Simple ways to cook healthier
Capture the flavor and retain the nutrients in foods without adding excessive amounts of fat or salt with these tips: 1. Use herbs and spices instead of salt. 2. When steaming food, use a flavorful liquid or add seasonings to the water to enhance the flavor. 3. Stir-fry a meal, since you need only a small amount of oil or cooking spray for this cooking method.
