The reason why you should cook your own meals as much as you can is because when you cook your own meals you know exactly what ingredients are in your meals.
Every meal that you eat that is not prepped and cooked by you is a sign of trust to the chef that you believe that what they’re giving you is nutritious, fulfilling, and not going to make you sick.
The reason why I cook most of my meals in because I can’t trust and one person. Talking also to the girl that won’t take both birth control and will do everything in her power to not enter a doctor’s office.
When it comes to cooking your meals I usually give out some quick advice and that simply would be to learn how to cook three basic meals. Meals that you can easily cook in your sleep and that you can prep and make a bunch of meals out of to have meals set for your week.
Once you have perfected making these meals you can edit their recipe more easily. This takes a lot of practice. Don’t give up, keep cooking! I like to help people conquer the ever so popular rice and beans with a side of meat, spaghetti, and mashed potatoes with some sort of vegetables.
These meals are easy, nutritious, and fulfilling. You will not go hungry if you learn how to make these things. And once you learn how to make these meals you can edit the recipe to try to change up sauces, vegetables, and mix up your meals to eat differently.
When looking for food at the grocery store I’m not one to go organic or gluten-free or anything like that. I know I’m going to live a long life and whether my food is organic or not at the end of the day, I’m still alive and so are my parents. I can only conquer so many problems in my life and I choose to not stress over food. At least today while I’m not loaded with money!
If you do choose to make more conscious decisions about where you get your vegetables, meats and other food you can definitely find more information on that throughout the Internet. But when it comes to food I don’t want to work for it I just want to eat my food.
When you cook more, you have more control over your life and health. With more control over your meals, you can choose your calorie intake and save big bucks.
It’s way cheaper to purchase groceries and prepare your meals than to buy food from different restaurants. Funny enough it’s basic culture in New York City to purchase food off the streets than to cook your own meals.
You don’t have to throw yourself into cooking right away, take it one step at a time. Learn one meal at a time. You will mess up but it’s okay to ask for help and keep trying. If not for your health, for your wallet!
