Welcome to dinner for five. We have worked hard to bring you dinner recipes and ideas that are healthy, easy to prepare and above all, delicious. Cooking should be a joy not a chore, but all of us unfortunately at one time or another, run out of inspiration in the kitchen. This website is designed to put the fun back into cooking, so without further ado, let's get started!
The ready meal: this is the scourge of the culinary world. It is all too easy to buy one from your local supermarket, pop it in the microwave and within five minutes, have a hot meal in front of you. But take a look at the packaging. All those hard to pronounce ingredients, this isn't eating. A microwave meal will do nothing positive for your constituency. With the right cooking advice, you can create something healthy, full of the vitamins your body needs and still beat the clock of the microwave.
Every kitchen needs a few basic ingredients, ingredients that will add flavor and taste to any meal. First of all, a kitchen needs olive oil. Olive oil is so versatile and so good for you, we cannot speak highly enough of it. Take a look at the facts. In countries where olive oil is a staple part of the diet, there is less heart disease, lower instances of cardiovascular disease, less dry skin and a longer life span. One tablespoon of olive oil contains 120 calories and 14 grams of fat. But this fat is monounsaturated, meaning that it is actually good for the heart! It has beneficial effects on cholesterol levels and is easy to digest.
Olive oil works great on almost any food. A simple leaf salad can be transformed into something delicious by adding olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt. Forget ranch dressing, using just these two ingredients will make something that tastes better and is super healthy.
The next essential ingredient every kitchen needs to produce wonderful dinner recipes is garlic. Garlic is THE superfood. Garlic reduces blood pressure; in fact regular consumption can reduce the risk of heart disease by up to 25%. It prevents cholesterol from oxidizing and clogging the arteries and even has antibacterial properties, properties that are equivalent to 1% of penicillin. Read on to find exciting ways to incorporate this superfood into your home cooking.
Once you know how to cook and produce delicious meals at home, your life will significantly improve. You will feel better, have more energy and your skin will glow as well. We all need to take good care of ourselves and it is our passion to educate you on ways to lead a healthier, happier and of course, tastier life.
