Thoughtout human history, food has been playing an important role in people’s daily lives. These days, with the wide appearance of new food resturants, people choose to eat outsides more fruquently than in the past. However, as far as I am concerned, I still prefer to eat at home.
Food prepared at home are usually healthier than outsides. Since we can choose the raw material and ingredient carefully by ourselves, we are more likely to eat food which is fresh, high in nutritions, and low in calorious. Besides, the cooking process at home are usually safe. In contrast, there are too much fried food in the resturant. So, it is obvious that eating at home can benefit our health and help us keep in fit.
In comparison with eating outsides, eating at home is a more cost-effecive and convenient choice. Strange as it may seem, eating at home can indeed save our time by eliminate the time on road, the time for parking a car, and the time for waiting. In most cases, perparing for food at home does not cost so much time. What’s more, though the food in resturant may be tasty sometimes, I do not consider it worthwhile, for eating in a resturant can cost three times as much as eating at home. If we eat at home, we can spare a considerable amount of money, which can be used to be better places such as education or travelling.
By preparing food together with our family members, we enhance our love for each other. These days, people live lives with such a quicker thythm that even time spent with family is limited. Therefore, I highly treasure the time when family members are preparing food together. In this time, we can talk about interesting things happened during the daytime, exchange our views on resent news, as well as share our joy and sadness. It is this time that make our family life happier.
Though the resturants and food station is prevalent today, I still prefer to eat at home, for it is healthier, cost-effective and happier.
