"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food"
Food is one of the necessities of life that is essential to our existence. Human beings finally began to settle down after the onset of agriculture- thus marking the end of their nomadic lifestyle. The keyword here is Agriculture. It was started to produce staple food items to meet the needs of the ever-increasing population.
As such, in the grand scheme of things, the food we see today has evolved over time. It has come a long way from being cultivated in the fields to being delivered directly to your homes.
We all remember our childhoods where we had to eat those “Special” dishes that were made with love and care by our mommy’s. These turned out to be much tastier than the other dishes. Why? Did it have a secret ingredient? Yes- the secret ingredient being it was homemade and cooked with utmost love and care by our mother’s. Such is the beauty behind homemade meals that, enjoying a good meal is like enjoying a good piece of art; as it takes skill and talent to cook something without actually studying expensive cookery courses. And the best thing? Whenever in the future, when you pass by any other homes or apartments elsewhere, and you feel the smells of the same homemade meals that your mom used to make you, you will be hit with a strong nostalgic feeling that instantly makes you want to go back home- see your mom and eat her tasty dishes all over again- even if you happened to be in college or married off and have kids of your own.
Well, as times moved forward and people began to have less time in their 24-hour schedule, they seemed to have forgotten all the virtues behind homemade meals. The society thought it would be cool to always eat from outside joints and hotels - all in the name of being busy to reach home on time. What society fails to realize is that homemade foods have their own set of advantages which includes:-
1.These are made with 100% Love and Care
2.The items and ingredients used will be of the finest standards
3.These are made to feed us and not make us feel sick
4.Our mothers won’t have materialistic thoughts when it comes to cooking for us- One can always expect the best.
5.No foods would be as healthy as those made by your moms.
