A good healthy diet should supply just
enough nutrients for growth, repairs and chemical processes, and give
ample energy for daily tasks. Knowing what to cook for is
crucial in checking whether your diet is healthy. Equally
crucial is knowing what you are eating, so in most of the recipes,
there is a chart with each recipe to show what nutrients a single
serving contains. When you choose a recipe, be sure to read all
the ingredients and instructions before you start making it. You
may need to soak beans or prepare a stock or tomato sauce in advance.
Where ingredients are given in spoonfuls, they have been measured with
standard measuring spoons. You should use a level spoonful when
this is listed; a rounded spoonful can be twice as much as a level
spoonful and would affect the taste if the ingredient is ginger or
basil, for example, and the consistency if the ingredient is flour for
thickening a sauce. Some of the recipes are very quick to
prepare, some take longer, and some require a little preparation the
Choosing and preparing meals is worthy
of thought, planning and effort. Do not gobble or eat on the
run; make a meal an occasion even if it is at an office desk.
Devote time to it, eat slowly and relish your meal. Food is not
a weakness, a fad, an obsession or a sin, but one of life's
necessities and one of its most enduring pleasures.
