Teach Your Children To Cook and Unleash Their Inner Super Hero

“Becoming a good cook will do more for your health, body composition, and longevity than any exercise routine, miracle drug, or “diet” in existence.

When you develop the ability to create fresh, mouth-watering, healthy meals for you and your family on command, you have a SUPER POWER.

In fact, a recent Cambridge study found that people who cook up to 5 times a week are 47% more likely to be alive after 10 years than their non-cooking peers.” From Abel James. Check out Abel’s cool website here.
