Cooking At Home: A Chore More Than A Hobby

Cooking At Home: A Chore More Than A Hobby
  • Many people see cooking at home as a chore rather than a hobby or a fun activity to do to save money and have a delicious meal at the same time.
  • Fast food and ready-to-eat dinners may save our time but they cause so many illnesses like heart diseases and diabetes.
  • The less time we spend cooking at home, the worse our diets become and the convenience is slowly killing us.
  • We cannot ignore the fact that if we choose to have better diets and eat healthier we have to make time for cooking.

  • Cooking at home isn't much of a hassle when you plan things ahead. Weekly meal plans exist and are a trend that's easy to follow.
  • Schedule it so it happens.
  • Home cooking includes investing in the right tools like quality knives, pots and pans because it makes cooking essentialy more fun to do. You can pair cooking while listening to music or a podcast, anything you enjoy doing.
  • Keep it realistic. You don't have to cook 90% of the time, set aside 30 mins for cooking and 10 mins for decluttering your fridge.
  • Keep it simple. Repeat often. You don’t get bonus points for complexity or variety.
  • Have 3-5 go-to recipes. The more you make a recipe, the easier it will become and the less mental resistance you’ll feel when you think about making it.
