Guess, what is one of the best things you can do for your health?

Studies show that when you regularly prepare home-cooked meals, you're most likely to make healthier food choices. There are many benefits to cooking for yourself even if it does take a little extra time. Convenience food is typically high in chemical additives, hormones, sugar, unhealthy fats, and calories. Even in restaurants, we tend to eat way more than we should -affecting our waistline. As a child, I remember going to restaurants as a treat once or twice a year but now it is part of our culture - as a restaurateur I appreciate it but know as a society we've lost the art of cooking for ourselves.

By cooking for yourself you can know exactly what is going into your food - please read the labels! Preparing healthy meals can support your immune system, reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes, etc In the long term it can even help fight co like Alzheimer's. It also gives you control over the ingredients and portion sizes. On an emotional level, it is a good bonding time to spend with your family and knowing you are feeding them the very best. Some would even say it is a stress reliever.

Time-saving tips

If you don't have much time to cook and prepare, make bigger meals that you can keep leftovers for later in the week. I often do this with mince and roast chicken that is so versatile, then can be used in another format later in the week. Shop online so you gnitive declinedon't have to waste time going to the shops. Keep your meals simple but delicious. stock up on staples so you don't have to keep running to the shops and you can bulk out your leftovers.
