Each week you will buy foods that are fresh. Below are some ideas and information to keep in mind as you stock your kitchen:
- To add calorie-free flavor to everything you cook, you’ll want a selection of spices on hand… Garlic and onion powder, thyme, oregano, curry, paprika, cumin, cayenne pepper, and cinnamon. Fresh basil is best, but dried basil can be substituted.
- Often recipes call for a small amount of ingredient, for instance spaghetti sauce. When possible, freeze the remaining portion in an ice cube tray, then pop out and store in plastic bags in the freezer for the next time you make the spaghetti.
- Read labels to be sure whole wheat or whole grains are the primary ingredients. Look for hidden sugars (any ingredient ending in “-ose” like sucrose and fructose) and fats.
- Your body needs carbohydrates for energy, and the best sources are whole grains. The higher fiber grains keep your blood sugar and insulin in control. This may prevent the development of type II diabetes.
