Cook Before You Eat — HealthCorps’ Tips for Healthy Meals and Snacks
Cooking and eating with family and friends is the perfect way to get healthy.
One doesn’t have to be trained in French cooking to prepare healthy gourmet meals. At HealthCorps schools, students are learning to cook nutritious gourmet meals through the Teen Battle Chef Program.
At home, eating healthfully can be easy with a bit of practice.
- Choose nutritious ingredients — especially colorful vegetables like red pepper, yams, green or red kale and broccoli
- Replace corn oil with olive oil or flaxseed oil
- Use fresh herbs and garlic or onion, rather than salt, to add flavor
- Take time to eat dinner with family members in a relaxed atmosphere. Enhance your wellness by investing time in YOU.
