Everyday before cooking my dinner I always think about whether I should cook or not and what kind of food I should eat. It’s always the same food and it doesn’t taste good. However, if I eat out, it is more convenient and there are more choices. Many people have a similar problem like I do . Food is plentiful and we can see restaurants where to eat everywhere , therefore, many people like to have fast food. Nevertheless, fast food is not always good. If we compare fast food with home-cooked food there are some differences.
The biggest advantage of fast food is the price. Fast food commercials always emphasize their prices it is cheaper. For example, if you wanted to make a burger at home, you would need to buy bread,mince meat , and lettuce. If you bought all these things, you would pay more money than at a fast food restaurant.
Another point is the quality of the food. When you cook at home, you can control which ingredients you use, how to cook and with what . So you can use more fresh and healthy ingredients than fast food chains . Fast food restaurant food contain high cholesterols, trans fat, moreover, it also contains high calorie which leads to bad nutrition. Therefore, home-cooked food is of a high quality also you can feel better about your foods.
The last difference between fast food and cooking at home is time. The reason why many people go to fast food restaurants is to save time . Just five or ten minutes after ordering you will get your food. In addition, fast food restaurants have drive-thru so you don’t need to get out of your car.
Fast food and home-cook food have many different points. On price and time fast food has more advantages, but home-cooked food offers you more healthier benefits and quality . From my perspective, fast food has more benefits than cooking at home. However, even it is cheaper I prefer to eat home-cooked food because it is healthier and more nutritious.
