How you eat the food, whether raw or cooked, is up to you. You are not obligated to cook our recipes exactly as directed. What’s most important is that you use the ingredients provided, to help you reach your goal and get all the important nutrients. And if you do change the preparation method, don’t use additional oil. Extra oil can lead to a much higher caloric value. This is the case, for example, when you fry food in a pan with oil instead of steaming or baking it in the oven.
Extra oil means eating extra calories – possibly more than you have in your calorie budget. In our view, the best methods for food prep are: boiling, baking or steaming.
