7 reasons I prefer to make my own food!
1) I prefer to know the source of my produce!
The fact is that the vast majority of restaurants do not sourse genetically modified foods and yes, organic foods! Since I am vegan I won’t even touch on where a huge portion of the restaurant meat is coming from!
2) Its expression of creativity!
I consider my food to be “edible art”! I absolutely LOVE creating beautiful living food to nurture my body with!
3) Its faster!
This meal took me 3 minutes to assemble! Did I mention I followed it with vegan homemade cookies that I whipped up this morning?
4) Preparing my own food allows me to tune into my body more!
When I prepare my own food I can really tune into what my bodies needs and desires are instead of being limited to a menu!
5) All my friends eat sunshine too:)
The fact of the matter is that the vast majority of my girlfriends also prepare their own food 90% of the time! We call ourselves “sunshine warriors”! We know that food is mood and that in order to FEEL good we must eat good too!
6) It saves money!
If I spend $150 at the farmers market or grocery store I know that my food will last the entire week! Thats way more bang for your buck than dining out on a consistent basis!
7) I get joy out of creating living creates for friends and family!
It’s true…nothing makes me happier than creating a meal that I know without a doubt will nourish my loved ones from the inside out!
BONUS ~ I KNOW HOW THE FOOD IS PREPARED!
Lets face it troop! We cannot be too careful these days! Have you ever looked at the amount of salt that is in a restaurant meal? Are you lactose intolerant? I guarantee you the foods you are eating not only contain gluten AKA GLUE, but also have traces of dairy and are cooked in fats that should NEVER be heated! Educate yourselves and get to town in that big beautiful kitchen you just remodeled! Or your college dormitory:) Both will work!
