As diet-related health care issues such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure plague Americans in epidemic proportions, employers and insurers have looked for creative ways to encourage their employees and customers to take personal responsibility for their health. Mealtime, they say, is ground zero for establishing healthy lifestyle habits.
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (PRWEB) June 23, 2014
eHealthPath.com, an online resource for promoting healthy lifestyles, has launched its new website offering online nutrition and cooking courses designed to teach anyone how to prepare real food for real life. eHealthPath was designed to bring the joys and benefits of learning to prepare fresh, tasty meals to a generation of die-hard fast-food junkies who never learned to cook. The online nature of the eHealthPaths structured cooking courses means that anyone with a computer or tablet can learn how to prepare healthy, delicious meals conveniently at home, at their own pace.
What separates eHealthPath.com from the Gordon Ramsays and Rachel Rays of the entertainment television cooking airwaves is its focus on the fundamentals of cooking without the distractions; from learning how to select the freshest ingredients to combining items to create a wide variety of tastes, often by simply switching out seasonings and herbs on a staple dish, making leftovers something entirely new when theyre re-served.
Many people were not lucky enough to be raised in a home where healthy meals were cooked every day, says Frantz Corneille, eHealthPath co-founder and CEO. For the past 40 years, Americans have been working longer hours and taking on two or three jobs at a time to make ends meet, which made it easy to become reliant on cheap fast food.
Before they know it, theyre facing dire health problems with devastating consequences. Luckily its never too late to turn those bad habits around.
Corneille says he believes that a majority of people would prefer to cook their own meals and eat at home most nights with their families, but they dont even know where to start. Thats where eHealthPath comes in.
A goal of eHealthPath is to offer insurers and employers an incentive program to reward customers and employees who make the effort to establish a healthier lifestylea proactive approach that can help lower medical payouts and employer insurance premiums.
The junk food habit is ruining our collective health, Corneille says. Getting away from it is fundamental to addressing obesity, diabetes, heart disease and a laundry list of illnesses that harm millions of people.
"From an economic perspective, its a no-brainer; preventative medicine in the form of healthy living should be the present and future goals of health care in America.
eHealthPath.com online cooking and nutrition courses help make transitioning to a healthier lifestyle not only convenient, but enjoyable as well by offering suggestions for making the most of a variety of foods and flavors.
The eHealthPath philosophy is both simple and sobering: cooking is not just one of the most important skills a person can learn, but a tool everyone needs to live a healthy lifestyle that they can pass on to their children. Once The people change the way they think about the foods they eat, the real work can be done. eHealthPath has produced a structured cooking curriculum that espouses education and personal responsibility, and enhances the potential for success by making the courses easily accessible at the viewers convenience.
By providing the necessary structure, Corneille says the organization hopes to eliminate obstacles created by the lack of cooking skills that has become the norm in todays fast-paced world. These obstacles are made even more challenging by conflicting information on food sources and nutrition from a variety of sourcesmany of which are less than credible.
Corneille and the eHealthPlan team will be attending the 2014 National Wellness Conference in Minneapolis June 23-26, 2014. Exhibiting vendors and visitors are invited to contact Corneille in advance in order to arrange a brief introduction and do some healthy networking!
