According to research, only 10% of Americans say they love to cook, while 45% hate it and 45% are lukewarm about it. But if your New Year’s resolution is to eat healthier, you may need to make friends with the kitchen. According to Dr. Stephen Juraschek, an internist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and an instructor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, if you want to eat healthier, the most important thing to do is start cooking your own meals. “Home-prepared meals are a key feature of healthy eating,” Juraschek says. “The only time you have agency over what you’re eating is when you’re doing the purchasing and prep.” (Time)
