You knows it's healthier. You know it's less expensive. But sometimes it can be hard to find that extra time after work to prepare a nicely cooked home meal. But as Dr. Mark Hyman suggests, taking that extra 15 minutes to prepare a home-cooked meal can do the world in difference for both your life and the life of your children.

CNN's American Morning has the reasons why: "Home-cooked meals increase family, community health."

  1. Time at the Table

    Thank you TJ & Dr. Hyman for bringing this to the font of the line. We are a nonprofit organization that focusses on reconnecting families around the dinner table. 1 in 5 meals are eaten in an automobile. Eating dinner as a family is more of a factor in a child's well being than gender, race, or economic status. The average American spends 2 hours a day on the internet alone, so we have time. It's just readjusting and making a commitment. For more info on how to RECLAIM DINNER visit http://timeatthetable.org

    I cook (and I slave, wahhh!) and he still wants McDonalds. I am a good cook who knows how to apply the seasoning, I buy organic when I can, and I cook what he says he likes. But he Still. Wants. McDonalds. It is maddening, and the leftovers are beginning to take it personally.
