Natural Solutions magazine says we should be cooking our food slower. Cooking meals over high heat can cause glycation, a process that causes the sugar in your food to stick to protein and fat molecules. The resulting sticky substance can gum up your arteries like sludgy oil can gum up your car’s engine. In turn, this clogging effect can contribute to common age-related ailments like diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. One easy way to slow down your cooking by using lower heat is to cook more meals in your crock pot. Not only does it use less heat, preparation is usually a lot easier and less time-intensive.
