Cooking Your Food

Do you cook your meals?  If you are eating healthy, you should.  Most foods in restaurants, even if it is ‘healthy,’ is cooked in oils that are not healthy.  It’s always a better choice to eat at home if possible.  Previously my schedule didn’t allow for me to cook much.  Usually my wife had dinner ready and the kids eating by the time I got home.  Since I’ve changed my schedule a bit, I am able to cook dinner more.  Although I’m learning, I have started to really enjoy cooking.  It makes me feel good to know that I am cooking something that is healthy, and it tastes good.  

We have a bunch of different cook books on the shelves and many of them have great recipes that are healthy, but not many of them teach techniques on how to cook.  A book that I have really enjoyed using is 4 Hour Chef by Tim Ferriss.  In the book, he breaks down techniques of cooking and gives simple dishes that after you learn them, you can translate those skills into higher order cooking.  His whole schtick is about creating the maximum results out of the least amount of effort, so he packs culinary school into bit sized chunks that even I can do.  It’s pretty fantastic.  He also throws all kinds of random tid bits in there about other things too.  I highly recommend the book if you are interested in cooking.  He doesn’t do Paleo, but he does his own diet called, ‘Slow Carb.’  It’s fairly close to Paleo, so you can adjust his recipes if need be.  Either way, I think it’s important to know how to cook, so check it out and let me know what your favorite Paleo recipes are!
