Doing This One Thing Could Lower Your Risk Of Diabetes

If you needed some motivation to actually cook something from all those Pinterest boards you created, this might be it.

According to a study from Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, people who cooked meals for themselves at home about 11 to 14 times a week were 13% less likely to develop Type-2 diabetes.

While we would hope this percentage would be a bit higher, this is just one of the many benefits of preparing your own meals. Cooking at home helps you avoid many of the highly processed ingredients, sugar, and unhealthy fats found in fast food, which is always a good thing.

Other bonuses of dodging takeout include maintaining a healthy weight, reduced risk of heart disease, and feeling happier — all great reasons to get in the kitchen!
