A School Girl's Guide To Cooking

Updated: Sep 28, 2020

Cooking is something everyone has done before, maybe you cook for your family or just for yourself, you may have once done a cooking class as a child or put play dough in the microwave. Think about it, not only does cooking for yourself help you eat more healthfully because you're not eating out, but it also sends yourself a message that you are important. Cooking can also help raise self-esteem and confidence. Today I'm going to give you a guide to cooking.

1. Be fearless, when you're cooking you can't be scared of being cut or burned. When you get burned remove any clothing and jewelry on or near the burn, and immerse the affected area in cool water for 15 to 20 minutes. That dissipates heat, reduces pain, and minimizes swelling around the burn, then check the burn to determine whether you need to see a doctor but don't apply ice, it slows blood flow to the area and can damage tissue further.

2. Know what you're doing when cooking if you are unaware of what you are doing you may get seriously hurt. Did you know that by making better food choices, you might be able to control compulsive eating behaviors and weight gain? You might also experience feelings of calmness, high energy levels, or alertness from the foods you eat. What we eat affects how we feel.

3. Be careful what you microwave, there specific items that shouldn't be microwaved, for example, lettuce, avocado, metal or play dough. Did you know that cooking at home or other places are good for your mental health because cooking is an act of patience, mindfulness, an outlet for creative expression, a means of communication, and helps to raise one's self-esteem as the cook can feel good about doing something positive for their family, themselves or loved ones? That's all I have for today, sorry I didn't do much, I know I'm an author but I'm also still a child that sucks at paying attention to things
