The benefits and joy of cooking together
The valuable, healthy, creative process of cooking together is rarely appreciated these days.
Most of us spend less and less time with our families as we juggle all that we sign up to do during our extra busy weeks. In taking advantage of our need to eat, by slowing down to make mealtime a chance for pleasure in our day, we form better, stronger relationships with our loved ones. Check out The Slow Food Movement which emphasizes this lifestyle.
Cooking together teaches teamwork, organizational skills and patience. It encourages creativity, self-confidence and self-esteem no matter what age, due to the tangible, real rewards that are produced in a short time period. It is vital to the well-being of a family as it becomes one of the strongest threads that holds the fabric of family and friendship together.
Eating well is essential to truly good health and well-being. Making and enjoying good food is essential nourishment for emotional and social bonds.
