- Nutrition Tips (Gloria Tse - Accredited Practicing Dietitian):
- Heating tomatoes can release more lycopene and make it easier for the body to absorb. Asparagus is rich in carotene. Cooking with oil will make carotene easier to absorb. Carotene promotes upper respiratory tract health and boosts the immune system. Tofu is a low-fat protein that is better for the heart and blood vessels compared to meat. The Airfryer can roast the tofu dry without using a lot of oil. The tofu will taste crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Airfried tofu has around 60% less fat compared to those made with conventional cooking methods.
