Eating out and getting takeout can both seem more enticing at times. It can feel like an easier, simpler way to handle dinner. But, don’t underestimate how good it is to cook from home! Being a home chef can come with a lot of perks, in fact, it might even save you time!
You’ll have more time for family
You get to cook in the privacy of your own home. You don’t need to be in a crowded restaurant surrounded by lots of other families. You can cook together or just sit around the table together, sharing stories, without the noisy restaurant backdrop.
It can save you time and money
It’s kind of like buying retail versus wholesale, when you eat out versus eating from home. If you eat out, you’re paying someone else to cook your food too. But, if you just buy the supplies, you can get a better total price. It’s like skipping the middle man. Plus, believe it or not, you can save time. There’s no drive time involved, or time spent trying to choose something from the menu. And, you can save even more time when you prep ahead or use a slow cooker!
You have more control of your health
You can make more well-balanced meals, choose how much sodium or other extras go into it. You also decide the sizes of the portions that go on your plate. Plus, if you have food allergies or sensitives, you can better control what you eat to avoid those triggers. And it also removes the temptations of the less healthy options that a restaurant menu may offer.
May lessen your chance of food poisoning.
You can reduce your chance of food poisoning, by practicing safe food handling. You have control over the cleanliness of your home and how the food is handled. You also know how fresh your food is.
It gives you the freedom to create
You can be creative. You can try a new recipe or even come up with your own! It’s a little adventure in your own kitchen!
