The new year brings about a lot of resolutions, many of which revolve around becoming a healthier and more active person. And while taking up a new type of exercise is a common activity in the new year, another resolution can serve even more health benefits: cooking. And although cooking a multi-step recipe can seem like a daunting task, it can be so worth it in the end when you have a delicious and nutrition-packed meal that you made yourself.
When learning how to cook, it’s common to have a lot of mistakes made. The most important thing to remember is not to give up, as learning to cook can ensure a life of health and delicious meals. So while you take a crack at cooking your very first meal, take solace in the fact that you aren’t alone when you burn a dish or cut your finger.
The team at Postmates knows how seriously you take your health, so much so that a mistake in the kitchen can lead to tears or anger. In fact, 8% of consumers surveyed said they would skip eating altogether because of a cooking fail. While the emotions are certainly understandable, it’s important to note that skipping a meal is harmful to your health. Instead, why not send out for a smoothie instead? That way you can still get those veggies in without burning your hand or over salting your food.
While you work on getting closer to your health goals, remember that practice makes perfect and screw ups are part of the journey. Already a health nut or cooking expert? Share your favorite healthy recipe or cooking tip down below and help out your fellow readers!
