Simple and Delicious Cooking with 3 Ingredients or Less

The concept of creating meals that are both simple and delicious presents a challenge for families of today. Simple meals sometimes resonate as one or two ingredients thrown haphazardly together. Delicious seems to fall by the wayside. This does not have to be the case, however, for today's busy families. Combining simple and delicious is as easy as one, two, three - three ingredients, that is.

Where to Begin

Just about every family has one individual with, well let's say, individual tastes - in other words; picky. It is important to begin your simple and delicious cooking with a three ingredients or less plan with something your pickiest of eaters will enjoy, as well. The most basic place to start is in evaluating your family members' desires and tastes. While you do not want to appear as a full-service restaurant, you do want to present meals that will have "something for everybody" on the menu.

Curb Your Cravings to Live More Healthfully

Food cravings, we've all experienced them. Whether it's an overwhelming need for a sweet treat, a yearning for something salty or the desire to have a pizza loaded with gooey cheese, food cravings are part of our lives.

Most of us know that sugary snacks and over-indulgence in alcohol isn't good for our health. There have been dozens of studies showing the effects of these types of foods on our bodies. So why then, if we know the harmful effects, do we still crave these and other foods?

There are many reasons that cause us to crave certain foods. Food cravings are unlike physical hunger, which develops over time. Cravings come out of the blue and can strike you quickly. They can be triggered by many things like stress, boredom, emotions or just the scent or sight of certain foods.

That's only the tip of the alarming statistics.

Easy, Healthy Cooking For Busy People

Healthy Cooking Doesn't Need To Be Complicated

One of the biggest reasons people give for not eating healthy is that they're too busy. Eating healthy is complicated, right? It takes a lot of time to shop for and prepare. It's expensive too. …at least that's what they say. The truth is that eating healthy is just as easy, and maybe easier, than eating unhealthy food. And depending on how you shop, eating healthy can save you some money. It doesn't have to be complicated.

Think about this…
You can waste 10-15 minutes in drive through or take out line to pay upwards of $7 for a burger, fries and a drink. You can wait 30 minutes to an hour for a $15-20 pizza. The next time you're hungry, you spend that same amount of time and money to eat out again. Alternately, you could cook one healthy dish for about the same cost as that pizza and you can get up to 4 meals from it.

Simple and Delicious Flourless Baking

Many people have gone flourless for specific health reasons. Some do so because they think the gluten in flour aggravates other medical conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis or asthma. Others believe avoiding flour makes them feel better.

Celiac disease is one of the main reasons for going flourless. It is one of the most common autoimmune diseases. In fact, in the last 50 years, one in 133 people have been diagnosed with the disease. Another reason for eliminating flour in your baking is to reduce carbohydrates. Flour is high in carbs.

Removing flour from your diet can improve your health. Going with an all-natural diet like the Paleo Diet, can help free the body from chronic diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, many types of Cancer...

Fat's Not the Bad Guy: Your Guide to Healthy Oils and Fats

Get ready. You are about to see why oils and fats are a healthy part of your diet. In fact, in spite of common advice to the contrary, you might be surprised to learn that low fat eating isn't as healthy as experts once thought.

Recent studies have found you shouldn't eliminate fat from your diet. Some fats have been proven to promote good health. In fact, some food eating styles, like the low carb diet, allow you to eat high fat foods like avocados and red meat. Imagine being able to eat butter, bacon and cheese again. Of course, you still have to eat these fatty foods in moderation. You probably shouldn't eat a pound of bacon for breakfast every day, though.

Most people have heard of olive oil's health benefits, but there are many other oils and fats that can benefit you as well.

The Healthy Fats Recipe Book

Did you know that coconut oil has benefits in it that could only be found in mother's milk? That's right, the medium chain fatty acids, like Lauric Acid, in coconut oil most resemble those found in breast milk. They are the most easily digestible fats known to humans and carry a lot of benefits such as boosting immunity, reducing the risks associated with heart disease and improved energy.

That's why you want to avoid cutting healthy fats out of your diet. A diet comprised of 30 percent of your calories in healthy fats is healthy, beneficial and what's more, you'll even lose weight. You'll lose weight because you'll be more satisfied with your meals, stay full longer, and avoid eating empty calories.

You can enjoy delicious food that is satisfying by not cutting all fats. The true way to health is to cut out only unhealthy fats, like Trans fats found in margarine and vegetable shortenings. Then add in healthy fats and you'll see a huge difference in your health. Tread lightly with the saturated fats like those found in red meat, whole milk, and cheese, and freely enjoy the healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats found in peanut oil, olive oil, flax seeds, walnuts, and fish like salmon.

Healthy, Low Carb Living

Making a change in your eating habits to lose weight, become more healthy, and live a better life is a good decision. If you've chosen to use a low carbohydrate diet to make those goals a reality, then you've picked the easiest, most fulfilling, and effective solution. A healthy low carb diet can help reverse type 2 diabetes, build muscle, and promote fat burning while keeping you from suffering from deprivation and hunger.

What are Carbohydrates?

Scientifically, a carbohydrate is one of the four classes, and the most abundant of bimolecular compounds consisting of carbohydrates, proteins, nucleotides and lipids. Carbohydrates transport energy through the blood to the cells. They play an important part in life for all living creatures.

Even when you eat a low carb diet, it's important to understand the difference between good carbs and bad carbs. Good carbs come in the form of plant matter such as vegetables, legumes, low sugar fruit and 100 percent, high-fiber whole grains. Bad carbs come in the form of white sugar, some grains like white bread, and high sugar fruits.

Easy and Healthy Thanksgiving Recipes

The smells of turkey, pumpkin pie and an array of vegetable casseroles fill the air. The traditional foods for this American holiday includes heavy and often unhealthy, versions of pumpkin pie, cornbread stuffing, green bean casserole, and mashed potatoes and gravy.

Ketogenic Diet for Weight Loss Made Simple

Did you know the standard American diet (SAD) contains 45-65% of calories from carbohydrate rich food? That's why there is an epidemic of obesity and health-related illnesses. Are you guilty of choosing to eat a diet high in carbohydrates? Or are you ready to try something different?

The Ketogenic diet or Keto diet is a high fat, low carb way of eating. It allows for small amounts of proteins, natural fats like coconut oil or butter and vegetables. It enforces a 4:1 ratio of fats to proteins and carbohydrates.

Foods high in fat like nuts, coconut milk, and butter are encouraged. The diet forbids the consumption of pasta, bread, sugar, and grains. This results in the ketones replacing glucose as fuel. This fat metabolism reduces the systemic inflammation that can cause epilepsy and other diseases. It's also, what encourages the healthy weight loss process.

Going Gluten-free: A New Trend or a Smart Choice?

Not long ago, the term "gluten-free" was thought to only be for those who suffered serious health issues in regard to gluten intolerances. Today, however, many individuals are choosing to live a gluten-free life.

There are many reasons people will opt for a gluten-free diet. Some are more obvious than others and include:

 

  •  Celiac disease

  •  Gluten intolerance

  •  Wheat allergies

  •  Inflammatory processes

  •  Personal choice

More Organics in Your Life, No Matter Your Budget

When hearing the phrase "living more organically", many people picture a modern day homesteader building their own home from recycled materials, living without electricity, growing their own food free of pesticides and chemicals, and raising and slaughtering their own meat. While some may go to this extreme, it isn't necessary to get more organics in your life - and do so without breaking the bank.

Going organic, specifically eating more organic foods can be achieved on almost any budget. There are many reasons for eating organic, most of which relate to an improvement in the environment, economy and one's health.

Adding more organics to your life includes choosing foods grown in the most natural way as well as finding or making cleaning supplies that are free of harmful chemicals. Choosing clothing made from organic cotton, wool or silk is another way to add organics to your life.

Vegan Living: Your Healthier, Environmentally-Friendly and Cruelty-Free Lifestyle

More and more people are realizing that the vegan lifestyle provides a number of significant health, lifestyle, and ethical benefits. In fact, the number of vegans is growing substantially.

According to according to a 2010 report in Vegetarian Times, 3% American adults, 7.3 million people, follow a vegetarian diet, and one million of them are vegans. (And 23 million say they've significantly reduced their consumption of meat.) Celebrities and public figures are joining the bandwagon too, everyone from Bill Clinton to Ellen DeGeneres, which has led to more acceptance of the vegan lifestyle.

Vegetarians are people who choose to not eat meat. As with any lifestyle, different individuals make different choices. Some may eat seafood. Others might eat eggs and dairy too.

Wheat-Free Living Made Simple

There's a movement going on in the food world. People are changing to a more healthy way of eating. Whether they want to lose a few pounds or for health reasons or because of food allergies, many people are discovering wheat-free living.

Wheat has traditionally been a staple grain throughout history. It originated in southwest Asia and has been consumed for more than 10,000 years. It's not native to the Western Hemisphere, having only been introduced after Columbus came to the New World. Wheat is one of the largest crops of all foods and is one of the most common cereals. It's ground into flour for breads and baked goods as well as many other foods.

So why, then, are people doing away with it in their diet? There are various reasons that include dietary and health reasons. We will take a look at these within this report.
