Choosing to prepare food at home can save you more than just money. Restaurant food is typically higher in calories, sodium and fat. Preparing meals at home means you have control over the ingredients and the amount added. Choose meats that are lean, fresh fruits and vegetables and ingredients that are low or reduced sodium. Preparing meals with fresh, healthy ingredients can help reduce your risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Cooking at home helps you control how much of a portion you eat. Restaurants often serve dishes that are 2 and 3 times the recommended serving. Those calories can really add up. To learn more about healthy food choices and what should be on your plate check out Exploring MyPlate.
