Taking time to cook for yourself in this busy world we live in shows how much you care about yourself and other people in your household. This is a form of self-care because of the health benefits as well as the psychological benefits. Being mindful of what goes into one’s body, mind and soul is very important. It is what goes inside that can determine what comes out of a person.
Cooking is like painting or writing a song. Just as there are only so many notes or colors, there are only so many flavors – it’s how you combine them that sets you apart. Wolfgang Puck
Everyone has their own taste buds and cooking gives you the opportunity to cook food according to your own. It also sets you apart. Even if two people use the same recipe, the taste is never exactly the same. Cooking calls for uniqueness and creativity; there are not really any bad flavors, only those that do not match your taste buds.
As a writer or freelance writer earning money to spend on eating in good restaurants can be difficult. Why not kill two birds with one stone; save money that you already do not have and buy healthy groceries to cook the food you like. Now practice self-care and save money at the same time.
It is free therapy with all of the benefits that come with it. Say YES to cooking.
