The Healthiest Ways to Cook Meat
Chicken is one the most popular meats in the UK, and there are many ways to cook it – but what are the healthiest ways to cook the bird? Firstly, we will want to take a hint from the potato and avoid frying. Spicy fried chicken is extremely tasty but it absorbs a large amount of oil and that's a big no for everyday eating. Baking is a great way to recreate this tasty dish - and why not serve it on a bed of mixed salad to get some extra vitamins and nutrients into your body? If you are cooking for a few of your friends, then a spicy chicken salad is a great treat, perfect for casual dinners whilst binging on the latest instalment on Netflix.
Dependent on which cuts you buy, meats like beef and pork can be lean or high in fat. If you are feeling a little more creative in the kitchen, why not try cutting the beef or pork into cubes and marinating them in some garlic, ginger and soy sauce? Then, after they have soaked up the delicious marinade, add them alongside some peppers to skewers and set them under the grill. Any excess fats will drain out of the meat but the marinade will keep the meat moist and tasty!
There is no need to get overwhelmed with foods you can’t pronounce while trying to live a healthier lifestyle. If you use the basic cooking techniques above, you can eat everyday foods and remain healthy. The healthiest way to cook can often also be the most delicious. The key to feeling good and living healthily is to be prepared, and opt for a balanced lifestyle with lots of whole foods, regular exercise and plenty of water.
