How often do you cook at home?

In 1900, only two percent of meals eaten in the US were eaten outside the home. In 2010, that number had climbed to approximately 50 percent, and under 33 percent of families sit down for a meal with each other more than twice a week. A study out of John Hopkins University, however, suggests people who cook and eat more meals at home consume fewer carbs, calories, sugar, and fat than peers who cooked less or not at all, even if they weren’t trying to lose weight!

It makes sense! –

It’s easier to eat the right amount of food when you know what went into it. There are also fringe benefits like calories burned in the process of cooking, and time and money to be saved by cooking in big batches and freezing some for later.
