For many of us, though, kitchen skills have become something to watch on the food network or admire at the restaurant of a Top Chef. And most certainly, weeknight cooking can be a chore in light of our busy schedules. However, there is no doubt that food purchased outside the home, whether fast food, packaged convenience foods, or even fine dining, will contain more calories, fat, sodium and sugar than we need on a regular basis.
There is room in most people's diets for all of the above, just not everyday or in super sized quantities. So, how to replicate the convenience of carry out and packaged, processed foods without the health (and, sometimes, budgetary) consequences?
Maybe you'd also like your grown and almost grown kids to learn the fundamentals so that they, too, can prepare healthy and delicious food at home more efficiently and inexpensively. Or, maybe, you have parents who suddenly need to change a lifelong carry-out habit for health reasons. If your loved ones need a little hand holding in the kitchen, I can help them too.
Cooking doesn't have to be stressful and unpleasant. By learning some new cooking and planning techniques, you can take control and be in charge of what goes into your body, have some fun and, finally, enjoy nutritious and delicious food with your family and friends.
