-You check the nutritional information before you buy the food?

 -How much fat and calories are in the products you buy every day? 

These are some questions that even I did every day, until I learned that what I wanted to know is found in the nutritional information on the back of each box or package.

This table shows the total content of calories and fat per serving and what is even more important tell us the exact amount to consume.

We must educate in this area, to maintain a healthy and balanced diet, especially if you are watching your weight.

I advise you to look in the pantry and review the products and their nutritional information to be more aware of what you buy and consume.

Remember do not buy to buy, you just have to learn how to eat better.

I highly recommend the following steps to be taken before freezing vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and zucchini.

1. Cut off the vegetables in the same size.
2. Cook for one minute in salted boiling water.
3. Move the vegetables to a bowl filled with ice cold water, this stops the cooking immediately.
4. Place on paper towels to remove as much water as possible.
5. Spread on a tray and place in the freezer for half an hour.
6. Store in plastic bags and freeze completely.

Can last between 3 to 6 months.

This is the method I personally use to freeze my vegetables.

If you like flavored oils such as garlic, rosemary, chile peppers, etc.  This is what you need to do: in a saucepan over medium heat add 1 cup of oil 4 sprigs of your favorite herb or 5 garlic cloves, allow to boil.

Remove from the heat and let cool.
Ready just pour it in a bottle and refrigerate.
This will last about a month.
