Protein smoothies and shakes are a fast and easy way to eat healthy during the day. You can purchase whey, soy, rice, or hemp protein in a variety of flavors from your local health store and everything else can be found at any grocery store. All you need is a quality blender and a few key ingredients. Things like yogurt; low fat dairy milk, soymilk, almond or rice milk; fresh or frozen fruit, nuts and seeds; and even vegetables like carrots and kale can all be combined in a good quality blender to make a smoothie that is packed with protein and vitamins to keep you energized throughout the day.
Cast iron pans can make stir-frying a snap. Stir-frying with healthy oils like toasted sesame and olive oil can help infuse vegetables with the right kinds of fat. Mono and polyunsaturated fats are good for your body, and they are found in things like olive oil, beans, and legumes. The thickness and excellent heat conduction offered by cast iron cookware helps you cook food more evenly which makes it easier to whip up a good meal fast.
If you have a baby to feed, food processors can make it easy to create your own organic baby food at home. Why buy brand name baby foods that are full of preservatives when you can easily mix healthy ingredients in no time at home. Mix and match fruit, veggie, and protein combinations until you find one your baby really enjoys. Eating healthy early is crucial for your baby’s development and when you make your own food you know exactly what goes into your baby’s stomach.
