Preparing Vegetables & Fruit
Cleaning and Cutting
One of the pleasures of cooking is preparing fresh vegetables. The first task is to wash and peel. Safety rules for modern produce require washing in hot water and peeling when you can.
In Phase 1 you practice preparing vegetables
Squash is cooked intact and then the edible tissue is scooped out of the shell. Yams and sweet potatoes can be peeled, cut, and cooked as vegetable pieces, but it is easier to cook them intact and then remove the peel. Watch out for black spots in potatoes, yams and sweet potatoes—these tend to penetrate into the flesh and should be removed with a wide margin since the black is fungal growth.
Cutting practice begins with carrots, broccoli, green beans, and zucchini. Carrots are little mandalas. When you slice them, enjoy the circle designs. Cutting across, length-wise, diagonally, and cubing are all options to change the appearance, cooking time, texture and mouth feel of vegetables.
For steaming, it is best to cut thin slices so that the vegetable cooks quickly and thoroughly. Cut poultry breast meat in slices or small chunks for quick cooking. Make the pieces quite small if you are sautéing, so as to minimize the time it takes to brown and seal the surface. Think of 1 to 3 minutes as the optimal time to sear the surfaces of meat and vegetables at higher temperatures.Click Next and follow me
Alpha Nutrition Cooking expands the Program's meal planning and nutritional advice into a cook book with a difference. Your kitchen is treated as a laboratory where you create recipes that create health rather than disease. Unlike other cook books, only safe foods are chosen for recipes and your learn to prepare meals that will not provoke symptoms and aggravate disease conditions. The recipes are gluten-free, milk-free, egg-free and follow a progressive path from Phase 1 foods ( a strict hypoallergenic diet) to a more expanded food list in Phase 3.
Alpha Nutrition Program The Alpha Nutrition Program is a set of instructions and nutrient tools designed to resolve disease through diet revision.
The Program uses Nutrient Formulas. Alpha ENF is the principle meal replacement formula. Alpha PMX is a fat free version of Alpha ENF can be used as food replacement. Alpha DMX is used instead of of Alpha ENF for diabetes 2 and whenever reduced caloric intake is desirable.
