Make Healthy Foods Convenient
Does cooking feel like a daunting task in the morning? These burritos can be made ahead of time, frozen, and then reheated. Making recipes at home can save you money and be healthier compared to eating out. In comparison to a popular fast food chain, this recipe has fewer calories, salt, and total fat. These nutrients are not inherently bad, but are best to have in moderation because too much can increase your risk of poor health. Cooking at home puts us in control of our health by being able to choose healthier ingredients for meals and snacks.
Food Safety at Home
When cooking at home, it’s important to incorporate proper food safety practices. You should always wash your hands before and after handling raw eggs. You should fully cook eggs to at least 160° F , or until the yolk and white is firm. Fully cooking eggs eliminates the chances of ingesting bacteria that causes food-borne illness, such as salmonella. For more information about safe minimum cooking temperatures, visit the Foodsafety.gov’s website.
