Cooking is probably the most important thing you can do to improve your diet. What matters most is not any particular nutrient, or even any particular food: it’s the act of cooking itself. People who cook eat a healthier diet without giving it a thought. It’s the collapse of home cooking that led directly to the obesity epidemic." - Michael Pollan
I believe the best way to nourish our bodies is by being connected to the food we eat. That means basic home cooking using fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. Cooking is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your family. Cooking is about sharing and keeping with traditions, but also about trying something new on occasion- an herb you've never had before, a cuisine you've never experienced, or even a cooking technique. It doesn't take much time or skill to prepare simple, basic meals when you use quality ingredients, it isn't expensive, and it's better for your body than fast food.
