In the metaphysical, we often say that there are multiple ways of getting something done. The same counts for cooking.
Take chicken wings as an example. I have 2 recipes that I love. First, is my original recipe of just buying some McCormick Buffalo Wing seasoning and doing the shake-n-bake thing with it. Problem is that it is loaded with sodium. Since I’ve switched to an even lower sodium diet than ever, I can now feel my body having a negative reaction to the amount of sodium in it (over 300mg!). All well and good, that’s why I have my other recipe that just calls for me to bake chicken plain and then at the end, mix it with Frank’s Hot Sauce. Check the ingredients list on Frank’s Hot Sauce – it’s all sorts of healthy for ya. It’s no substitute for a fruit or vegetable, but is still full of goodness. So I use that recipe instead.
Both taste awesome in different ways, so it’s not like I’m replacing chicken wings with… some tofu crap with rice cakes or something stupid like that.
So, there’s today’s simple practical tip for healthier food intake: have choices when it comes to recipes you like for creating a food item you love consuming.
