This is why people say COOK AT HOME. Compound this over time.
I used to hit the drive thru a few times a week. Woke up late, no time to cook but I had 20 minutes to spare to drive to a place, sit in the lane, and get my food. Yeah right. You are not fooling anyone.
Eggs are one of the easiest things to prepare. Does it take that long to cook and egg and toast a muffin? No it doesn’t!
Lets say you have an Egg McMuffin or something similar. How about a chicken biscuit from Chick-fil-a? Is that your poison? Triple the sodium, more preservatives and usually additives.
I’m not the food police. I’m not the Food Babe giving you a list of a million items NOT to eat. I’m comparing what I used to eat to what I eat now. This is why I feel better. This is one of the many reasons why I feel better. I make better choices.
If you are eating most of your meals outside of the home you are eating more sodium, more additives, more preservatives, and usually more chemicals. Why? Because the place you are going to has to keep that food around all day or all week ready for a customer. It is easier to keep a package of processed cheese “fresh” than it is to have a banana around for a week.
I challenge you to take the time to look at what you are eating and see if you can swap your drive thru for homemade. Sure it may take 10 extra minutes but it can save you years in being healthy.
