Nutritious vs. Delicious: A Taste-bud Battle
Is it possible for foods to be both nutritious and delicious? Either way, could you share some of your most nutritious and/or delicious recipes here for us?
Nutritious and Delicious is easy. There are some basics that make it easier even.
Use fresh ingredients from your farmer's market or from your garden.
Do not add a lot of fat or oil
Use fresh herbs and spices
Here is one simple recipe:
Asian Clay Pot Chicken
1 pound of fresh chicken cut into pieces without skin
2 onions chopped roughly
2 or 3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 sprigs of fresh thyme
8 baby squash
2 head broccoli
6 baby carrots
fresh ground pepper and sea salt
This requires a clay baker that has been soaked for 10 to 15 minutes.
In a skillet, sweat the onions for 4 to 6 minutes until that start to turn brown. Then add them to the bottom of the clay baker. Add the chicken and garlic to onions. Place the vegetables over the chicken and top with the sprigs of thyme. Salt and pepper to taste (it will not need a lot). Place the top on clay baker and place in a cold over. Set the temperature to 400 and cook for 30 minutes. Check to be sure the chicken is done through and if not put it back in the oven for a few more minutes.
This will give you a nutritious and delicious meal that will have great tasting vegetables and a natural sauce from the pot to server with the meal.

mostly delicious food is not nutritious and vice versa. i love delicious food over the nutritious one. but this nutritious food can be made delicious by some experiments. Always keep trying new things and spices to add a new aroma to the nutritious food. EAVEN THOUGH IT DOESNT taste good, one has consume it. No choice, it will keep you healthy and fit for long
Burgers made at home. Think about it, the meat (Protein), whole wheat bun (Carb), mount a lot of veggies (fiber, vit/min). This is my favorite nutritious and delicious meal. And yes, if you make it yourself and it is not all processed garbage, it can be very healthy and balanced meal.

In my opinion, fast food is better than fresh food for 3 reasons. First, it's your best friend when you're hungry. You can take it anywhere and you don't have to cook it. You can warm it in 2 minutes by putting it into a microwave. Second, it's easy to buy fast food. You can buy it from...

Just a heads up that our favorite frog has granted access to her lilypad. When I found out that frogdropping had a sweet little site with more of her wit, wisdom, and everything else we love about her, my thought was: "why was I not informed?"To perform what I believe is my civic duty, I...

Do you prefer chicken breasts or chicken thighs?Let's face it everyone loves breasts, but when it comes to that fat that lies on the thighs, most of us can't help ourselves. So which do you prefer, chicken breasts or chicken thighs? (I'm talking about food and cooking here people).
