Nutritious eating is a mindset, says chef Gordon Ramsay, star of Hell’s Kitchen. He gives some food for thought:
Start each day smart. Breakfast can be the key to making healthy eating easier all day. Oats, for example, are a brilliant source of slow-release energy that will keep you going until lunchtime.
Think of food as a lifestyle, not a diet. If you want to improve your family’s health, make a few manageable, lasting changes to the way you cook and eat. Given that I’m a chef, it can be easy to overindulge. I had to make a serious effort. Chefs shouldn’t be overweight; it’s not such a good advertisement for the dessert menu!
Focus on the small stuff. Manageable changes can even be as simple as using less salt or baking instead of frying.
Don’t be intimidated. It’s really easy to make an excellent, healthy dish. It’s all about using the freshest ingredients. I want my readers to be able to enjoy cooking and to learn from my books, not to be put off by complicated recipes.
