Why I Love Pots and Pans

Pots and Pans

There really is a simple answer to this statement.

It is, “For The Love of Cooking!”

Learning to cook new dishes has been such a fun adventure.  Don’t be afraid to try new dishes.  If you love to cook, adventure out.   To take FRESH ingredients,

And having the ability to “Create” a tasty meal.  Learning to cook a meal with the pots and pans in your kitchen can be very therapeutic.  it is great for down time, after a crazy busy day.  Plus, you are in control of what you are putting in your body.

You might say, “Well, I don’t know how to cook?”  It is so easy to learn.  There are so many sources for you to learn from.

There is “The Food Network – Cooking Channel”

What is great about them, is you can also search them online.  I have discovered a great many new dishes, and learning how to create them, because of their site.

Another is YouTube:

One of my favorite people on you tube, that I have really enjoyed is Gordon Ramsey.  He has such great tutorial videos, so quick, and so easy.

You might say, “But I can’t Even Boil Water!”

There is a video for that.  Plus many writings in various cook books on how to, “Boil Water!”

It is a great starting to point in the kitchen on learning how to use your pots and pans.  And then learning to cook healthy foods.   And then share the food that you cook with those that you love.

I guess one of my fondest memories growing up was hanging out in the Kitchen with the family at Grandmas house, as food was being prepared for Supper.   Being with your family is another great benefit of booking.   Get everyone involved:

To cook fresh is the best:

Everyone has heard that eating fresh foods is “better” for them, but do they know why? What’s the difference from a tomato from the grocery store vs. one grown in a garden (or purchased at a local farmer’s market)? There are many advantages to eating healthy, and immune boosts and good moods are only the beginning.

Points to Ponder:

The benefits of fresh:

  • Purchasing and eating freshly-grown fruits and vegetables is the best way to ensure no preservatives, chemicals, or dyes have been added to your food.
  •  Produce actually loses its nutritional value over time, so the quicker it’s eaten, the more nutrients that can be gained from it.
  • It tastes better!

Why to avoid packaged:

  • Foods that have been canned, bagged, frozen, etc. have been enriched with chemicals known as preservatives in order to prolong their shelf life.
  •  These types of foods often contain other additives such as hormones, dyes, artificial flavors and sugars, etc.
  • Consuming these additives makes it harder for a digestive system to do its job. Chemicals that are unknown to the body prolong the digestive process and keep actual nutrients from being digested. (That is also why people get hungrier faster after eating a healthy meal.)
  •  Bottom line, if it’s full of chemicals, it’s not good for you.

Interesting fact:

  • Microwaving food alters its chemical make-up, making it equally as hard to digest as those foods full of preservatives and additives.

A consistent diet that includes fresh foods will provide a person with more energy, both physically and emotionally, and a healthier lifestyle overall. So the next time a new recipe or meal idea comes along, remember what’s more important: foods that will last, or a lasting nutrition.

I would encourage you to make the time to learn to use the “Pots and Pans” you have in your kitchen.
