If you follow us on social media, you may have noticed that last month we launched a campaign called #AmbrosiaCooksWithPurpose in honour of “Be On Purpose Month”! This campaign was designed to create a platform where YOU guys could share the reason or “purpose” behind your cooking, whether that be training for a fitness event, to nourish your families, or try new foods! Well, we must say that we were totally
blown away with your responses, and received close to one hundred photos using the hashtag, #AmbrosiaCooksWithPurpose!
As promised, we’re sharing some of our favourite “purposes” with all of you today!
Thanks SO much for sharing you guys! We love our Ambrosia community!
Your Reasons to Cook – Our Followers, AKA The Team Ambrosia Community
“Believe it or not I didn't know how to cook when I got married 12 years ago. It has been a slow and steady development over the years in trying new recipes, reading books, Googling, You Tubing, Pinteresting and watching a ton of cooking shows. This has been my culinary training. I've always loved to eat well, but cooking didn't actually become a passion until a few years ago...the beginning of my Instagram account. Looking back, it started out as a way to share a glimpse from my kitchen. As I started to connect with fellow foodies, I soon began to be inspired beyond words. After being a stay at home mom for many years, sharing my love of cooking and really being good at something again, gave me back my confidence, a new identity and a new purpose I was longing for.” - @cucinamiawb
“To feel good” – Karna
“My mom is my inspiration for healthy living & lifestyle. She taught me at a very young age this skill. And I am very grateful for that. I love turning guilty pleasure into healthy treats. This puts me into a happy place.” - @estherburgs
Purpose: Prevent Food Waste
"The purpose of tonight's dinner is CORN (Clean Out Refrigerator Night). I hate throwing out food, and a stir fry is a great way to use up leftovers and avoid food waste" - @pickles_and_kiwi
"Today's booch of the day is an amazing blend of pineapple, grapefruit and ginger root. This flavour combination tastes delicious! I'm surprised the grapefruit doesn't make it too sour or tart. @ambrosianaturalfoods I drink kombucha to improve my gut health for #ambrosiacookswithpurpose - @cherann3
"Shopping for, growing, preparing, making, cooking, and sevring healthy food, in my opinion, is an expression of LOVE... Love for the planet, love for others, and love for oneself. LOVE is my purpose." - @healthymadewell
"Emergency dinner? Did I tell you how I precook my legumes and save in freezer? Love those moments, when I can just pull something out and it's healthy. The lentils unfreeze super quick. We poor hot water over them and it's done." - @conscious._.health
How do YOU cook with a purpose?!
