Good quality meats and poultry tend to be tender when roasted retaining moisture during the cooking process adding more flavor to the meat.  Traditionally roasting meats and vegetables were basted in lard, butter, and oil to prevent loss of moisture often leading to health complications. Air frying eliminates the fats during the cooking process by changing the cooking method used in the unit.

Lower Calories Roasting Meats & Vegetables
Roasting meats and vegetables is a good cooking technique used to lower calories while retaining moisture and flavor in foods we commonly consume.  Vegetables are naturally low in fat, high in fiber and nutritional value often eaten raw, stir fried or roasted with the addition of seasonings to enhance the flavor of the food. Vegetables are a good source of important nutrients including potassium, folate, fiber, vitamin A, and Vitamin C naturally low in calories.

Diets rich in potassium may help maintain a healthy blood pressure lowering the risk of heart disease.  Roasting vegetables in an Air Fryer oven offers alternative cooking methods for people who want to reduce calories eating healthy foods prepared without trans fats.

On average only 14 percent of Americans consume at least 2 servings of fruit and 3 servings of vegetables daily indicators that American adults should consume more healthy foods to promote good health. Experts recommended adults should eat 5 to 9 servings of vegetables per day consumed raw, roasted or steamed to retain nutritional value.

Preserve Fruit Naturally Dehydrating
Dehydrate fresh fruit is an excellent way to preserve fruits for future recipes, garnishes, and low calorie desserts.  Dried fruits are high in fiber, packed with antioxidants especially polyphenols. Polyphenols are antioxidants that may help prevent blood clots, reduce blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of heart disease.
