Back in January, there was a group of UBites who took on a Whole30 Challenge. For those of you who don't know what the Whole30 is, it is a 30 day hypoallergenic, paleo-ish diet. When I sat in on the last Saturday round-table meeting, Joanna asked the group "What did you get out of this experience?" The response that echoed most among the group? The 30 days re-invigorated the groups relationship with food. A large part of this is because in order to have a successful Whole30 experience, you are going to have to cook a bit.
So this got me thinking -- how often does the rest of the UB community cook? What is your relationship with your kitchen?
I am a huge advocate for taking some time to cook, even if its just a couple times a week. For those of you who rely on a daily trip to the ready made section of Whole Foods or restaurant hop, I challenge you to make one food from scratch this week. Change your relationship with something that can be a great source of health and pleasure.
