Making the Change to a Healthier Eating Plan and Setting Up the Healthy Kitchen
Hand in hand with a desire to eat more healthily is the need to put this plan into practice. It is not enough to start cooking more healthy meals, the cupboards need a spring clean and some things will need to be discarded, others added.
Here are some points to consider as you look through your store-cupboards. Are there any:
You may find that you want to discard some of these, donate them to charity or give them away.
Kitchen equipment too may need some looking at. Do you have a good big pot suitable for cooking hearty soups, making stocks, cooking rice and pasta? If not, they are available from many stores at reasonable prices. A non-stick pan and a wok are excellent additions as well as a steamer basket for vegetables, and a set of cast iron pans.
You might also want to look at a brush to apply oil, or a spray can of olive or canola oil to help you use less when frying foods. A wok needs a charn (a spade like turner to help you toss food around) and also a ring to let it sit firmly over a gas burner. You might want to buy a wok that has a long handle like a frypan as these are often easier to manipulate.
