    What is healthier to cook in, aluminum or nonstick?

    Either method is fine. What can change health outcomes more than the pan you cook with, would be what you are using to cook with as it relates to calories and fat. A small amount of non-stick spray such as PAM adds very few calories (6 calories in a one second spray) where a pad of butter or margarine...Read More

If the foods you are looking for (e.g. chicken, beef, rice, potatoes, bread, salads, etc.) are on the menu in any form, they can almost...Read More
