The advantages of cooking yourself

  1. More and more nutritionists say: cooking your own, with pure unprocessed ingredients, is the most healthy for humans. These are the benefits of cooking yourself.

1. You are in control

  1. When you cook yourself, you have control over what you add to your dishes. How much sugar, how much salt and how much fat, for example. In addition, you do not use dyes, fragrances or flavorings in your own kitchen. This is the biggest advantage over ready-made products. The food industry generously scatters salt and sugar and uses many aids. The dishes that you make yourself have a much purer taste.

2. Cooking yourself makes you aware

  1. Go and bake your own cookies. You can then see exactly how much butter, flour and sugar (or dates, or honey) go through the dough. That makes you aware: you are less likely to grab another biscuit.

3. Cooking yourself is cheaper

  1. Imagine making a farmer's omelette with a bag of pre-cut vegetables and a bag of 'mix for farmer's omelette'. That will quickly cost you - apart from the eggs - € 2.50. It is much cheaper to cut a leek and bell pepper yourself and add some herbs to the omelet. This applies to many products from the supermarket: making it yourself is often cheaper. Please note: this rule does not apply to unhealthy products (such as cookies, chips, frozen chips and pre-seasoned kilo bangers)! So don't let that price difference fool you.

4. Cooking yourself costs energy (nice!)

  1. Shopping at the market, kneading dough, cutting vegetables, stirring in the pan: it all costs energy and therefore calories. Purely by preparing your food you are already on the move and you therefore already use extra energy: a bonus!

5. You add a secret ingredient

  1. When you cook yourself, you add something extra to your food. And that is love and attention. You can of course shrug your shoulders about that, but really: you can taste the difference if you prepare something tasty in your own kitchen instead of ready-made from the supermarket. A bolognese sauce that simmers for hours will make the house smell delicious and make everyone feel like eating.

6. Cooked out? Good buying is also an art

  1. Cooking yourself really does have advantages. But most people don't feel like working in the kitchen every day. Certainly not if you are single. What is the solution then? Buy smart
