Presentation review: This for That

Eating at home has many benefits. Jasia Steinmetz, a professor at the School of Health Promotion and Human Development, gave a compelling presentation on fresh foods, family values, and cooking tricks. Home-cooked foods are typically more nutritious and have fewer calories than eating out. Eating at home also helps instill family values and cultural heritage in your family.

A good tool for cooking at home is meal planning. By planning some meals for the week, you can add variety, help spice up the routine, and make good food choices. It is also beneficial to stock up on the foods you like and want to eat more of. Keeping healthy foods in the front of your cupboard or refrigerator helps you make good food choices. By choosing seasonal and local foods you can support the community and save on costs. Local foods are more nutritious and have a bolder taste. It is important to remember that quality, not quantity, provides more satisfaction when it comes to food. Cook double batches of food in order to help save energy and food costs and give you leftovers to save on time later. Every meal is a memory, cooking is a fun and fulfilling adventure for you and the ones you love. Here is the presentation and tip sheet for healthy substitutions.
