It’s the time of year that we all make New Year’s resolutions be more fit, get healthy, eat better, be nicer, save money, spend more time with family and friends and more. We get caught up in our own schedules and our kids’ schedules and so we often find ourselves eating out since it’s more convenient or have jumped on the home delivery Grubhub or Door Dash band wagon.
There’s one simple thing you can do that accomplishes many of those well-intended resolutions – and that’s to increase how often you cook at home. Cooking at home is one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself and your family. You put your love on the table not only because you’re preparing food for sustenance, but also because you naturally end up making healthier choices – more vegetables, less carbs and far less sugar and salt than takeout. Cooking at home will provide more nutritional meals for the people you love.
