Do you want to know the key to health? It’s learning how to cook. I get it… you’re busy. We’re all busy! Cooking may be the last thing you want to do when you get home from a busy day of work, going to the gym, volunteering, running errands, or whatever it is that fills your busy schedule. In Canada, approximately 29% of Canadians 18 and older are obese and 41% are overweight. Some more bad news: 8% of Canadian children are obese and 26% are overweight. Poor diet is one of the major contributors for these diseases. One of the reasons why poor diets are so common is due to a lack of cooking education. At a young age, we’re not exposed to experimenting in the kitchen, refining our knife skills and developing a taste for real food. By not including cooking in the education system, it’s not surprising that individuals in their 30s, 40s and even 50s don’t know how to cook for themselves. By learning how to cook, you’ll have a better idea of what exactly is on your plate, you can ensure that you consume enough fruits, vegetables, protein and healthy fats, and ultimately, you can live an overall healthier lifestyle while minimizing your risk for disease.
