Expert Tips

Vegetables offer a host of nutrients including vitamins A, C and folate to name a few. Be sure to get at least 3 to 5 servings of veggies daily.

Sesame oil is pressed from sesame seed. Pale and nutty, light sesame oil is used for cooking. Because it smokes at a high temperature, light sesame oil is great for frying . Dark sesame oil has a deeper color and a stronger flavor; it is used for seasoning.

Toasting sesame seed brings out its nutty flavor. To toast sesame seed, place it in a small skillet; stir over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes, or until it is light golden brown.
