How to Teach Healthy Eating Habits and Promote Home Cooking – Sarah Simmons


>>Erik: When teaching someone how to eat,
where do you start?>>Sarah: I have one friend that only wants
to eat ho-hos and Thai takeout and you know that’s a challenge because you have to essentially
reset someone’s palate. I have another friend that [laughs] I went into her kitchen and
she didn’t even have a knife and I mean there’s some basics that you need to have,
but it was a great learning experience because it made me rethink some things that we’re
doing with Me Times Three but at the end of the day you just need to get to know someone
and their point of view on food and I’m not trying to change the world and tell people
what they should and shouldn’t eat, I just want to through bringing people together around
food, show them a different story, because I can make Thai food that’s as good as the
take out.>>Erik: Bring back the restaurant experience
to what it used to be, a special occasion, maybe once a week, but not every night.>>Sarah: There are the restaurants that are
special occasion still, the fine dining, people aren’t eating there every single night.
It’s that niche that – you know and I’m all about capitalism but there’s that niche
of quick service restaurants that aren’t quite fast food and aren’t fine dining where
people are relying on those places to feed themselves. We are in a culture now where
that is the new family dinner, it’s either going there or bringing it home and I think
that’s a little scary because what happens when… that is the norm for the generations
younger than us, that cooking – what if it becomes extinct in the house? That’s
scary to me.
