Cooking More Makes You Eat Healthier

Are you trying to do more cooking in your life? Are you also trying to eat healthier? If you answered yes to both of those questions we have some great news for you. You can actually kill two of those birds with one stone. Indeed, the truth is that when you cook more, you actually eat healthier, and here’s why.

You’re More Aware

The first reason cooking more makes you eat healthier is because you’re painfully more aware of every little thing that you eat. It’s a lot easier to eat a batch of cookies when you weren’t the one who added all of that sugar to the batter, so you can play the whole “ignorance is bliss” game. But the opposite is also true when you cook more, meaning you’ll be more careful about the different things you eat.

You Develop a Love For Food

In addition, you’ll start to also develop a much stronger love for food. We mean this in the holistic sense, where you begin to appreciate the power of healthy, well-cooked food—as opposed to just loving the idea of eating everything without thinking. This doesn’t mean you’ll never eat anything unhealthy again. It just means that as you love your food more, you won’t abuse it in the same way.
