Decluttering, hands down, is one of the best therapies ever. More space, less furniture. More life, less deadlines. The generation today understands the value of quality over quantity and believes in adding more value to every aspect of their lives, instead of trying to quantify them to measure their worth. Basically it’s all about the experience and not the number of experiences. In various art movements, minimalism is a concept that promotes the idea of living with less than a hundred things. This includes the bare minimum basics.
Same goes for food and food habits. The current evolution in food culture emphasizes on the inclusion of various spices, sauces and flavors for the experience they bring with it. Such foodie experiences, once in a while, can boost your mood and give you the necessary change you need from your regular food. What one doesn’t realize is, the spices and ingredients in most of these processed foods can play with our hormonal balance, affecting our emotions, moods and sentiments.
Minimalism in food is a simplified approach to cooking your daily meals wherein you strike the balance between the time, convenience and ingredients required to cook a particular meal. The idea is to make your favorite meal with minimum organic ingredients without having to compromise on the taste. Pros? Innumerable. Cons? None.
Here are seven advantages of going minimal while cooking.
