What did you eat for dinner last night?
A burger and beer from the pub? Frozen pizza from a box? A rich meal at a fancy restaurant or takeout burritos from down the street? There’s a time and a place for all of these, but if you’re not happy to whip up your own grub, you are missing out on not only healthy eating, but better living.
Making your own food isn’t just a skill, and it’s more than just a hobby. It’s about making a connection between the elements of life and your ability to thrive. You can't always be happy, your family will go through struggles, you'll feel sick and weak at times, sometimes it might seem like no one wants to be with you.
But if you can cook, you'll never be separated from the stuff of life.
When you can walk over to the fridge with confidence, assess what you’ve got and where you need to improvise, and then throw together a satisfying meal - you’ve come to a place where you can always make yourself whole in a fundamental way.
