Tip of the Week: 10 Reasons Why You Should Steam Your Food

Some of you may have realized that I am now trying my best to cook healthier, and over the past two weeks, have experimented with different steamed vegetables. (See my recipes on Steamed Carrots in Olive Oil & Oregano and French Beans & Carrots Salad.)

So last night when I was surfing the net, I came across this interesting article which highlights the benefits of steaming and I thought I’d share them with you : )

10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD STEAM YOUR FOOD:

1. Retains food valuable nutrients, vitamins and minerals
2. Maintains food moisture and freshness
3. Keeps food vibrant colors and natural flavors
4. Softens food fibres, making food tender and easily digestible
5. Discard the need for cooking oil or fat, resulting in light and healthy meals
6. Cooks almost all kinds of food from vegetables to meats to seafood to fruits and pasta
7. Cooks food fast and easy – cooks a complete meal in just under 30 minutes
8. Cooks over a single heat source a load of different layers of food stacked one on top of the other – saves time, energy and money
9. Keeps your kitchen clean – no oil, no smoke, no mess – cleaning up is easy.
10. Keeps everyone happy and healthy with loads of recipes for delicious and nutritious steamed dishes
