Get Healther by Cooking More at Home
Linda Shiue, MD, shares some easy first steps
Set up Your Kitchen
With a few basic tools, you'll be able to cook virtually anything:
Stove or induction cooktop
good, sharp knife
Stocking Your Pantry and Freezer
Having these foods on hand can save you time:
frozen fruits and vegetables for smoothies (buy them bagged or cut and freeze your own)
frozen peas or edamame
brown rice, quinoa, other whole grains
beans (dried or canned without added salt)
Meal plan for the week ahead
Set yourself up for success:
Cook and plan several days' worth of food at a time.
Package your meals in containers that make it easy to grab and go.
