In the past, I've waxed poetic about the joys of cooking at home. I enjoy cooking for several green reasons. It's less expensive than eating out (more green in the wallet) and it's healthier because I choose the food that will be served. I make sure we eat a healthy, portion appropriate meal. The pleasure derived from cooking is correlated to the tools at my disposal.
One of my new partners, Chefs catalogue, supplies the home cook with incredible cookware to make home cooking a genuine pleasure. I chose to partner with Chefs partially due a charity they are affiliated with, Operation Frontline, a groundbreaking cooking-based nutrition education program that teaches families how to prepare healthy, tasty meals on a limited budget. This is a proactive solution to the poor health partially caused by poor nutrition among many Americans.
Chefs also features many American made products, which I have highlighted. I strongly support buying domestically produced goods to stimulate our economy and also a lower environmental impact from less distance shipped.
The health of our bodies and our wallets depends on taking charge of what we consume and how we consume it. Cooking healthy food at home is a step in the right direction.
