10 Tips for Cleaner, Healthier and Faster Cooking

Everyone can use some basic cooking tips and below you'll find 10 of the best ones to help you cook cleaner, faster and healthier.

10 Tips for Cleaner, Healthier and Faster Cooking

1. Easy Microwave Clean Up – Keep a paper plate in the microwave to catch messy spills. When it is time to clean, just throw the paper plate out and replace with a new one.

2. Perfect Fried Fish Tip - Your fish will be perfectly fried if you put it in a little milk before flouring it. Also, put it into the pan when the oil is very hot, but not smoking. Your family will love the perfect crispiness.

3. Kitchen Tricks - Don't throw out trimmings from onions and celery. Instead, freeze them to use later when you make stock or broth to add a rich flavor.

4. Make Your Lemons Juicier - Want really juicy lemons? Try this little trick. Just before you squeeze the lemons, put them in hot water. You can also place lemons in a preheated warm oven. These warmed up lemons will produce a lot more juice.

5. Apples for a Clean Mouth - Ever gone camping and forgot your toothbrush? Always remember to take a few apples along. Apples not only help digest your food, but they clean and disinfect your mouth too.

6. Ripening Fruits and Vegetables - A lots of fruit and vegetables found in supermarkets today look ripe but are hard as a rock. Put them in a brown paper bag and hide the bag away in a dark cupboard for a day or two before you eat them. Do the same for other fruits and vegetables such as avocados, bananas, kiwi fruit, peaches, nectarines, and more.

7. Prepare a Quick Salad - Serve salad ingredients on a bed of lettuce rather than tearing the salad greens into small pieces. Just lay a few lettuce leaves on the plate and layer it with a slice of tomato, cucumber, red onion and olives for a quick and healthy side dish to any meal.

8. Tender Meat – You can tenderize meat using one to two tablespoons of vinegar. Prepare a quick marinade with vinegar and spices. Allow meat to marinate in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes before cooking.

9. Wilted Vegetables – Perk up wilted vegetables by soaking in a mixture of 2 cups water and 1 tablespoon vinegar.

10. No More Burnt Skewers – Shish kebabs are a healthy and delicious meal, especially for summer cookouts. When using wooden skewers for kebabs, keep them from burning by soaking in cold water for 10-30 minutes before placing them on the grill.
