4 Reasons to Motivate You to Cook Outside (and 1 Bonus)
There was a time when we didn’t spend so much time with our devices. Many of us have clear memories of playing in our backyard or just being outside around the house with our friends.
It shouldn’t be surprising why many of us can recall those things. Many childhood memories are based on being outside, not in front of a screen.
There’s so much joy being outside in nature, and that goes for all of us, no matter what age we are.
Another joyful memory we probably have is getting together with friends and family for meals. Great food and great company is something we naturally enjoy.
Eating and the outdoors …what if we combined them?
