Order delivery or whip up something in the kitchen? These pretty kitchen tools might just influence you to spend more time actually cooking and less time on those delivery apps.
Cooking at home with whole food ingredients means we’re much more likely to get major nutrition each week, a wider diversity of plants in our diet, and fewer ingredients that our bodies do better without. When time is limited, which it often is, turning to delivery or takeout is a dreamy short-term solution. But if you’re looking to build healthy habits that last, it’s important to put effort into enjoying the process of cooking for yourself.
For us, stylish little kitchen goods like these spark joy and keep us interested. Why not make great design a priority in the little daily chores of life? Whether that means this set of golden colanders or a simple gold clip rather than a chintzy plastic one, pretty kitchen tools can add a sense of delight to the smallest tasks and help us fall in love with cooking at home…
