Cook, not Burn

QUICK COOKING TIP: Foods rich in water-soluble vitamins should be cooked gently and not exposed to high heat in order to retain their nutritional value.

It is important to cook food at an appropriate temperature. Foods rich in Vitamins B and C should be cooked gently as these water-soluble vitamins have a low stability to heat. Next time you are cooking with broccoli, green leafy vegetables, potatoes or other food items rich in water-soluble vitamins, make sure to cook at low to medium heat and for the appropriate amount of time in order to avoid the loss of their vitamin value.

Yum Dip

Keep cool this summer with my super-quick and refreshing, Yum Dip.

Ingredients:

  1. 1/2 of a small tomato finely chopped
  2. 1/4 cup Ranch dressing
  3. 1/3 cup Mayonnaise
  4. Handful of Cilantro – finely chopped

Method:

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl – start with ranch, mayo, cilantro and then add in the tomato.

Enjoy with your favorite snacks. You can relish this with tortilla chips, wings or any other snacks that you want! 😋

Note: make sure to taste your ranch dressing and mayo before mixing because you may want to avoid ingredients that are more on the sour side (usually some varieties of ranch vinaigrette dressing and avocado oil mayonnaise are a little too sour). In that case, just use a regular variety of ranch and mayo.

My favorite pre-workout snack

Sharing the recipe of my favorite pre-workout snack and sometimes, this is also my instant breakfast.

Almond Banana Toast

Ingredients:

  1. One slice of any multigrain bread
  2. Banana
  3. Almond butter

Method:

1. Toast a slice of any multigrain bread on both sides.

2. Spread some smooth almond butter on one side of the slice. Tip: I personally like the smooth almond butter but you can try the crunchy almond butter if you like that one.

3. Cut some banana (usually less than half) into slices and gently cover the toast with banana slices.

4. You can have the toast like I have it in the picture or you can fold it and easily have it on the go.

5. Sometimes, this is also my instant breakfast along with the leftover banana.
