2) Cooking

Learning how to cook healthy meals and preparing them at home is great for the waistline, the budget, and family bonding. Cooking at home is the simplest way to start eating better. When you eat out, you can’t be 100% sure what’s in your food. When you eat at home, you know every ingredient. You can also control your portions at home, making it easier to maintain a healthy weight. Cooking at home is also a great opportunity to involve the whole family. Invite the kids to help out with certain tasks and make it a learning and bonding experience. Cooking for others has positive psychological benefits.
