Cooking & Eating Rules

COOKING RULES

         ~ preserving the nutrients & enzymes~

  • The more raw the better in general
  • Buy small quantities and cook/eat fresh foods (shop at least 2x per week)
  • Cook at low temperatures; personally I never cook above 4 (out of 10) unless I am boiling water or cooking a stew or something similar
  • Do not microwave, fry, smoke, or broil at high temperatures unless you are heating something that is already void of nutrients
  • Plan your meals so you can shop ahead and prepare ahead for 2-4 days at a time
  •  Cook with love and attention, seriously, the food will absorb that energy
  • Use enough oil so things don’t stick to the pan, but don’t overdo it
  • Make sure your pots and pans are good quality and don’t have tears in their lining so the metals leak out
  • Make sure your oils are not old, they will go rancid quicker than you think. Just smell them and you will know.
  • Cooking is to activate your foods enzymes, not make it black or brown. Keep the food crisp and fresh even after cooking
