Healthy Cooking. Let's Spread the Word Together

Previously, I have told you that my blog is not meant to be a food blog. It is not indeed, but occasionally some recipes pop up. This is not because I want to boast of my culinary skills.

As a matter of fact, most of the food ideas I share with you here are quite humble. Nevertheless, I can’t help sharing them as I am totally fond of cooking and baking… and chocolate, and sweets, and desserts. My Gosh, how much I love desserts… 🙂

Most of the time, I try to stick to the idea of healthy eating. Some cooking methods are banned in my kitchen – say, frying, especially deep frying. If my other half wants anything fried at home, he never asks me to prepare it. Because he knows I wouldn’t. I’d rather spare our stomachs from all that grease. Why should I eat something that causes aches in my body, no matter how delicious it could be? Not to mention the importunate smell of frying all over the house, and the sticky greasy dirt. Oh, and yes, a fryer is among the appliances I would never have in my kitchen.

Anyway, let’s continue with the healthy food. Here, on the blog, I have published some recipes I consider healthy and I will continue doing it. As I have said it before, I wholeheartedly believe in the importance of healthy diet for the whole family. I’d love to interact with people who either agree or disagree with me on that, and this is one of the reasons I have started blogging in the first place. The more we discuss it the better. I completely support the concept of homemade food and I am pretty certain that anyone could prepare healthy meals at home. Easily and quickly.

If I can convince more people that it is mission possible, then I have achieved something huge. If I can spread my enthusiasm for healthy eating habits and show my lovely readers that healthy is not equal to dull and tasteless, this would give me indescribable joy and satisfaction.

Because healthy does not necessarily mean tonnes of unsalted broccoli or lettuce leaves. On the contrary, it could be even more delicious, mouthwatering and exciting than the crappy stuff that floods the market. Treats and sinful meals are OK too, everyone needs a bit of indulgence from time to time. But let’s not turn them into our usual everyday food.

Most importantly, children should understand the whole thing correctly so that we could have them on board and see them enjoy their healthy dishes. It’s our responsibility as parents.

By the way, are you inspired by Jamie Oliver? So am I. The chef who has been talking about healthy eating for years emphasising the alarming effects of our kids’ poor diet. He is often criticised but I think he has done some amazing things so far – raising awareness about high sugar intake and obesity among children, for example. If interested in the matter, please watch this powerful video.

Now, after all this ranting, I’d better get to the point. You already know I’m a culinary enthusiast. You also know there will be some (healthy) recipes on my little blog. So after a very short consideration, I decided to become part of one of the best, if not the best, food sites – Yummly. What a shame, but I have found out about it quite recently.

I’d like to thank Tracy Morgan from The Culinary Jumble for encouraging me to do it. Check out her magnificent recipes. You’ll love them.

This is my Yummly page. I will deeply appreciate your support if you pay me a visit there and Yum my recipes. Let’s spread the word about healthy cooking together.

Thank you for reading my blog. It’s a great privilege for me.

    You are welcome, Marina! I am sure you will love Yummly as much as me! Totally agree about the healthy eating and no deep fat frying in our house, either! Unless we are making fish and chips (because I am British and I have to get them somewhere in Sweden!), which is usually once a year!

    Have you thought about getting an Actifry? I absolutely love ours and use it to cook all the things you would usually fry (even doughnuts), and wouldn’t be without it!

      Oh, thank you for sharing about Actifry, Tracy! Sounds like a healthier alternative which makes it a must-have. As for frying food, once a year is just fine. 😉 xxx
