After all, everybody knows how to cook vegetables. You either steam or bake them or broil them, or fry them, or grill them or eat them raw. Well, luckily for us, we have begun to fully understand the importance of vegetables in our daily diet. Until more recent years, the use of vegetables in our diet was much neglected. Their dietetic importance was insufficiently appreciated. The method of cooking was wasteful and also inferior in many parts of the world when compared to cuisines where vegetable cooking was that part of the daily routine Due to a worldwide appreciation of the importance of vegetables to keep you healthy and strong, more and more people are insisting on home grown vegetables grown the organic way. Greater attention and encouragement is being given to such enterprising gardeners. Such growers for the markets are being human, better facilities. Along with better marketing locations and opportunities, with plenty of their produce being imported, vegetable foods are gaining importance globally as one of the best sources of income. With the growth of vegetarianism as a way of living and of the habit of eating less meat, greater attention is also being given to this branch of cookery. However, many people still think vegetable cooking to be boring, because there is a lack of variety in the food itself. There is plenty of waste before cooking. Leftover vegetables’ being put into one dish, cooked in a monotonous method and then served up has given vegetables a bad press throughout the years. In fact, up to 20 years ago, cooks in many parts of the world still cooked vegetables, the traditional way, followed by their ancestors with absolutely no change. That was to dump it in boiling water, and allow it to over boil and become a complete hash and mash. And then it was dished up on a platter in a rather sloppy and sloven fashion, where you could either eat it or leave it. The diners often left it. They survived on the accompanying meat. That is why they decided that meat was a much better lunch and dinner item than vegetables. And they transmitted this attitude on to the people around well as well as to their children. That is why the art of vegetable cookery never got the chance to spread its wings and flourish. Also vegetables in addition to being accompaniments to meat dishes were also served as side dishes or as a separate course altogether in the menu. So if you did not like vegetables, you could skip that particular course. Luckily, now vegetables are being used as a major part of the main meal’s course as a contrast to other dishes or as tasty dishes on their own.

Just because you're trying to lose weight doesn't mean you actually need to give up your favorite foods. It also doesn't mean when summer is here you only need to eat salads or steamed fish. Did you know when trying to lose weight, eating meals cooked on a barbecue can help you to achieve your goals? Most people, when the words "barbecue" are said will immediately think of warm summer evenings enjoying great food and drink with their friends and family. However by choosing to barbecue their food they are actually making a subconscious decision to eat more healthily. Through barbecuing you'll find yourself actually eating less fat. This is because when you choose to cook meat or fish on a barbecue you only need to provide a light coating of oil to prevent it from sticking to the grill. Another reason why barbecuing food is much better for you when losing weight is it has a much lower calorie count. So of course the fewer calories being consumed means you won't have to burn off so many when exercising. Yet you'll still find you can still eat the same amount of food. As well as helping to reduce the amount of calories and fat you consume by grilling food on a barbecue you are actually reducing the chances of you developing such diseases as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease or a stroke.

Introduction to Fats and Oils - Cooking Fats and Oils for Good Health Table of Contents Introduction Butter What Is Clarified Butter? How to make Clarified Butter Margarine Lard Cooking Fats Olive Oil Coconut Oil Cholesterol Coconut Butter How to make Coconut Butter Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction Why would anybody want to write a book on fats and oils, especially when they are used in cooking, you may ask. This is because most of us have a mindset that fats and oils in our food are definitely items to be avoided by any sensible person who is bothered about the state of his health. Well, the answer is that that we have become so obsessed about weight loss and weight gain, that we have forgotten one main medical truth. Our body cannot do without fat, and that is the reason why any diet which talks about 0% fat is not going to be helpful to our bodies. That is because our bodies are genetically and naturally programmed to have a layer of subcutaneous fat, which we normally call cellulite. That is to protect the inner organs from any sort of damage from external sources, and it is between the skin, the muscle and the inner organs. The vulnerable inner organs, especially in the stomach region are protected with this layer – the obese layer you call a beer belly – and that is why any fatty item you eat is going to be observed by your body and the fatty cells turned into “protective” cellulite. For millenniums, this fatty layer was considered to be a storehouse of energy, from which the body could get extra nutrition. When human beings were in a state of starvation or malnutrition due to the paucity of food, the fatty cells would break up and provide them with the necessary energy in order to keep going until the natural fat storage layer could be restored again with available food.
