10 Tips for a Healthy Meal

  • Instead of using whole eggs, use double the number of egg whites for a heart healthy dish

 

  • Halve the salt content in your recipes. Improve flavour by stepping up the garlic or onion content.

 

  • Onions can be an important source of antioxidants if cut ten minutes before being eaten.

 

  • Use whole wheat whenever your recipe calls for flour. Oatmeal, flax, bran, wheat germ and soy flour also works wonders.

 

  • Honey is sweeter than sugar. So you should use less honey when you use it as a substitute for sugar.

 

  • Herbs, vinegar, tomatoes and onions help reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

 

  • The brighter the colour of the vegetable, the more nutrients it will contain.

 

  • Always store cheese wrapped tightly in plastic. Air helps mold grow on cheese.

 

  • Red meat can be healthy and is a good source of protein if using lean cuts.

 

  • When buying canned tuna, fruit or other food, choose options that are preserved in water or their own juices rather than in oil.
