In a busy society, taking time to get a home-cooked meal is not easy. The convenience and cheapness of fast foods paved the way for changing the eating habits of most consumers. However, these foods are usually high in sugar, sodium, and empty calories which can cause cardiovascular diseases. It can also lead to diabetes, obesity, and ultimately death.
Cooking the act of preparing food by understanding the ingredients and their usage or nutritional values. This process uses combination, mixing, or heating various foods.
