Nutrition in a Nutshell

Nutrition in a Nutshell

Whether you’re cooking at home to get fit, save money, or simply because you love to cook, nutrition is a hidden aspect of cooking that is probably in the back of your mind. Calories, nutrients, diet fads – there is a ton of information circling the internet right now, and (especially when it comes to diet fads!) not all of it is true.  I’d like to dedicate this corner of Salt and Skillet to nutrition education.

Below you’ll find information on macronutrients, micronutrients, and some other extra helpful nutrients! You consume these things every day, and they are what makes your body work. Feel free to click through to learn about what the nutrients are, how they help our body, and where to find them in your diet!
