Cooking can Help More Than Your Wallet
The total amount of money spent on food away from home versus eating at home has risen 94% since 2003.
And no, that’s not a typo!
Especially in America, many of us go out to eat anywhere from a couple times to 5-6 times a week.
And, even if (and that’s a big if!) we are all making healthy choices when we go out to eat, we are still missing out on incredibly benefits. Not for our physical health, but for our spiritual nutrition.
Why is cooking at home good for our spirituality?
Sometimes it can seem like a massive chore to cook meals for yourself at home, especially if you’re only cooking for one or two other people.
However, spending time in the kitchen can be an incredibly healing, soothing, and meditative experience.
At ITN, spiritual nutrition is broken down into three categories: personal spirituality, communal spirituality, and environmental spirituality.
And, truthfully, cooking at home can nourish every single one of these areas!
What happens if I don’t know how to cook?
In this episode, ITN Founder and CEO Cynthia Garcia shares her personal experiences with transforming her approach to cooking.

However, she learned how to get in the right headspace and take things slow in order to take advantage of the several benefits of cooking at home. Listen in to see how her advice can help you, too!
