You want to try something out that is completely different from what you have been eating up until now. You want your food to have a distinct flavor. You want to deviate from traditional recipes. The following is a list of a few things that you can do to revamp your recipes and give your food preparations a new twist. Let’s begin:
1. Try Dry Roasting
For this, you will need a great quality nonstick pan which should be easily available in a store near you anywhere in Brooklyn NY. Remember, dry roasting also helps you preserve a lot of the nutrients of your vegetables. You can begin by dry roasting almonds, pistachios, walnuts, and pecans on your pan without even a drop of oil. Remember not to overdo it because it is only going to destroy the natural oils present in these nuts.
All you need to do is warm them up a little till they become crunchy enough. You can add them to your breakfast cereal, preferably something without sugar. You can also try preparing a vegetable omelet loaded with bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, zucchini, and green peas without adding even a bit of oil on the same nonstick pan.
2. Salt And Sugar, No, Please
Have you ever considered cutting down your salt and sugar intake? Well, it is not going to happen overnight because it is similar to taking out all the taste from your food. You will first have to find a natural substitute for salt and sugar only then can you move forward. However, you can always begin by excluding the following items from your daily diet:
· High sodium foods such as pickles and processed meats
· Candies, sweet chocolates, desserts, and cakes
· Say goodbye to salted bacon and chicken fries
· Avoid using frozen vegetables and canned fruits and pick something fresh instead
· Do not go for a restaurant meal (try to cook at home as much as possible)
Try to go for healthier options such as mineral salts and jaggery or honey instead of regular salt and sugar. You should also be able to find ready-to-eat mild meals such as Brooklyn NY Meal Prep that are easy to cook and 100% plant-based.
3. Blend It Well
How about some really delicious smoothies? You have yogurt with you. You also have low fat and skim milk. The next step is to go to your nearest supermarket in Brooklyn NY and grab some fresh fruits. Get some pineapple, mango, apple, blueberries, bananas, kiwi fruit, raspberries, strawberries, and any other delicious fruit that you can get your hands on. Just blend the ingredients together till you get the required consistency. You can also use soya milk, almond milk, coconut milk, and buttermilk to give it an even healthier twist.
4. What About Something Raw?
What about fresh herbs and salads? It is time to welcome smoked salmon, tuna, sardines, and the best quality feta cheese in the market to your home. Say hello to lemongrass, garlic, ginger, chili paste, mustard, and olive oil. The next list is going to include items such as cottage cheese, tofu, sweet potatoes, beans, mushrooms, baby corn, lettuce, spinach, parsley, and coriander
You have yourself a huge ensemble of food items that will make for not one but several beautiful and healthy salads. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s dig in!
