Talking Hello everyone

Hello everyone,

I have joined this website to learn about cooking healthier. I have decided to lose weight/body fat. In order to do this (along with exercising), I recently began to steam my foods, instead of frying them.


I currently use a rice cooker/steamer to steam my meals. Does any one have any suggestions? recipes?

Thanks!
Korry

Welcome. There a lot of good cooks just waiting to help you in you quest for a slimmer you. As well as steaming try some reduced portion's with carbs, use good olive oil to cook with I know it has more calories but no cholesterol. instead of salt use lemon juice
and or pure vitamin C ( Jewish Sour Salt ) just a pinch will give foods a real zing in the flavor dept. King Arther sells it cheap to Just a few hints off the top of the ole bean
Also try Lemon Pepper I use it a lot for a quick pick me upper
