Read on to Find out Why You should Eat Home-Cooked Food
Thanks to our increasingly hectic lifestyle, eating has become one of the lesser priorities in life. By way of example, we eat only when we are meeting someone in a lavish restaurant or bite while while watching a movie. When was the last time you took out a few hours only to prepare food and to enjoy it leisurely? When was the last time you put”LUNCH” on your daily to-do list? It has multiple positive effects on the body as well as on the brain.
Eating home-cooked meals regularly prepares our mind for simpler and more wholesome foods in the long term, which eventually start reflecting in our trimming waistlines and general health.
Hygienic:- A recent video allegedly showing a worker of one of our favourite dhabas kneading atta with his feet had us all squirming in our seats. While not all restaurants follow standards like these, it is extremely tricky to maintain desired levels of cleanliness and hygiene while preparing food at an industrial level. However careful food handling and cooking methods generally found at houses tend to maintain the meals healthier and our stomachs fitter.
Appropriate portions:- Since childhood, we all have always been taught never to waste food. However, restaurants are famous for their large portions, which became one of the prime reasons for my overeating, Raccoon Sounds and subsequent health difficulties. While the entire earth is moving towards the Japanese”Hara Hachi Bu” (Eat until you’re 8/10th full), it is high time that we, too, make a paradigm shift and change our eating habits. Eating at home gives us the luxury to customise our portion sizes according to our needs, exclusively.
Greater knowledge of food:- Do you know which food you should eat when you feel low after those boring day long meetings? Since food is our primary source of energy, it can have a filling, recovery or even negative effect on our bodies. Since home-cooked food is generally nourishing and produced from much lesser components, the taste and effects of each ingredient may be completely savoured.
Builds healthy habits:- Eating home-cooked meals jump-start a good deal of good habits that prove to be beneficiary during the life.
Easy on the pocket:- Read any book or article on”money saving hacks” and this one comes at the top. Eating home-cooked food more frequently is among the biggest and easiest ways of saving money. Even eating out from your neighbourhood thela is a more expensive affair in the long term.
Needless to say, cooking food is not everybody’s cup of tea. A lot of variables like being pressed for time, being bone lazy after a very long day and ineptitude to cook well come between us and a tasty and nutritious meal often. For my brethren who still long for some easy homely meals but are unable to get a few, let me show you the light to the dark path.
