In today's episode we talk about cooking from scratch. More important than the things you have are the skills you develop.
When you cook from scratch, your food storage is more versatile. You can make a lot of things from simple ingredients. Simple ingredients means fewer preservatives which equals better health. It's important to know what's in your food and cooking from scratch means not only do you know what's in your food, but you might even know where it came from and how it was produced/grown/processed.
It's way more cost-effective to cook from scratch. Lindsay makes meal plans every week. This helps her no what to buy from the store so we can cook from scratch. Some of the most common things we make from scratch are: biscuits, pancakes, cornbread, cookies, brownies, cakes, pizza, gravy, soups, stir-fry, stroganoff, eggnog, and lots more.
What's even better than cooking from scratch is making a meal that you grew and processed yourself. There is truly a sense of independence and liberty that I wish more people could feel.
