Cook at Home: Healthier You, Healthier Planet

I've been a big fan of Mark Bittman for a few years now. The New York Times columnist, author, and advocate preaches a simple but powerful message: fill your plate with more veggies, know where your food comes from and how it's produced, make less of an impact on our planet. Food Matters is a quick read espousing these principals, and he's now come out with The Food Matters Cookbook. (I just ordered it yesterday. I'll let you know what I think!)

One way to improve your health (and the health of the planet) is to cook at home. In this article from the NYT, Mark offers this solution to those who say they can't cook or don't have time: "a cooking repertoire of three basic recipes can get anyone into the kitchen and beyond the realm of takeout food, microwaved popcorn and bologna sandwiches in a few days." Check out the article to learn which three basic recipes he stands behind.

Here's to a 2011 full of delicious, home-cooked food!
