Vitamins and Nutrients

Do you know the difference? Vitamins ("vita" = life and "amine" = containing nitrogen) are organic compounds. Minerals are pure inorganic elements, meaning they are much simpler in chemical form than vitamins. All vitamins are essential to our bodies, whereas only some minerals are essential nutrients. Vitamins are vulnerable to heat, light, and chemical agents, so cooking, food preparation, processing, and storage must be appropriate to preserve vitamins in food. Minerals, on the other hand, are more stable to food preparation, but mineral loss can occur when they are bound to other substances in foods. Regardless of the differences, make sure you are getting enough of both! -Columbia University July 2015

Freeze Like a Pro

Freeze things flat and stack them. Whether it's soups, stews, or ground meat, the flatter and wider you can get them, the faster they'll freeze and defrost, which not only makes you more efficient, it also improves the quality of the food (the longer something takes to freeze, the more cellular damage it will suffer). - J. Kenji López-Alt "24 Essential Kitchen Tricks and Tips".
