Sabita said: “Cooking is therapeutic.
It can take our minds off things.
We should try to have a least one meal with our family and really see what we eat, instead of poring over a book or checking our smartphones.
If we start cooking in the evening, our focus shifts from consumption to creation, which helps to rein in the cravings.”
