Healthy Cooking Tips

Since I'm away from home (and thus nowhere near my kitchen), I decided to turn to Google for today's healthy cooking post. I was curious what listings would come up if I did a search on "healthy cooking tips." Here are the top five links:

1. The Top 10 healthy cooking tips from the American Heart Association
-- I'd heard some of these tips before but not others.

2. The Top 10 healthy cooking tips from Fitness and Freebies -- This listing makes note that it's just not the foods we eat but also how we prepare them that is important. This list also can help you meet recommendations put forth by the American Institute for Cancer Research for lowering cancer risk. There is some overlap with the first list, but some unique items too. The one that made me sad was the no charring of food. When we grill out, I like my meat blackish. But this produces cancer-causing compounds. :(

3. Lots of recipes and articles on healthy eating at Eating Well's site.

4. The tagline on Cooking Light's site is "Making healthy taste great," and it looks like they have lots of great information and recipes. When I just checked the site, the homepage has links to features on 20-Minute Meals, some Eat Smart Videos, 10 Foods for Strong Bones, Fall Soups, and a feature called Lighten Up in which they've taken some favorite recipes and made them more healthful by making some slight changes.

5. Lots of good tips and reminders at Diet Motion's site.

Friday's progress:

Calorie count: Don't know. Haven't had time to try to figure it out since I'm at the conference.

Exercise: 10 minutes treadmill, 5 minutes stretching and weights, 40 minutes elliptical, 10 minutes bike. Wow, I didn't realize I was in the gym more than an hour. And I decided I wanted the fancy elliptical with the TV on it. :)

Steps: 10,662

I liked the AHA ones - perhaps because I was familiar with them all and had tried them at least once. I do #3 all the time, I really have to watch it when I cook veggies bc I tend to overcook instead of undercook, and I make smoothies a lot - though I never, ever use protein powder. Why would I want to add calories from "fake" food?
