Planning for healthy eating
The diet that you follow plays an important role in shaping your overall health. The healthier your diet, the better you will be able to maintain your health and keep the risk of health problems at bay.
Need help in getting started with planning for healthy eating? The tips we’ve listed below can be handy:
1) Choose healthy cooking methods
Cooking methods such as deep-frying, grilling, and smoking make even the most healthy foods unhealthy. Choose cooking in microwave over frying; it’s one of the healthiest cooking options as the cooking time is short which minimizes the loss of nutrients. Bring home a Kutchina microwave oven to prepare healthy recipes in no time. Our microwave ovens pack several innovative features such as cooking presets, convection, and LED display which eases healthy meal preparation.

2) Use healthy cooking oils
Oils are the basic ingredients for most recipes; the type of cooking oils you use affects/alters the nutritional value of the recipes you prepare. As part of planning for healthy eating, swap unhealthy cooking oils for healthy alternatives such as extra virgin olive oil, sesame oil, and canola oil.
3) Try new healthy recipes
It can be tempting to go back to unhealthy recipes when you get bored with the same recipes you’ve been preparing. Fight the cravings by trying new healthy recipes every once in a while. You can also make your favorite recipes healthier by choosing organic/wholesome ingredients over packaged and processed ones. Trying new healthy recipes help you add more flavors to your healthy diet regimen; you might discover your new favorites as well.
4) Avoid over-purchasing food
When you buy more groceries than you need, madness sets in. The sight of piles of food lying in your refrigerator can discourage you from preparing healthy recipes. To avoid this, shop groceries in the right amount. Keep proper track of your grocery stock; make sure to have a thorough look at your food pantry before preparing your grocery shopping list.
5) Properly store fresh produce as soon as you get them home
After you are done shopping grocery, it’s important to stock them properly to keep them fresh and nutritious. Take out some time to store your recent buys in proper ways such as washing lettuce before refrigerating them, sealing herbs and spices in zip seal bags, and roasting nuts and storing them in airtight containers.
6) Don’t skip breakfast
Eating a healthy breakfast regularly is an important part of healthy eating. A simple and healthy breakfast formula is to pair carbohydrates with protein. Carbs fuel your body with the energy you need to start the day while protein keeps you full and fight frequent hunger pangs. Include carb-rich food items such as oatmeal, cereal, and wholegrain bread in your breakfast. Eggs, chickpeas, and bananas are good protein-rich breakfast food choices.
