These days, we tend to take care of our health in many ways, and healthy eating is one of them. This health awareness has given rise to improved and often different cooking methods and recipes because food is not just an energy source; it is also something that brings us immense joy. Healthy cooking and healthy eating help us stay away from health issues.
What is a Healthy Meal? It usually means one that meets our daily needs for essential nutrients. A healthy meal can be prepared by healthy cooking methods such as grilling, breeze, microwave oven, baking or steaming. And also by using organic ingredients when you can. All supermarkets stock organic food today, so accessibility should not be a problem.

Swap cashews for dairy in cream sauce
Making a tasty sauce with cashews is simple. Put some cashew nuts and a little water in your blender and you have a smooth full cream sauce so versatile that you can taste it with just about anything.
If it is tasty that you like, use onions and garlic to jazz up the sauce. If you are looking for something that can satisfy your sweet tooth, simply add it with agave and vanilla.
And as we all know, cashews are goodies filled with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, so good for us. They are also rich in magnesium and lower in fat compared to other nuts. So cashews promote healthy joints and bones. Isn’t that a bonus apart from tasty food?
Under vinegar, put vinegar in to cut calories
Ever thought of replacing eggs with vinegar while baking cakes? It certainly sounds strange, but it’s a good choice. Your cakes will come out moist and fluffy because vinegar binds the cakes better than eggs. Vinegar can also control high blood sugar and insulin resistance as well as decrease appetite. And if you worry that your cakes will taste like wine bakery, put that doubt to rest. You absolutely cannot tell.
Here’s another excellent bake hack. Replace the butter with an avocado. Just use a little more of the wet ingredients to balance everything.
Dark chocolate is delicious!
If you are a chocoholic like me, you will kill at the moment. For a snack, ever wondered that dark chocolate might be better for your health than sweet milk chocolate or white chocolate? Yes it is true. Dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants and good for your heart. So the next time you want to be fooled by milk chocolate sandie, you get a pure decadent and sinful dark chocolate. You will be glad you did.
In cooking, use dark chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate chips. If you want to make sure your dark chocolate is vegan, just check the label to see if they contain whey or milk solids. You can even put some chips or some dark chocolate in your morning smoothie. It will give you a brilliant antioxidant boost in a delicious way!
