You Don’t Know How to Cook or You Don’t Have Time to Cook

Are you too busy to cook?

Are you scared of cooking?

Do you think, “Can I really cook myself a good meal late in the evening when I’m tired from work or a day running around with the children?”

Do you read cooking magazines and watch cooking shows on TV and think, “If I can’t cook that way, I don’t even want to try?”

A lot of people don’t know how to cook. Or if you do, they can’t find the time. Maybe they never had the opportunity to see home cooking in action or simply weren’t interested in learning at that time. Whether you have a full-time job or course load or are a busy parent, carving out time to shop and cook can be a challenge.


Cooking for yourself or your family doesn’t have to feel like an overwhelming project. Even without much cooking experience, you can turn out quick, simple and delicious meals that are satisfying to your body and soul.

Cooking doesn’t have to be hard. I’ve never taken a cooking lesson in my life, but I was able to learn how to cook by reading cookbooks (and making lots of mistakes). Once you try out a few simple recipes, you’ll gain some confidence in your cooking skills and a sense o empowerment over your food life. When you cook, you have control over the food you put on your plate and in your body. Cooking, like most things, tales a little preparations, patience and practice. But once you start to confront your fears, you will be amazed at what you can do.
