Green cooking tools to sweeten your meals
With the concept of green kitchen becoming a fad, many people are adopting a greener life by even cooking green. Green cooking, in its simplest forms, is the process of making healthier and eco friendly food for a healthier lifestyle. Green is in these days and so is the emphasis towards a green life. In an effort to improve your health and overall well being, green cooking is arguably the best thing to have happened.
While making tasty and nutritious food using green kitchen appliances will do most of the needful, it is also important to incorporate ‘green’ ingredients in to your favorite recipes. Many of us have a sweet tooth. This is why most of the recipes require sweeteners. While you can’t really quit having sweet, there are lot other things that can sweeten up your life other than sugar. Looking for alternatives for sugar is important because of the various health problems that arise from over consumption of sugar. Many health conscious today are hence switching to natural sweeteners. While things like honey, maple syrup or concentrated apple juice act as natural sweeteners; organic stevia is possibly the best substitute for sugar in baking. This natural herbal extract intended for dietary supplement contains natural sweetening agents. Refined sugar is virtually devoid of nutritional benefits and, at best, represents empty calories in the diet. At worst, it has been implicated in numerous degenerative diseases. Stevia is much sweeter than sugar and has none of sugar’s unhealthy drawbacks.
Wine is another important ingredient used in preparation of many sauces and stews – healthier approach is to use the organic red wine. While choosing a white wine or red wine depends entirely on personal taste preference, red wine is often considered better in many aspects. An even better and an even healthier option is the organic red wine. Although red wine is naturally richer than itswhite counterpart, a considerable portion of its anti-oxidants are lost if it not processed organically.
