Is it only me, or does anyone else still love the old school way of cooking? I just feel grinding spices on a stone, or pounding fufu in a mortar is my culture. It defines me and where I come from and I don’t want to part from it! It is true that new high-tech kitchen utensils really, I mean really facilitate the work AND cut down time spent in the kitchen but I can’t close my eyes to the benefits of traditional cooking methods.
The calorie lab says 102 calories are spent per hours when we cook or prepare food for 1 hour. Though I couldn’t find out how many cals/hr doing vigorous activities like pounding and grinding burns, I believe that doing these chores during cooking will surely increase calories burnt by another 100 cals. I imagine burning 200 extra calories a day while doing my favorite activity: cooking. That’s definitely a good reason to continue using old-school cooking methods.
So call me old school if you please, I’m in it 100% 🙂 .
I’ve been using my hand juicer for ages. I love the color and the way it extracts all the juice and the fruit flesh! Here’s a refreshing blood orange juice you can make at home for those days when the sun is unbearable hot!
Happy and healthy cooking xoxo
