The cook shared
three big keys so that healthy cooking is also affordable, in the face of criticism that links healthy food to expensive food. In the first place, he proposes "forgetting food" miracles, which are not within the reach of all pockets, such as quinoa.

defense of local products, since they are not only cheap, but also contribute to supporting local businesses, such as legumes and lentils. “They are superfoods that are not flashy, but in which we must bet on traditional foods,” he says.

Second, Verona put by the
«organization» as a key formula to save on food, dedicating one hour a week to making a shopping list, which must be - he added - "generic", where concepts such as oily fish, legumes and fruit are included. As a premise, Verona encourages going to the local market with "an open mind" and asking for seasonal and offer foods, which fall within the three proposed groups.

And, finally, the third key, the cook and nutritionist made a passionate defense of the markets and local commerce against large surfaces, because in local businesses we have the "trust" of their owners. «
Merchants advise realistically the richest and cheapest foods," he said. For her, the local market is a guarantee of food at good prices and healthy, in its maximum flavor splendor».
