“Even if you made the worst 1st meal of your life, give yourself pat on the back and look at the positive side, you have finally decided to cook and take charge of your health.”

As a plant-based food educator, I often hear people complain that we don’t have time to cook, we don’t know how to cook, we don’t like cooking, and so on.Imagine that you are a good cook and you shall be! I honestly think everyone can cook you just have to try. You have to go in the kitchen and make it happen. Don’t be afraid to make a mess or cook something which is uneatable… this is a good start!
