Modern day life demands a lot from us: rushing around, eating on the go, shuffling the kids to and from school and sports practice. Even staying connected on the internet can be demanding: how many hours a week do we spend scrolling sites like facebook and Instagram? It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of it all and lose sight of what is most important: family and health. The pandemic has forced us all to sit still and spend a lot less time on the go and more time in the home. Some of us have been out of practice when it comes to cooking. But did you know there are tons of benefits of eating home cooked meals? CA Chef is here for you if you don’t want to do the cooking – but eating healthy, home cooked meals is key to a good lifestyle.
Why Eating Home Cooked Meals is Beneficial
- No surprises – whether you have a food allergy, intolerance, or just want to know how many calories you’re eating, when you eat in a restaurant you can’t always be sure that what you’re putting in your body is good for you.
- Fresh ingredients – restaurants often prep and freeze their ingredients. They buy bulk items and some ingredients can be left on the shelf for a long time. Certain items are made ahead of time and preserved to expedite service rather than made on the spot.
- Nutrients – when you cook with fresh ingredients you are more likely to absorb more nutrients than with preserved ingredients.
- Well-rounded – skip the burger and fries and go for a well-balanced meal.
