Welcome to the amazing world of creating the one thing no human can live without – food! If you haven’t really gone past your basic recipes and don’t know where to start or your mom’s or dad’s recipes go over your head, these books will help you up your game in the kitchen! We review our top five picks for anyone who wants to learn the basics of cooking. 

Joy Of Cooking  

This is the one book every American who wants to learn how to cook needs. If you are a reluctant cook or if you find yourself frustrated by how quickly and easily recipes get messed up, then you need Joy of Cooking. Irma Rombauer teaches you how to know exactly what ingredients to add and when to find joy in cooking.   

The Flavor Bible  

The Flavor Bible teaches things differently. Instead of teaching the recipes, this cookbook teaches enthusiastic home cooks about the different flavors and how to bring them out in cooking.  

It also teaches techniques on how to season ingredients and explores different combinations and pairings of flavors. If following recipes don’t work for you, then this book is what you need to learn about flavors and create your own cuisine.   

What Good Cooks Know  

What Good Cooks Know is the one book you need if you’re a complete noob in the kitchen. This book, with its step-by-step instructions and photography, will guide you from making a shopping list and picking the right ingredients to bring them together as you cook them, along with anything else that you need to know to become a good home cook.   

The Science Of Good Cooking  

Another cookbook that can teach beginners the basics of cooking is The Science of Good Cooking, and as you can guess from the name, this book doesn’t follow recipes either. Instead, it focuses on techniques of cooking that, once learned, will help you cook anything and everything. If you are an adventurous home cook who wants to be able to create different cuisines in a short amount of time, then we highly suggest you pick this one up.   

Jamie’s Ministry of Food: Anyone Can Learn to Cook in 24 Hours  

This book, as the name suggests, is for the impatient beginner cook. If you have to impress your date with your cooking skills, or if you want to cover up the lie you told your mom and don’t want her to find out that you have been living on instant noodles the past few months or years, then this book will save you. Jamie’s Ministry of Food is a book that includes both easy-to-follow recipes along with tips and tricks that will make you knowledgeable on the basics of cooking.   

One of the biggest reasons you feel fatigued is dehydration. However, if you’re not a fan of drinking regular water, here’s an alternative that’s sweeter, healthier, and full of nutrients.
While we do not recommend having watermelon the same way as you would have water, this fruit is probably one of the best sources of hydration. They contain 92% of water and several other nutrients such as vitamin A and C.

All in all, processed foods cannot replace the benefits that natural and whole foods provide. No matter how delicious and convenient they may be, processed foods are a leading cause of fatigue among many. By incorporating these and many other recommended options, you can enrich your daily meals and give your energy levels the boost they deserve.
