Default What are some ways to cook food so it tastes good and is good for you ?

Hi,

I eat WAY too much fried food & am afraid it's gonna do some serious damage in the long run. So I want to find a healthy alternative. But I still want to enjoy the food I eat. Is there a different way to cook it? Can I buy it from the store? Also, what's a healthy dessert & beverage to go with this meal?

Regards

Join the club.

For frying eggs, I use a little oil in a stainless steel skillet with a
lid. When the skillet get hot, in goes the egg(s), then add a little water
and cover. After a couple of minutes the eggs has a nice fried poached like
texture to it. No need to flip the eggs, the steam will cook the top of the
eggs also and the eggs does not stick and slides right out of skillet onto
the plate.

Served with a glass of cold skim milk.

I find beverages is where most of my calorie intake is. Watered down fruit
juices or just go with water and skim milk. But then I am still fat. The
gym helps also.

The problem with frying is the oil. Do you fry potatoes? Try baking
them. I make potato chips by baking the slices on a rack until they
brown. Eggs? You can boil them, poach them, shirr them, as well as
fried. If you don't want to fry hamburgers, you can broil them or make
meatloaf.

I'm not big on healthy food. Mostly, I want what I eat to be dead.
When it comes to dessert, though, live fruits are excellent. There are
wonderful melons, peaches (and other drupes), as well as grapes and
berries this time of year. You can have them plain or cut up in yogurt
or sour cream.

Drinks? Well, water comes first. Soda is too sweet for my taste most
of the time.

Anyhow, be specific about the foods you want to use and you can get
more specific responses.

Meat loaf retains more fat than any other method... chili/meat sauces
retain the least fat because it can virtually all be skimmed off.

Anybody use the pan I saw in the Chef's catalog yesterday? A
corrugated, perforated [enameled?] steel baking sheet to bake 'french
fries'-
http://www.chefscatalog.com/product/...ing-sheet.aspx

I'm not a big french fry eater-- but I think it might work well for
roasting green beans & carrot sticks.

I think you'll need to dip them in oil first. Might as well save your
money and use a regular baking sheet.

The trouble with a regular baking sheet or silicone mat is that the
two sides don't get done evenly. I find that a rack is good for most
foods. Even if it's wiped with a little oil, there;s not much contact
area.

Boil or poach everything; meatloaf, form it and put it in a pan of water
and
cook then drain off the water and fat. Hamburger, form the patty, drop in
pan with water and poach. Poach boneless skinless chicken breasts. All
vegetables should be boiled until limp, then drained and eaten.

Have fruit smoothies for beverage; a 16 ounce all-fruit smoothie with the
meal; for dessert carrot cake or oatmeal cookies - good for eyes and
heart.

I like the deep brown crispiness that contact with the pan gives and
will turn them as many times as necessary to get them browned all
over. The perforated pan just won't do it.
