Why You Hate to Cook and What to Do About It via Summer Tomato

Have you ever read something and thought that the writer put into words something you believe, have been thinking or have been trying to say? That used to happen to me all of the time when Brad Warthen was still writing editorials at The State, but it now happens a lot with Darya Pino aka Summer Tomato.

Case in point: Ten Reasons You Hate to Cook (And What to Do About It). It’s a great read for those of us who weren’t born with a silver spatula in our hand!

Two years ago, when I made my transition to healthier eating, I was at a loss when it came to preparing my own meals. So used to opening a can or speeding through a drive-thru window, I thought I hated cooking. My biggest problem was number six, having an inadequate pantry. I swear, there was one week that I went to the grocery store every day, including one day that I went to four stores looking for one ingredient.

My mother and sister are now going through the twelve-week plan at Doctors Wellness Center, and both of them are finding it challenging to prepare the healthiest foods. I dedicate this blog post to them!

Coming soon, a post about my now very adequately prepared pantry!
