How To Cook Healthy Recipes is a book designed for people who want to take advantage of the many health benefits of home-cooked me...als, but who aren't comfortable enough in the kitchen to pull it off. Many of us lead busy lives, and at the end of the day the temptation to save time by eating prepared foods can be overwhelming. Unfortunately, those prepared foods from restaurants as well as grocery stores are more than likely loaded down with undesirable food additives. Remember that food additives--like artificial colors and flavorings, texture enhancers, and stabilizers--are put into foods not for "food" reasons, but for business reasons. They're designed to make food look more attractive, or last longer on the shelf. These are substances that your body isn't made to handle and doesn't know what to with, and the more you rely on food made by other people, the more likely it is that these undesirable substances are building up in your body on a daily basis. The only way to break this cycle is to take the time to learn to cook meals in your own home. If you can get comfortable in the kitchen making delicious and healthy meals that don't take too long to prepare, you can get into the routine of eating more wholesome food on a regular basis, which means protecting your body from all of those industrial food additives that go along with prepared, pre-seasoned, and packaged foods. How To Cook Healthy Recipes will teach you how to do just that. You'll get an introduction to the basics of the kitchen, including the following information:Tools you'll need to be able to work efficiently as well as safelyTechniques you'll use to make your mealsMore than two dozen simple recipes (with tips on how to tweak them)Tips on experimenting with new spices and flavorsHow to make your own stock (and what kind to buy if you don't want to make it)Which additives and ingredients to avoid when cookingHow to change any recipe to minimize your food additive intake If you're committed to being as healthy as possible, you need to learn to cook your own meals.

Firing up your Charcoal Cooking on the Grill Techniques Other Methods and Substitutes for Tandoori Cooking Cooking Times Grilling and Roasting Preparing Mincemeat Kebabs Barbecued Gammon Rashers and Pineapple Barbecued Sausages Chicken with Honey Conclusion Author Bio Introduction Nobody in the world today can take the credit for being the first civilization where their ancestors first thought up the technique of grilling and barbecue cooking. It is certain that this technique spread all over the world, simultaneously, when men began to look for more and easier ways in which they could cook the meat they had hunted throughout the day. All they had to do is make a fire in their camp and roast the pieces of meat on pieces of charcoal. Then one day a man must have really gotten impatient with just waiting for a couple of pieces to cook to either perfection or to charred consistency, and skewered some more pieces on a bamboo skewer or thin piece of metal and, lo and behold, barbecue cookery came into existence. read more
