may be easier to pop a premade meal into a microwave, it’s typically not that healthy. The best way to maintain a healthy lifestyle is to cook. Cooking light promotes using simple, fresh ingredients and less fatty or sugary products. By following these three tips, you can ensure that you cook healthy and stay healthy.” While the article provides five ways to improve healthy cooking skills, Girard discusses the three most important tips.
1. Plan meals in advance. “By planning in advance, you can prepare your vegetables and other ingredients all at once,” Girard says. “This saves time and saves you from wasting vegetables and other important ingredients.”
2. Make meals from scratch. “Not only do homemade meals taste better, but they are generally less expensive,” he says. “By making your meal from scratch, you save money at the grocery store while eliminating preservatives and other negative ingredients abundant in pre-packaged foods.”
3. Cook a few meals at a time. “Cooking healthy takes a little more time to prepare,” he says. “If you cook a few meals at once, you can save time later by simply reheating your meals. Foods like soup and salads are easy to heat up or prepare quickly if made in advance.”
For couples or individuals who want to learn more about cooking and the culinary arts, Girard suggests taking a cooking class. “The easiest way to improve your healthy cooking skills is by going to culinary school. CookingSchools.com is the easiest way to find culinary schools that best fit your needs.”
