eHealthPath.com, a new resource for online cooking classes, nutrition lessons and healthy lifestyle guidelines, has announced the release of a new set of 54 Mix & Match Meal Cards to help users understand the secrets of making foods taste great by learning how to finesse the elements of flavor.
The Mix & Match Meal Cards are part of the eHealthPath Healthy Cooking Essentials Series program that provides everything viewers need to begin cooking healthier, eating better and feeling lighter without sacrificing flavor, variety and mealtime satisfaction. The meal cards are used to learn how to pair foods with a variety of ingredients, and how to prepare them.

- Protein. Shrimp, eggs, pork chops, snapper, short ribs, chicken, pork shoulder, tilapia, rib eye, cod, tenderloin, tofu, beef ribs, salmon, turkey, chuck roast and lamb shoulder.

The Mix & Match Meal Cards provide added information such as cooking methods best used, nutrition summaries, flavor affinities (fruity, floral, herbal, spicy, nutty, meaty, etc.), suggested flavor combinations and more. Cards are designed to help anyone learning to cook—or learning to cook better—discover the intricacies of food and flavor combinations that make each meal remarkable.
