Cooking Products for Eating Better with LESS FAT!Written by Helen Porter,
This is a mini guide to help you eat better, giving you some insider tips on getting that healthy lifestyle. This is not just about food but also about way you cook.
Firstly tools of trade. We love new cast iron range from Berghoff as stocked by simplykitchenware.com. This range is lightweight and contains an advanced non stick coating; not only preventing your food from getting stuck or burnt on but also preventing need for non essential fats. We recommend 4 pans for your kitchen; grill pan, saute pan 18cm, Wok and deep saucepan. The range is light weight and has detachable handles which means you can put item in oven easily. We were amazed that in just a few moments in washing bowl pans were clean!
Top tip during cooking is to have some kitchen roll/paper on hand, you can use this to gently mop up those non essential oils released during cooking to make your food healthier and get rid of those non essential calories.
Top foods to cook in your Grill/Saute Pan - no oil or fats needed! * Steak - top tip make sure pan is hot before placing. The grill pan will give you a charring effect * Chicken breast - put a whole chicken breast between 2 pieces of clingfilm, bash out with a rolling pin till flatten. season with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon and rub in a teaspoon of balsamic oil. * If you love fish with that grilling effect then again grill pan is perfect and easy to clean afterwards! If you have more delicate fish use sautepan and control heat.
