Imagine a fisherman slowly but steadily reeling in the catch of the day. This is exactly how our feet automated by our noses would lead us into wherever food is. Have you ever stopped and wondered about how the kitchen table has become the most preferred spot to sit around for a cozy chat or how the kitchen has become the center of gathering in most of our homes? It is the aroma of that slow cooking meat sauce or the smell of freshly baked chicken potpies still sitting warm in the oven and nothing else. We love our food. Food is to be enjoyed too. So eat up and eat well. But what if all that eating is going to make us unwell? Here are few ways you could eat “well” and be “well” at the same time.
With the fast moving world along with its 5-second meals, we would only be allured into our kitchen out of hunger to the whiff of a frozen pizza that is defrosting in the microwave. Breakfast is all about crunchy cereals out of a box and fruit juice out of the carton. Our biggest complain is that home cooking takes time and that it could eat up a good chunk of our busy schedules. Yes, it is true but only 30 years ago! Have you taken a look at the latest kitchen equipment available? The nutri juicers and the magic bullets and the food processors that could whip up a storm and DIY bread machines are only a few of the fabulous gadgets around. You could make yourself a healthy yet tasty home cooked meal with that special touch in well under 20 minutes with this kind of gear hanging around our kitchens. However, you might need to give a bit of prior thought to your meal plans and have your store cupboard and fridge well stocked.
Eating well does not mean you eat tasteless food. You could still have that American burgers in Melbourne and have it still tasting smashingly good without the extra unhealthy calories. Let us face the truth. We do not have time to turn pages or to tweak recipes to make them healthy. But the good news is that there are plenty recipe ideas and menus available out there. And some one has done all the tweaking and even the test cooking for you. Click a few buttons and viola! You get a variety of chicken recipes that gives you quantities, the calories you will intake and depending where you live, you could even order and have those ingredients delivered to your door step.
Life style choices
We often complain that we are unhealthy because of the unhealthy food choices we make. How about the unhealthy life style choices we make? If you are not the kind to cook at home, you don’t have to settle for a greasy fast food joint. There are plenty of affordable and tasty restaurant eateries that have created menus taking to consideration your dietary choices. You could eat “well” if you can make smaller life style changes too. Walking for at least 30 minutes a day could keep you “well”.
