Home cooking is best - wellness challenge


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

ASDA's monthly Wellness Challenges invite you to change or take on a behavior in a way that will positively affect your well-being. The April challenge focuses on improving your physical well-being by cooking and eating more homemade meals.

The drive-through and the food delivery guy seem like convenient options after a long day in class or clinic. But you’re not doing yourself any favors health-wise when you rely on restaurants for regular meals.

Home-cooked meals tend to include fresher ingredients and fewer preservatives. We also tend to eat more reasonably sized portions at home. It’s significantly cheaper to prepare meals at home than it is to get take-out every night. And it can be a wonderful social activity that brings friends and family together.

Your challenge for April is to eat home-cooked meals for 10 days in a row. With planning, this is an easy way to eat healthy, have fun in the kitchen and save some money. We've got some suggestions to help you make it through: https://www.asdanet.org/index/dental-student-resources/health-and-wellness/wellness-challenges
