When women left the kitchen and entered the workforce in the early 1900’s, they made great strides in equality. They supported their country during the war and proved that they were capable of doing the same, or similar, work as men.
Unfortunately, when they hung up their aprons, they left behind thousands of years of traditional healing recipes, and this has detrimentally impacted the quality of our health.
We stopped eating home-cooked food and started eating more processed, mass-produced food, and the results have been disastrous!
Over the past 80 years, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in preventable diseases across the board; cancer, heart disease, stroke, allergies, auto-immune conditions, thyroid disease and many others.
George Ohsawa, founder of Macrobiotics, taught his students that the person who cooked food for the family had the most important job in the house, as they were directly responsible for the health, or lack of health, of the family members.
With our current high rates of disease, it’s time for us to get back into the kitchen to start reclaiming our health.
The good news is, cooking is no longer considered “women’s work.” With the explosion of cooking shows on every channel, it’s now considered sexy for both men and women to get into the kitchen and cook up a storm. The key here is to shut off the television, get up off the couch, and GO into the kitchen where you can do the entire family the most good.
