Cooking Feeds the Mind
Cooking is part of a healthy lifestyle. Aside from feeding your body the nutrients it needs, cooking is a relaxing and enjoyable activity for many. The process of cooking eases the mind into a meditative state to ease out negative thinking, while the smells of food release feel-good endorphins to the brain. Also, cooking is a creative process. Psychologists have linked the ability for people to creatively express themselves with overall well-being.
