I took the pledge.
I pledge to cook four more meals this September. I pledge to pass by Chipotle and Whole Foods and cook dinner at home instead. If 10,000 people pledge to cook just four more meals next month, that means 40,000 fewer meals eaten out. What does that look like?
- A savings of up to $1 million
- 5 million fewer calories consumed
- 20,000 more hours spent at the table
Cook Smarts is launching a Meal Planning Awareness program to help home cooks conquer their financial and healthy challenges, while reducing the strain on environmental resources. The goal is to teach home cooks how to easily plan delicious and healthy meals for the week in about 30 minutes, which is less time than it takes to eat just one meal out!
It's time to reclaim dinnertime. What's your meal planning awareness? Did you know...
Shoppers spend 40% more at the store when they shop without a grocery list.
Only 23% of meals include a vegetable.
28% of Americans say they don't know how to cook.
25% state they don't cook because they don't want to clean up.
28 million Americans eat McDonald's everyday.
On average, sharing 3 or more family mealtimes per week reduces the odds for children and adolescents being overweight by 12%, eating unhealthy foods by 20%, and disordered eating by 35%.
Jess Dang, founder of CookSmarts, is on a mission to help you live happier, simpler, smarter in the kitchen by creating content that inspires, educates, and empowers the everyday home cook. Think of her as your personal kitchen cheerleader. Her goal is to get 10K pledges for a total of 40K additional meals cooked.
