Today, the options for eating out are endless, from fast-food restaurants to trendy food trucks. But these options can be as expensive as they are unhealthy. If you choose home-cooked meals prepared from all-natural foods delivered right to your door, you can enjoy these benefits:
Health and Nutrition
As the chef, you will know more about the nutritional value and quality of the food you’re preparing. You control the amounts of salt, fat, butter, oil, and sugar. You’re also able to tweak recipes and portions to your liking. Eating out, on the other hand, is a real guessing game when it comes to how the dish is prepared, where your food is coming from, and how much salt or fat is in the dish.
Research suggests families who eat at home eat more whole grains, fruits, and vegetables and less fried food, soda, and empty carbohydrates. There are psychological and emotional benefits to eating at home with the family, too. Research from the University of Minnesota suggests regular family meals are linked to a reduction in risky behavior, alcohol and drug abuse, and unhealthy weight loss in young people.
Every time you cook at home, you learn at home. You develop your cooking skills over time, which always comes in handy for entertaining. Plus, you can teach your skills to family members or even learn your friends’ recipes. Eating at home means learning and developing useful skills.
Imagine eating your favorite restaurant dish but paying 50 to 75 percent less for it—you can when you eat at home! All you have to do is purchase and prepare your all-natural ingredients—there’s no gratuity to pay or gas to spend driving to the restaurant. The average American family spends about $4,000 a year on dining out. Eat in more often and you’ll save a lot of dough.
