Diet Tips that Help You Eat Better
As difficult as this is to accept, you really have to be more careful about your diet when you grow older. Your body is no longer as well equipped to deal with junk and empty calories as it once was.
In fact, you find that you may still be gaining weight when you’ve already cleaned the contents of your refrigerator and replaced it with only the most essential forms of nutrients. While the ingredients may not be the problem, you could actually look into the tools you use in your kitchen.
For those who have decided to live a better lifestyle to enjoy old age better, find out which kitchen gadgets help make nutritious cooking a cinch for you.
Here are just a few to help you through your new goals and way of life:
1. Programmable Rice Cooker:
What makes this a worthwhile investment? If you’ve decided to go for whole grains, know that these can take as long as an hour to cook.
A programmable timer is so much more convenient because it lets you see it and then you can just forget about it until it’s actually time to eat.
2. Oil Mister:
Use less oil and save yourself from extra calories and fat. With this handy gadget, you can apply just a thin coat of whatever type of oil you choose to use.
In addition to spritzing to avoid foods from sticking, you can opt to bake your meals rather than deep fry.
3. Nonstick Grill Pan:
This pan allows for great flavor development with less fat. The oil simply drips into the pan’s grooves and you can use it as often as you want.
Just a tip to remember, don’t crowd the food. This steams it instead.
4. Digital Food Scale:
Get a true understanding of portion sizes with this tool. If you want to exactly know how big 2 or so ounces of chicken is, grab this scale.
If you have a limit to whatever food you eat, you will definitely get the accurate measurement this time.
5. Immersion Blender:
Blending together all the ingredients helps bring certain richness to the taste of the dishes without having to add cream.
This handy tool makes the task so much easier because you simply put the stick right in the bowl to mix. With the usual processor, you actually have to manually transfer the food.
6. Instant-Read Thermometer:
Lean meat’s lower fat content can make cooking tricky. A little too long in the over and something that was meant to be moist and juicy is now entirely too dry.
This takes away the usual guesswork because you can accurately tell when something is done.
7. Microplane Grater:
Adding small amounts of small flavors gives dishes a kick without the need to pile up on sugar, calories, and fat. Use this to grate spices, cheese, and even fruits.
When you’ve stocked your kitchen with all these helpful tools, you’ll notice that staying healthier is much less hard work. You have the help that you need, one that makes measuring and cooking a breeze.
