You know the type of people who are natural athletes? My brother is one of them. He has excelled at every sport he ever played. Then there’s me: the typical kid who was picked last at every single P.E. class. It didn’t really matter when my shoelaces came untied because, hey, I wasn’t really moving that fast anyway.
If you’re one of those people, don’t fret. There’s hope! Just like exercise, with cooking, every little bit counts. Every day that you make the effort to peel a carrot and chop an onion, brings you just a little bit closer to the end goal: good health.
This is our country’s reality – and probably a worldwide trend. But just as regular exercise remains an important part of efforts to protect our health, it’s important to keep cooking! It will be hard sometimes, but if you can prep some simple meals in advance and freeze them, or dedicate 20-30 minutes to chopping fruits and vegetables and storing them in the fridge, this may ultimately make your family healthier and happier.
