Cook at Home 3 Times a Week
Break out your favorite cookbooks, pots, and pans. "Cooking a meal at home not only leads to positive health benefits like reduced calorie and sodium consumption, but also to using healthier ingredients and creating a sense of togetherness that you don't always get when eating at a restaurant," says Michalczyk.
Plus, "cooking with a partner, a friend or family members is a great way to make fun memories in the kitchen, try a food you've never have before, and relieve stress," she says. These are all things that contribute to health and well-being just as much as food itself.
