Want to add a little spice to your life? This month – on whatever day you choose to celebrate Valentine’s, why not avoid the crowds, forget about the designated driver, skip the babysitter, put the kids to bed, and enjoy a quiet dinner for two in the warmth of your own home?
Here are 4 reasons to put on your aprons and get cooking! Together!
- Cooking is Therapeutic. According to Psychology Today, doing an activity – like cooking – that requires you to work with your hands and focus on one task at a time can help calm your nervous system, especially after a busy week. You can maximize those therapeutic benefits by sharing the experience with your partner!
- Cooking Builds Intimacy. Cooking can be a great way to get to know your partner better, especially if you’re used to eating out at restaurants or if only one of you is generally in charge of the cooking.
- Cooking Gets You Talking About Nutrition and Health. Research shows that we’re more likely to make manageable, sustainable lifestyle changes when we’re accountable to others. One of the best strategies for taking charge of your health and nutrition is working with your partner to plan, cook, and enjoy healthy meals at home.
- “Kitchen Foreplay” is Fun! You can work together to plan, shop, and prep your special dinner together, or you can take advantage of SupperWorks’ Romantic Dinner For Two. The SupperWorks Team will do the shopping, meal-planning and prep work so this beautiful, multi-course meal is ready for you to pick up, or you can take it easy and have it delivered it to your door!
Pssst. Looking for something special to whisper to your sweetheart? Try this!
