Mother cookers are a special kind of cook. They can whip up a meal impossibly quickly with seemingly nothing in the house!
The art of mother cooking is becoming a lost art. Its death is being hastened by fast food, takeout food and foolish notions about what’s fit (read: safe) to eat and what is not.
If we brought back and celebrated mother cookers there’d be fewer overweight mothers, fathers and children!
What distinguishes a mother cooker from a mother or a cook? These characteristics:
- Not afraid to use whatever is on hand to create a tasty meal
- Understands that balance and moderation isn’t necessary with every meal. Balance and moderation is a matter of how meals and snacks add up over the course of 2 or 3 days.
- Doesn’t preach about “healthy food and junk food.” Approaches and treats all food with neutrality.
- Would rather fix a meal at home than “grab something.”
Mother cookers give special consideration to their tools of the trade. Having the right tools is as important and having something to cook.
