Fresh Ingredients

Our Mission

**Para español, vaya debajo.**

Our mission at CookitEasy is to inspire young people to learn to cook healthy home meals. The program is particularly targeted toward new college students. College is a busy time where many struggle to cook for themselves, so they end up eating pre-made meals excessively. There is where the phrase, “Freshman 15” (indicating freshmen gaining 15 pounds) originates. Many develop unhealthy habits which then stick with them throughout the rest of their lives. Obviously, this can lead to weight gain and health problems in the long run.

We want to address the misconceptions of many students that cooking healthy takes too long, costs too much, and doesn’t taste good. In this program, we release video step-by-step recipes that not only taste good, but take little time to make and whose ingredients cost very little. We hope that CookitEasy inspires them to want to cook themselves through college and beyond!

 

We hope to publish a digital cookbook that we can send to all graduating high school seniors in the Santa Barbara area. This cookbook would act as a resource that the students can easily access and follow once in college.

Nuestra Misión

Nuestra misión en CookitEasy es inspirar a los jóvenes a aprender a cocinar comida saludable en su casa. El programa está especialmente dirigido a nuevos estudiantes universitarios. Durante la universidad los estudiantes están muy ocupados. También, la mayoría de los estudiantes no saben cocinar. Por esas razones, con frecuencia comen demasiada comida rápida y pre-preparada. Ahí es donde se origina la frase "Freshman 15" (que indica que los estudiantes del primer año aumentan de 15 libras). Entonces, los estudiantes desarollan malas costumbres que continúan hacer después de la universidad. No comer comida sana causa problemas de aumento de peso, enfermedades y otros problemas con la salud.

Muchas estudiantes piensan que cocinar en su casa es aburrido, caro, dificíl y que toma mucho tiempo. Eso no es verdad.

 

Queremos mostrar a los estudiantes y los jóvenes que cocinar a casa es divertido, saludable, fácil, barato y que se puede hacer en poco tiempo. En este programa, publicamos recetas fáciles para estudiantes en la parte "Recetas en espaañol" del sito web. Arriba de las recetas hay menus desplegables donde las personas pueden personalizar las recetas que quieren.
