How to Create Healthy Recipes for Dinner

Nowadays more and more people try to eat well. But unfortunately not all of them know the basic rules of healthy nourishment. Luckily, there are simple and you can learn very fast how to create your own healthy recipes for dinner.

First off all each meal should be balanced. What does it mean? It should contain some poultry, lean meat, sea fish, seafood, some brown rice, whole wheat pasta, cereal or potatoes with their skins on, right spices and plenty of vegetables.

Roasted or steamed cod with brown cooked rice and a cooked corn cob.

Roasted or steamed chicken breast with cooked whole wheat pasta, steamed broccoli and cauliflower.

Roasted or steamed salmon with bulgur wheat, fresh watercress, rocket leaves and spinach.

Roasted or steamed turkey breast with couscous and steamed Brussels sprouts.

Banana Cue A Comfort Food

It is broken down into breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, mid afternoon snack, dinner and midnight snack. It is already written in the society’s psyche. What am I trying to point at?

Let me introduce you to one of the comfort foods of Filipinos. It is made from cardava banana. I may be wrong here but cardava is being used solely as one ingredient for food shakes in other countries.

However, I will talk about it being fried.

This is the banana cue. The name banana cue comes from the combination of the words banana and barbecue. It is deep fried with coats of caramelised sugar and placed on a barbecue stick. It also goes by the
