Cooking at home puts you in control of what goes in your food and is often a healthier alternative than eating at restaurants. Half the battle is having the right supplies ensuring your food is cooked in a healthy way. Use a steamer basket for veggies and a non-stick pan to reduce your need for butter. Every kitchen should contain a really sharp knife and a purchase a hand blender, great for making fruit smoothies.
