I know that will sound weird I know :D but sometimes I'm rumbling and no way to survive than pig out! that seldom occurs but well, sort of jubilant.
When I need some energy I would preferably go for some potatoes and here we go, I should peel and boil them or maybe grill them, em I would prefer the second one. every meal it be my diary is comprised vegetables, thus I rinse them up. I avoid acidy food because with researches conducted It is believed that acidy foods (not all of them) can make you older faster than ever! That's why I would go for foods with a neutral Ph level.
I use pure olive oil because that contains some essential nutrients to cover my body needs.
, I'm not a true fan of meat or fish! I see people going for it, in fact they wolf down everything! You know, what's important here ,it is the way these bad habits spills them over into sth like zombies and they can't control their emotions and thoughts. One question here: How do you like to be in your life? 1. Chilled 2. Full of anxiety. If you want to find your way of life, just have a look to the other animals for example a cow,. A cow we know it as a chilled animal barely disgusting and meanwhile a lion, we count it as one of the wildest animals here. That's the way our diet affects our lives.

I cook food when my mother is not at home , I cook food for family more than my friends. I enjoy preparing grill dish;

I love cooking. When weekend i spend most of my time in the kitchen.

I do not cook because it takes a lot of time. My wife does it.

One of the dishes I most enjoy preparing is....
Fancy paella!?

I cook every day. I prefer to cook for my friends, because I make dish very different, creative and newfangled with them. The thing I most enjoy is prepare dessert, because it's my favorite part of meal.

I cook daily due to I like eating fresh. I rarely buy prepared food or junk food so I have to cook for my self. I would like to cook for my family but they live very far from me, however, if they were near, my mum does not let me cook and she prepares whatever I like. Therefore, my friends are lucky. normally I cook different lamb or chicken stews with rice, roasted fish and chicken, raw or steamed vegetable salad, some seafood pasta, etc.

I cook almost every day in my home, I cook more for my family than for my friends. I enjoy preparing pies, grilled meat, pizza, pasta and salads the most but I also prepare "milanesas"(is a typical plate here in Uruguay and is made of tiny slices of meat, breadcrums and beaten eggs) whit potatoes purée.

I cook daily. I'm a vegetarian, so I make a lot of soups, vegetables like zucchini, aubergine, spinach .. with rice, sweet potatoes, pasta and so on. And I love spices, especially italien and arabic.
