Natural Recipes

377675343_c68848119f_m

by Adam Kubanimage: Before technology and industrialization capturedAmerica, simplicity and back breaking hard work were the typical way of life.  This way of life brought a style of all natural cooking that has been around since the beginning of time.  Our great-great grandmothers would be shocked and appalled at what Americans call food.  How do we get back to how nature intended?  Making the commitment to eat foods and cooking meals with natural ingredients will bring Americans back to health. Natural recipes will generate wholesome meals that will satisfy the palate as well as meet nutritional needs. What is a natural recipe?  It is a recipe that contains foods in their fundamental state.  Fresh fruits and vegetables are the easiest to recognize, since they come directly from the ground, a plant, or a tree.  They also spoil quickly, which is a great indication of their nutritional value.  Foods that can reside on the counter or in a box, with an extended shelf life, have very little value to our bodies and lack essential vitamins and minerals.  Obviously, added vitamins to a food (cold cereal for example) do not constitute a healthy choice.  Why?  Artificial duplication of nutrients in a laboratory is not how our bodies absorb the necessary components to function. Another red flag ingredient is a flavor enhancer.  Sadly, everything that has a lot of savory flavor and excites the taste buds usually contains a form of monosodium glutamate.  The question might be asked, “Why isn’t it safe?  Hasn’t it been approved by the FDA?”  Anyone who exhibits side effects of this additive will argue that it is not safe to eat.  The consequences for them to consume any forms of this flavor enhancer can be mild to quite severe.  To avoid having to read through a long list…

The early versions of the electric George foreman grill had a tendency to brown the meat in a slightly uneven manner however the problem has effectively been resolved with the newer versions on the market today.
