The verdict is in: people who cook more at home tend to eat healthier, and eat less fast food, according to a Johns Hopkins research study.
Adults, who reported they cooked dinner six or seven nights a week, consumed fewer carbohydrates, less sugar and less fat than adults, who only cooked once a week.
Cooking at home shouldn’t be complicated. Quick and healthy, home-cooked meals are better than most fast foods. The study reported that most people feel overwhelmed by cooking, and not sure where to start.
