Food dehydration delivers the vast majority of foods with the same vitamins and minerals as their fresh counterparts, in a remarkable array of concentrated flavors, nutrients and enzymes. According to health professionals, “The dehydration process retains almost 100% of the nutritional content of the food, retains the alkalinity of fresh produce and actually inhibits the growth of microforms such as bacteria.” The shriveled state of dehydrated vegetables may make them seem less appetizing than their fresh or frozen cousins at first glance. However, drying vegetables for later use is one of the oldest and easiest methods of food preservation.

Unfortunately, some of the most delicious foods around, such as fried chicken and French fries, are not good for your waistline nor for your overall well-being, since cooking them requires vast amounts of oil. Nevertheless, you can enjoy the flavor and texture of deep-fried foods without the negative effects on your health with the use of an air fryer.
Air fryers were first launched in Australia and Europe in 2010. After becoming a big hit, they were soon released in North America and Japan. Now, you can find air fryers practically in most modern kitchens where they are used to cook everything from chips to samosas.
But while air frying can be considered a healthier way of cooking, it doesn’t mean you can eat high-fat foods every day without putting your health at risk. Remember that you still need to exercise self-control and stick to cooking mostly healthy foods if you want to stay fit.
If you’ve ever wondered about how air frying works and whether it is indeed better for you, this eBook has all the information you need. It also contains healthy recipes so you and your whole family can enjoy all the benefits of air frying.

Pests, such as insects or beetles can often find there way into your herbs and spices – some hitching a ride directly from the field from which they are gown. They especially like pepper-based spices such as paprika, cayenne pepper, chili powder and more. Here are
- Before you buy a spice, inspect the packaging. Is it damaged? If its packaged in glass, look closely to see if any bugs are inside. Bugs find there way into the packaging on the plant itself or during the original packaging.
- The freezer will kill off anything that may already be in the package. Put your spices in the freezer for four days, which will kill off what already is there you don’t know about.
- Rather than keep open containers or loosely sealed containers, store your spices in air tight containers, especially bulk spices.
- Purchase only the amount you need over the next few months. Herbs and spices can lose their potency in any case, so this is always the best strategy. Also follow the first-in, first-out rule by using your oldest spices before using the newer refill.
