My adorable sister Stephanie teaches Home ec (well that's what I call it but I hear that's not cool!) Sad thing is that most high schools are doing away with classes that teach cooking and how to rum a household (it is far to "mid century" to be trendy!) and now we are left with people in their 20's and 30's who don't know anything about proper nutrition. Not only am I talking my game on the road but I am back up on my soap box!!
Hillari Dowdle wrote this wonderful article in Cooking Light Magazine that asked the question "Cooking and Nutrition skills are crucial to a healthy, happy life. So why don't schools teach them?" Read on....very thought provoking! So my faithful blog readers.....did you have home ec? Who taught you about cooking and nutrition? With our changing world and the lack of "slow foods" in our homes (this would be the way my Mom cooked "back in the day" when it wasn't chic!), who is going to teach tomorrow's young professionals on what's good to eat to live that long, healthy life? Does anyone wonder what's going to happen to a generation that lives on drive thru or microwave cuisine?
So.....read on and post your thoughts?
