The kitchen – an intro

For me the kitchen was and is still a sign of luxury and richness. That is the concerned place where an elegant oven and large granite bench with wood cupboard and many machines and cooking tools and equipments. This would be a typical kitchen as the word would mean.  Although not everybody may be warranted such opportunity, the fondness of cooking and making healthy and good recipes seems to be inherent to some people regardless their financial and socioeconomic level. Cooking is an art, talent and science. The most noticeable reason why some people cook well, in my opinion, is that they really like it. These people are greatly good-spirited, generous and kind.

Being a science the cooking relies on the philosophy of promoting health on both spiritual and bodily levels. The eye eats, and so does the nose. It is not surprising to notice that the healthy food fulfills three basic criteria, a good shape, a good smell and a good taste. Accordingly, the food must comply with the current needs of the individual as whether to maintain good energy supply, exceptionally higher vitamins or to help overcome some illness. Indeed, such awareness of the healthy food and the diet manipulations that suit the different health and disease conditions should make a very valued difference in leading a happy and successful life. The term lifestyle is becoming more and more familiar and implies the impact of the usual life activities such as food, movement and free time on one’s health and happiness. In the past when people used to eat almost raw and little processed food and when they worked almost manually from the dawn to the sunset, they enjoyed much healthier and maybe also lengthier lives.

That is why deciding to cook and make food is a quite serious thing. It is even not less serious than conducting an experiment in the laboratory; kitchen safety, strict cleaning, cooking bench, work plan, time monitor, good observation, assessing results, feedback and continuous refinement. The question is not that one would be a professional cook but more to consider healthy food to maintain health and help overcome illness and as a means of fun for those who like doing it by themselves.

Tip: Cook only when you have the sufficient energy all through the whole job and of course when you have the good mood for cooking.

You know that feeling after doing something physically demanding, when you are so exhausted that you can barely move? Your muscles are sore, even tender. You may even have a headache from being over-tired, and you may have trouble sleeping, even though that’s all you want to do. Imagine feeling this way for weeks and months at a time. That’s pretty much how I felt around the time I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, around 17 years ago.

Millions of people in developed countries are now experiencing auto-immune disorders in record numbers. Recent reports indicate that around 5 million Americans may have fibromyalgia, an auto-immune condition that is characterized by muscle pain, fatigue, and “tender points” at the base of the neck, back and several particular places. When I saw the endocrinologist, I was told that the best thing I could do was to rest a lot and take a prescription…
