Motivation to Cook

By Rayah

What motivates you to cook?

The scriptures motivate me to be in subjection to my husband like my fore mother were. (1Peter 3:1-6) Our fore mothers were virtuous women and one of their traits was for them to cook for their households. Proverbs 31:14-15 says “She is like a merchant’s ship; she bringeth her food from afar. 15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.” Meaning she grocery shops afar to get good quality food for her family, and also she gets up early just to make sure she cooks and has everything ready even before the morning. So the next time you feel lazy or too tired to cook for your family think about the scriptures and let that be your motivation. Remember we are doing this not only for our family but also to please the Most High!


As you know the feast of Passover/ Feast of Unleavened breadis approaching, and at every meal we have to eat unleavened bread. (Leviticus 23:6) Sometimes people find it hard to have new ideas to cook during the week. Here are a three meals you can make during the week:

Beef or Chicken Nachos: Make sure you buy tortilla chips that do not contain leaven. shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, chicken or beef and whatever you like to add to your nachos.

You can just simply make Tacos, that’s always quick, easy and can feed a lot of people.

You can also make a regular chicken dinner with potatoes, veggies and Matzo crackers for your unleavened bread. Very simple and you can never go wrong making that for your family.

QUICK REMINDER: Don’t forget to check all household products for yeast or leaven. Remember we have to get rid of the leaven products in our household because that represents sin.


  1. A simple but important reminder about cooking! Thawadah (thanks) Sis! There are many times when cooking feels more like a burden than something enjoyable especially when you are working fulltime outside of the home too. But pondering on the scriptures is always a GREAT motivator to do what is right and do it with joy. When you cook and you are tired, emotional, mad, sad or frustrated, your food doesn’t taste that good. But when you are in a righteous spirit, you can truly taste the difference — it’s yummy! I will definitely be posting Proverbs 31:14-15 on my kitchen wall!!

  2. Thank you for the reminders Raiyah. I’m motivated to cook some of the Feast of Unleavened bread recipes too!

  3. I’m glad you guys enjoyed this article sisters

  4. Thanks for sharing these different meals to make during Feast of Unleavened Bread. It is sometimes hard to think of what good meals to make during that time that don’t have leavening products in it. I will definitly try this during Feast of Unleavened Bread.

  5. Shalom Sisters! And I sure do feel motivated! Excellent ideas Raiha, we appreciated them during Unleaven Bread. Very yummy! Proverbs 31 is going on the wall. Thank you
