In a recent interview, I was asked if I think that there's an inverse relationship between poor health and good quality cooking. Here is the text of that interview: Interviewer: Do you think that there's an inverse relationship between poor health/obesity and good quality cooking?
Anna Maria: Definitely! There should be more education on healthy eating. I know there are so many different opinions among nutritionists. Now is the turn of Atkins. But I think the truth on feeling well and eating well is not in eliminating this food or the other, or in starving your body, but in few simple points:
1. Eat everything 2. Eat balanced varied food within the day as much as possible 3. Eat in moderation 4. Eat fresh food avoiding pre-cooked meals 5. Read the labels to learn what's inside your food 6. Cook your own food 7. Cook simple ingredients 8. Drink a lot of water, a moderate alcohol, but avoid sodas 9. Avoid too much of addictive food (chocolate, sugars, caffeine) 10. Share your food with friends and enjoy the company of others When I answered the question I started listing a few simple points. I thought they are important steps for all of us to follow in order to eat good meals and stay healthy. In reality, there is much more to it than what I was listing. There is also a lot of confusion.

I think it is important to reflect and put some common sense back into the subject. Click on the links above to read the articles.
