I love food, I love eating, and most of all, and I love to cook the food I eat. Cooking gives you the satisfaction of creating something delicious. Cooking is a wonderful way to express yourself creatively. Cooking also makes you popular—people love food and the people who give them food.
Cooking also gives you control over what you put into your body, which may be more important now than ever before. Teenage diabetes, namely Type 2 diabetes, is on the rise in the United States. Until recently, this was a disease rarely seen in children and teens. Now, with increasing obesity rates, young people are at much greater risk for weight-related diseases.
Take charge of what and how you eat! If you are a beginning chef or have been cooking for years, these books are for you. For more cooking inspiration, take a look at some of these food blogs written by teens!
