Remy’s New Year’s Resolution Pick: Cooking in Your New Home
January 3, 2020
A new year (and a new decade!) mean new chances to make the changes you want in your life. If eating better and cooking for yourself is on your list in 2020, you’ve come to the right place — and Remy can attest to that. He loves nothing more than the smell of healthy, delicious food floating through a McKee Builders kitchen!
With an abundance of room and storage, stylish design, and high-end features, your brand new kitchen is the perfect place to fulfill your foodie resolutions and beyond. When you control the ingredients and portions of your meals, you’ll not only eat healthier, but you’ll enjoy what you’re eating… and what could be better than that?
Become an educated eater: From classic cookbooks to online recipes, there are so many resources to help you discover and cook nutritious meals that cater to your personal tastes and preferences.
Be mindful: Making conscious food choices doesn’t have to be difficult! When you slow down and pay attention to your food, as well as when you’re full, you can savor what you’re eating and control your portions.
Keep it simple: Who says you need “exotic” ingredients to create healthy and delicious deals? The tried-and-true components that you know and love can work wonders in any dish you want to make.
Learn cooking techniques: Experiment! From sautéing to stir-frying to steaming and everything in between, you’ll be able to prepare so many different kinds of meals in different kinds of ways.
Make your kitchen fun: Once your tools, dishware, and food are organized, it’s time to have some fun. Play your favorite music while you cook and record your process like you’re the star of your own cooking show!
Make it easy: So many ingredients are easy to buy in bulk and store, including pre-chopped greens, frozen fruits and vegetables, canned beans, dry pasta and rice, and more. Have these on hand for whenever!
Focus on flavor: It’s easier to eat healthy if your food tastes delicious. Flavor your meals with hearty herbs, spices, or citrus, add vegetable or chicken stock to grain dishes, and make your own vinaigrette for salads.
Eat more fruits and veggies: 5 to 9 servings a day finally doesn’t feel like a chore… Veggies are perfect additions to soups, omelets, pasta, rice, sauces, and more, and fruits are great in yogurt, oatmeal, and salsas.
Eat less meat: You can still enjoy your favorite steak while limiting your meat intake. Opt for smaller servings of lean meat, and try plant-based substitutes (like the incredible Impossible Burger) that taste like the real thing!
At McKee Builders, we can’t get enough of a gorgeous kitchen. We believe this space is your open canvas to create the meals that you love to eat and make you feel great. As you look ahead to all of the wonderful things headed your way this year, get ready to impress yourself (and your friends!) with your best meals yet.
