Cooking can change our lives.
Not only by the obvious fact that we practice something we are not used to, i.e. cooking.
Cooking can change our lives profoundly according to Michael Pollan, an American writer, journalist, activist, and professor of journalism at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.
The author argues that cooking is one of the simplest and most important steps people can take to improve their family’s health, build communities, fix our broken food system, and break our growing dependence on corporations.
I already mentioned some benefits of cooking in my Top 5 Reasons To Start Cooking post. What Michael Pollan does is looking at the issue from a much wider sociological perspective.
His insightful and inspiring lecture is a must for everyone who cares about himself, his family and humankind in general.
“Real men don’t cook” – I’ve heard this many times for the last few years.
Well, I’ll tell you this. Real men cook. Cockroaches don’t.
Stop buying. Start cooking.
