The 4 Hearty Benefits of Home Cooking

home cooking

Are you afraid of your kitchen? Do you find cooking a strenuous activity? Well, here are four hearty benefits that can encourage you to begin your journey to home cooking!


It’s a fun stress reliever

Spending the majority of your day working in front of a computer, commuting, or being away from home can get mentally, emotionally and physically exhausting. That’s why cooking at home is the perfect stress reliever.

It’s been said that cooking is therapy; it eases tension and stress buildup because it helps break the routine of your day. Cooking requires your whole attention – preparing the ingredients, chopping, frying, boiling, blending, plating the food – they all have a soothing and meditative effect because it allows you to slow down and focus.

You can even do this with the family. Setting aside time so that the family can work together and prepare a meal gives you, your partner and the kids moments to catch up with their day and connect. You don’t even have to prepare something elaborate – easy ‘n tasty home recipes are the way to go for more #pinaSARAP moments!

On a serious note, cooking is used as a treatment in many mental health clinics. Its benefits are so powerful that it can help heal anxiety, depression and addiction. The entire cooking process helps boost their confidence by curbing pessimistic thoughts.

Notice your mood and vibe at the end of your cooking session. You’ll feel calmer and more relaxed. Plus, you get to enjoy the delicious fruits of your labor! The next time you need to get your head cleared, cook something.


It’s a healthier option versus ordering fast food and ready-to-eat meals

Everybody knows that fast food and ready-to-eat meals are chock-full of high-fat meat, refined grains, added sugar and fats. But they are cheap, yummy and very accessible. So we can’t blame people who choose to eat them over a home-cooked meal.

However, a healthy diet is necessary to maintain optimal body weight. If you’re eating fast food every day, you might want to reconsider your lifestyle. They can be a nice treat once in a while, but fast food shouldn’t be considered as a daily meal.

When you cook at home, you know where the ingredients come from because you bought them yourself! Always choose to buy high-quality ingredients so you can opt for a healthier lifestyle for you and your family.


You save money

Choosing to eat out doesn’t only affect your physical well-being, it also affects your financial state. Sure, fast food is cheap. But if you’re a regular customer, your transactions build up and can most likely exceed your weekly grocery budget.

When you prepare proper meals at home, you get to be in charge of your own food expenses. It allows you to get the best price on ingredients in the supermarket or the local palengke. Plus, you would be supporting the local farmers which is always a good thing.


You can get your creative juices flowing

Observe how grandmothers cook. They don’t adhere to a strict set of rules! Contrary to popular belief, cooking doesn’t have to be a step-by-step process (except for baking, of course).

One of the most fun and exciting things about cooking is that you can easily come up with your own recipe. If you frequent the kitchen, you start to get the hang of things. All it takes is practice and a little bit of patience.

Eventually, you’ll be creating dishes that your friends and family can look forward to.
