Healthy Food that is Also Delicious!

Healthy food.  Everyone has heard from doctors, scientists, our family, and personal trainers that healthy food is the best diet you need to have.  Of course not everyone’s favorite food is healthy food, in fact most people in don’t like healthy food due the fact that they don’t find it tasteful nor appealing compared to the greasy non-healthy food they consumed every day.  Growing up I found that to be very true.  Everyone I saw around in school was overweight or obese due to their parents not giving them nutritional healthy food.  Years later, I came across these children who I grew up with, and 70% of them were obese and with some kind of disease such as diabetes or high blood pressure.  I now can state as a fact that the cause of their disease was their lifestyle and their poor nutrition. 

I came to a conclusion that people do not eat healthy food simply because they do not find it tasteful or appealing as compared to greasy fast food.  Here are some ways to help people eat healthy and tasteful at the same time. 

Sweet tomatoes can be used in meals for chopped cooked chicken in a pan with canola oil.  If adding vegetables to the chicken, preserve their colors by cooking them quickly once the chicken is almost ready.  The chicken can be cooked in lemon juice or citrus juice to give it an extra taste. 

 If you feel like salads but think they are too plain and boring, add some tomatoes, fruits, and fat free salad dressings to you salad.

If thinking about a fish, a healthy solution for cooking a fish meal is by adding basil and black pepper when frying in it in the pan.  Garlic is always a good extra condiment. 

When cooking steak, add swirly boiled pasta, mushroom and mushroom gravy on top of the steak to make is tasteful and delicious and appealing to your guests.  Cooked slices of round pineapple slices also make a good side food on the steak meal.

For a delicious soup, always think herbs.  Any soup whether it’s tomato soup, chicken soup, beef soup, potatoes soup always needs that extra herbal taste.  When making soup make sure to add herbal spices such as mint leaves, cloves, white or red onions to add taste to the soup and be healthy at the same time. 

Healthy cooking always consists of well cooked meat.  Any kind of meat should always be fully cooked to avoid any mad cow disease usually associated with meat not fully cooked. 
All this tips should contribute to making your meals delicious and tasteful at the same time as keeping the meal healthy to your body.  Always remember, good nutrition contributes to a longer life with less chances of disease!
