Cooking tips are included in The Cooks Palate cookbook software and are rotated in viewing panels upon opening the program. You can read about this and other program features on CooksPalate.com.
- Cook with low-fat dairy products. This will decrease the intake of fat that is later stored and used by cancer cells to grow.
- Include fish. The omega-B oils in tuna steak, salmon, mackerel and even sardines appear to be protective of your cell linings in fighting off cancer growth.
- Use tomato pasta sauces. The lycopene in tomatoes is a proven cancer fighter.
- Fill a squeeze bottle with barbecue sauce or marinade. The sauce can be squeezed directly onto foods while grilling, reducing cleanup.
- The French phrase "mise en place" translates to "everything is ready." For smooth sailing in the kitchen, it pays to get organized before you begin cooking. Print your recipe from The Cooks Palate software. Don't worry about splatters, you can always print another one. Carefully read a recipe, then gather all tools, dishes and ingredients that you will need. There is nothing more frustrating than discovering that the liquid measuring cup is dirty when you need it! Chop ingredients and measure
them into small bowls as they do on television. You will be more relaxed and effective in the kitchen.
- Create a cheese garnish: Use a potato peeler to create cheese peels for garnishing salads, soups and more.
- Flavor Olive Oil: Introduce any of the following ingredients to a cup of extra virgin olive oil for flavorful results. Store flavored oil in the refrigerator and use within two weeks:
Fennel (and other herbs)
5-10 Juniper Berries
A few cloves of garlic
- Fight Fried Odors: Next time you fry foods, try placing a small cup of bleach nearby. The bleach absorbs much of the "fried" odor (that would otherwise linger for days!) Be sure to clearly mark the cup and keep it out of the reach of children.
