Can our family go without take out, delivery, and restaurants for four weeks? I have no idea. When I asked Bill, he looked at me as ig he thought I needed to be committed to an asylum.
Honestly, we do not eat out as frequently as we once did but there are many nights when my choices are tainted by laziness or when convenience trumps practicality. So, for the next four weeks, our family is adding a new challenge to the Healthy Family Project. We will avoid eating anything not cooked within our home.
Why eat at home?
One of the most obvious reasons to skip the restaurants is the expense. In the last ten years, we have wasted more money on fast food, take out, and restaurants than anything else. Staggers my mind to try to figure the exact amount.
The other reason is about control. If you cannot see your food being prepared, how do you know what is in it? You don’t. How do you know the person preparing the food follows the standards you would have in your own kitchen? You can’t.
“Eat Out at Home” recipes
As a part of this challenge, I am going to share recipes for “out to eat” treats made right within our home. Among the recipes, you can expect The Great White Chicken Pizza, BBQ Pork Carnitas, Spinach-Artichoke Stuffed Chicken Breasts, and more.
