One of my goals is to inspire people to eat more home-cooked food. Over time, I have gradually increased the percent of food that I cook at home, and I have experienced the benefits. Here are a few of the often overlooked benefits of eating at home.
- You know what you’re eating
- Save money
- Eating home-cooked food go beyond nutrition, calories, and saving money. As the saying goes “you are what you eat”.
Do you think the same is true of restaurant food? Have you ever looked in the kitchen of a busy restaurant? What you’ll probably find is a group of tired, stressed-out cooks, running around busily preparing your food. If you believe in the idea “you are what you eat,” do you want to eat the food made with love or the food made under stressful conditions?
Don’t get me wrong, there is a time and a place for eating out. Going out to eat can be a wonderful, relaxing experience. I would, however, like to inspire you to prepare more of your food at home. If you love pizza, make a pizza. If you’re craving steak, make a good quality steak with some beautiful vegetables and a salad.
