I found this little illustration and found it really interesting. Oftentimes I find myself wondering whether or not all the hassle is worth prepping and cooking at home. Aside from the health issue, there are obvious financial reasons to eat at home:
Okay, I know what you're thinking: "Rachael, I don't eat green peppers, rice and beans. We're humans, not mice." Same here. But there's still a considerable price difference between the fast food category and the middle, more "normal" food category.
This is not to say I'm not down for a good burger. I'll go for a Whopper any day. Just something to think about next time you're tempted to hit the drive-thru...for the third time...that day.
Love and cooking-at-home,
