Do you cook your meals or do you often choose to eat out? Well for me, i normally cook my meals. One being it's to save cost. Two being i'm able to control how much oil or salt or MSG i can add into my food. I choose to think that i'm healthier when i eat my own cooked food. What about you?

I tend to cook at home... not for the same reason as some of you, though. I just prefer my cooking to most other people's. I want my food my way, not someone else's way.

If you take ur food in your own way... nothing enjoyable... Try to take food in different type and try to enjoy it in it's own environment. I mean if you try to take tarkish food in english environment... nothing enjoyable. You have to take it in tarkish environment... then u find the real test of food.

I cook about 3 times a week and I always make enough for 2 meals, so we eat leftovers the night after I cook a meal. We usually will eat out once a week. We used to never eat out, but now that we have a little more money we can afford to eat out 4 times a month. It's nice to eat out once a week and we eat home-cooked food so much that I don't really worry about the health consequences.

We do a little bit of both. We're trying to eat home more since we're trying to save on money and stuff. However, there are times when you just have to eat out somewhere.

Well I prefer my cooked food, since as you said you exactly know what you put in it, however once a week I like to go to eat out, I choose health food since I also want to loose some weight. There are lots of food to choose from not burger or chips :)

I prefer cooking my own meals for the same reasons than you. Sometimes my husband cooks too, he's great in the kitchen! But sometimes I can't help eating out. It can be boring and tiring sometimes :'( It all depends on my job's schedules...

I prefer to cook meals at home so I know what is in the food that I am eating and that I know for a fact that it is healthy for me. Here for the past few months though I have had to work way to much and haven't had much time off so it seems the home cooked meals have been just a dream. We usually order out at work and then on my way home everyone else at my house has usually already eaten and often times are already in bed so I usually run through a drive thru and pick me up something. I am hoping in the next few weeks that I will be able to spend more time at home and less time at work so I will be able to prepare home cooked meals a lot more than I am able to now.

Hey Regal_aeros Well i don't know how to cook food. But my mum do it all for me, she knows how hard working i am..lol..COming back to the point, i don't prefer eating outside because firstly my mum gets a little angry when i eat outside, secondly even i don't prefer much because i think i am putting on weight but one's in two weeks going out for lunch with friends is fine i guess.hehe. I am trying my best to eat healthier food and not to gain any extra kilos..!! Cheers!!
