Home Cooking: A Call to Action
Some days, it’s just about getting a meal on table. It’s about getting the job done simply for nourishment. On these days the desire for elaborate dishes, fancy tableware and expensive ingredients take a back seat. This is when preparing a home meal is about what’s most practical, takes less time, and still feeds you/the family on all levels. Home cooking can be your saving grace. For the times when the daily grind almost gets the best of us, a little more planning and prepping in advance, will keep us ahead of the cooking game. On the most busiest of days, making dinner before or at sunrise is one way to catch our breath after the workday is done. It may just require us to reassess our priorities, strategize and of course, be present. It’s true. Home cooking requires some organizational thinking as any other tasks that require our attention.

Home cooking really is one of the most empowering activities we can engage in, and it’s finally getting the attention it deserves, because we deserve better. The reality, if not the statistics, may be alarming enough to move us to right action. I recommend reading the entire piece and when you do, please do come back and share your thoughts.
