Learn to Cook Healthier

by Maren Sederquist, MES, CSCS, PES, LWMC, CPT

When you eat out at a restaurant, it's hard to control what goes into your meal. You never know how much butter they're going to use (unless of course, you ask them to omit it). It's also hard to control your portions, since they always serve more that what one serving should be. One of the easiest ways to control how much food you eat and what goes into your meals, is to cook at home. Provided you cook healthy meals at home and only serve yourself one serving.

Here are some resources for healthier cooking at home.
