Day 295- Nutrition Bites

How to Cut the HCAs
1-Marinate meat for 40 minutes can eliminate HCAs by more than 90 percent. 
2-Microwave meat first for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, discard the juices, and then the meat's creatine and amino acids will be gone.
3-Seafood has less HCAs than meat and poultry. 
4-Keep meat moist by not overcooking.
5- Bake, roast or stir fry because you generate less heat than grilling or barbecuing. 
6- Cook in a liquid and you will not generate HCAs because the temperature never tops the boiling point. 
7-Flip frequently and you will reduce the surface temperature of the meat.
8- Eat your veggies such as veggie burgers and cooked vegetables to generate little or no HCAs
