Cooking methods are important for healthy nutrition, too:
- Sautéing is better than deep-frying. Frying foods adds fats and calories and doesn't add any nutrition.
- Steam your vegetables instead of boiling them to mush. Steaming will preserve more of the vitamins found in the vegetables.
- When you cook your healthy meals at home, be sure to make a little bit extra to save as leftovers to take to work or school as a healthy lunch the next day.
