Leading a Nutritious and Delicious Life.
Your main questions about healthy cooking answered by ActiFry.
How can we increase nutrition and taste in our everyday eating?
Focus on great ingredients, for example, local, seasonal produce. You don’t have to do much to make them shine. Use healthful, high flavor ingredients such as citrus juice and zest, spices like cumin, curry powder, cinnamon, cracked black pepper and chili peppers (to name a few). You don’t have to rely on unhealthy fats with these flavor boosters. Also, choose healthier cooking methods that don’t require a lot of fat. With the ActiFry, you only need one tablespoon of oil to cook most of your favorite dishes.

What tips would you give parents on how to get their picky children
to enjoy eating healthy foods?
Create an environment in your home where healthful food is celebrated and explored. Involve your child in the process. Go to the green market or produce section and let your child pick out a vegetable. The great thing about ActiFry is that it is kid-friendly so they can be involved in the cooking. They can put the ingredients in, watch it spin, see how the raw ingredient changes into delicious food that is also nutritious.
Is there really such a thing as “good” fat?
Fat is an essential nutrient – we need some for survival—plus it helps us absorb the fat-soluble nutrients in our foods. But it is easy to overdo fat because it has twice the calories as carbohydrates and protein. The key is to get the right kinds of fat in the right balance. For most of us that means reducing overall fat intake while consuming more monounsaturated and Omega-3 fat. ActiFry can really help with this since its entire premise is that it uses less fat and can cook food with the healthiest oils such as olive and canola.
Can a healthier and craving-satisfying French fry really exist?
ActiFry only needs one tablespoon of oil—and it can be a healthier oil like canola—to make crispy fries that have 3% total fat per serving, compared to 16% in fast food counterparts. By cooking them in the ActiFry, you can now enjoy French fries more often because they are healthier than fast food fries.
