I recently read a forward message which said that “somewhere between craving for pizza and craving for home made food” we become complete. How true it is!!! At the end of all day’s hard work, successes and achievement, all that makes one happy and complete is a healthy home cooked meal. I mean, that is what we toil and sweat for all through our life. A few decades ago, that is in the age of our grandparents, through out the world, cooking a healthy meal was the woman's job. Even if she was working, cooking was still her job. The boys in the house would move out from their parents only after they have a job and are married. It was believed to be the correct way of living life, eating home made food and make life complete. Then, came an era, when the boys and girls moved out of the parental house to study and work in different places in the country or abroad. They would satisfy their hunger from the mess, hotels and instant foods like noodles, pizzas, burgers, etc. Though these were answer to the hunger, it was a big no to health. The increased numbers in obesity and diabetes and stomach infections are only due to this improper way of eating. And then, with the dawn of realisation, boys and girls decided to cook for themselves for a good health and they learnt to cook. Today is the generation of fitness and health. Individuals eat for nutrition and good health. One of the suggestions for all round fitness by nutritionist is to eat home cooked food. Besides this, girls and boys have realised the joy in creating something new with their own hands and the therapy associated with cooking. I am a mother of boy and I think, and many parents of the current generation would agree with me, that cooking is a compulsory learning art for every child, irrespective of being a girl or boy. I am glad that we have made a step towards that big change. It is really cute to see many youngsters and children cook a surprise meal for their loved ones on special occasions. It is definitely more endearing than any expensive present.
Considering the time restraint, and ease of cooking I have listed out few recipes both in vegetarian and non vegetarian that can be made quickly, easily and is filling and nutrient dense. Some of these have also been tried by my hubby.
“BACHELOR RECIPES” is just another heading; In fact it is a section of recipes that can be tried by the first time cooking enthusiasts. Do try all of these for your family and make your loved ones feel special. Cheers!!!
