About this Offering
Cooking is an overlooked component of eating healthy. When you cook more, you have a more balanced diet.
Cooking gives you more control. For example, you can choose the quality and quantity of the foods that you eat. You can tailor it to fit your likes and your nutritional needs.
Cooking improves your digestion by creating a better connection to your food. For example, you signal your body to produce the gastric juices needed to break down your food simply by smelling and touching the food prior to you eating it.
