Do you often take out foods, dine in outside or cook your own food? If given a choice which would you rather choose?

Hi careguarden This is an easy one for me..Hands down I would much rather cook than order take out. Don't get me wrong, every once in a while I like to order chinese food delivery or Pizza but only like once a month. I love to cook and make my living doing same. I work on a yacht and go on trips when the owner travels with guests and do all the cooking, usually for a week at a time. I have lots of time off in between and always involved in something to do with food. On Fridays, when home, I teach 1 and 2nd graders basic cooking. Its a blast and I get just as big a kick out of it as they do! I am working on a cookbook that will probably never get published but I enjoy working on it just the same. I graduated from culinary school last year and started the book then and will probably finish it in 2020 at the rate I'm going!! Its a ton of work. I'm also going to start a cooking blog soon so as you can see, I am all about cooking!!!

I'm used having my mom who cook for me and I don't have time to cook or let just say I'm a bit lazy when it comes to cooking.lol Well anyway, I wish you all the best, hope your book will be finish before 2020. My mom might have a copy of it. Thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

If I'm alone I would rather take out food. If I will cook I will only cook easy foods, like fried foods, example hotdogs, bacon, meatloaf, etc.. I will choose take out foods specially if I'm busy.

Hi vycess Now I'm worried about you..Do you know how bad all that fried food is for you?? Come on girl!!! There are literally thousands and thousands of quick, easy and healthy things you an do, even if just for yourself. If you want, I'll pm you some ideas..Fried food is bad news and even though you are young, its a bad habit to get into..Eat chicken and fish, salads and fruit..they all take less time than fried food and they wont kill you!!! Pm me if you want some ideas...

Hello Vycess,Yeah, I agree with susicels, I think you're aware of the kind of foods that you eat. It's very unhealthy and you should not take it for granted, what's the use of your hard work, the money you earn when in the end you gonna pay an use it for your health. You would missed living a life to the fullest. Maybe right now, it doesn't affect you, but sooner or later you gonna pay the prize. I think it's better if you try to rather eat fresh vegetable salad, or any oatmeal and minimize your meat intake. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Most of the time I will cook my own food unless when my fridge is empty because too busy to go marketing or maybe sick and don't feel like cooking. Then I will take out food.

Well that's good, cooking your own food could be good for you, as you avoid eating in fast food restaurant or taking out any kind of processed foods. My mom was the one who often cook my foods so it's beneficial on my part.lol glad to have my mom. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

I usually cook. It saves a lot of money plus you know what's in it because you're the one who made it so it's also more hygienic. If you're not a good cook like me, a take out should be good every now and then so that you'll still get to eat flavorful foods haha..

I would prefer to eat in if someone other than me made it.....LOL I hate to cook, I would rather clean the toilet than cook a meal. I would rather eat out if my budget could afford it. Eating at home is great if I could get someone to make that wonderful meal at home.

I eat at home most all the time.I think going out to eat by yourself is no fun at all. I have gone out to eat w/my son & grandson for the last two sat. & i have enjoyed that alot especially the company. I think it quite expensive to eat out as much as some people do. i enjoy eating out but sure wouldn't want to eat out as much as some people do.

More often then not, my family will make a home-cooked meal. It depends really on how much we have take out, but usually about twice a week. We have it once a week for sure (on friday nights) and it really depends on whats going on with whether or not someone feels like cooking or not. If I had the choice, I would eat take out more than I do but I think if I did that I would be really fat haha. And it would be expensive too. So I guess I would maybe have some more healthy take out food or something.

When I have free time I prefer to eat at home, something cooked by myself or some frozen meal. If I have a busy day I have to eat outside, even if I don`t like doing it much as I don`t have much time to eat on those days and I have to deal with a sandwich or so.
