Fall-ing forward as we begin to change routines and add or subtract task to our schedules, let’s try to focus on Healthier eating habits. I know it’s a BIG challenge for a lot of us. We are so use to avoiding change unless we are guaranteed results. That’s called skepticism or if you’re a thinker, contempt prior to investigation. Only because we first consider what other people say, feel about or are doing in that situation. Not everything I cook is low fat or healthy but I’m developing better guidelines as I manage my weekly budget and food choices. All considered, lets say if we decided to prepare two to three dinners a night at home. This is how to start:
- We see what’s on sale that week at our favorite grocery store
- Make a food choice as to what to have those days and write it down
- Find a recipe or pull from your collection of favorites & at this point if you need to; alter the recipe to accomplish your goal of healthier and better eating
It’s wonderful how we can take just a few minutes of time to help ourselves with a guide. Take for instance my you tube video this week of Poached Salmon and Tabbouleh salad. There you can see a step by step guide to making both dishes as well as observe cutting and cooking techniques, and review the ingredients to purchase & create this dish at home. Each recipe is prepared with you in mind, to get you going in the kitchen. Check this out on youtube -and here you will find indoor and outdoor cooking tips to get you started on the right track as well as about 7 other recipes to have fun with! We always enjoy your comments or suggestions and hope you find CookingwithBernard a helpful tool. We update every Wednesday so check back for meal solutions to everyday cooking.
