Good to know
- Storing: Make sure to store your meal in an airtight container in the refrigerator if you are not eating all of it right away.
- Shelf life: The meal will stay good for a few days if stored correctly.
- Using fresh fruits and vegetables: Make sure to wash fruits and vegetables that do not require peeling.
- Working with fruits and vegetables: Make sure your fruits and vegetables are ripe before you start prepping them. It’s a shame to use ingredients that will not add their full flavour to your dish. As a side note, it is equally important to make sure your ingredients are not overly ripe unless the recipe allows for it.
- Organic: To make this recipe organic, only use organic ingredients.
- Gluten-free: Use gluten-free pasta.
- Using white wine: In case you were wondering; there is no alcohol left in the dish at the end. All the alcohol evaporates out of the sauce while you are preparing it.
- Using fresh herbs: If you aren’t using herbs from your own garden, always make sure to check if you need to clean your herbs before you use them.
Know What You Eat
Both when buying food or when making your own, it is important to inform yourself about the nutritional value. Have a look at the nutrition label, learn about your serving size and what nutrients this product will bring to the table.
If you want to compare different products and their values, it is easier to look at a label where the values are given per 100 grams. This way you get a better understanding of the categories certain products belong to when it comes to nutritional values. Is this a product with a high sugar content? Does it contain a lot of fibre? How does this product measure up if I am looking to stick to a low-sodium diet?
Keep in mind that if you are looking to eat healthily, you should not just avoid eating fat and/or sugar. We need both in our daily diet. Make sure however to be aware of where you get your lipids and sugars from. As a rule of thumb, you could say; variation is very important in your diet and in general, the closer your food is to come straight from the source, the better.
