It saves money to eat homemade food than eating in restaurant or buying processed food from the market. Apart from paying for the food that you are eating in a restaurant you will also need to pay for the cost of running that business. Some of the things that you are going to pay for apart from food is electricity, building, water and the staff. Another thing with homemade food is that you will also be able to save the leftovers in a refrigerator unlike in a restaurant where you will not have to carry the leftovers. This will enable you to reheat them later when you don’t have time to cook.
In addition to that, homemade foods also contain healthy ingredients. This is because during the time that you are preparing food at home is that you will know that exact ingredients and the quantities that you have put in it. This is different from commercially prepared foods which contain high fat contents, salt and sugar. When you are preparing the food, yourself you will be able to control the ingredients that you are putting in your food.
When you eat homemade foods you will be in a position to reduce allergic reactions and sensitivities.

This is not the case with commercial foods since they are prepared in your absence and you may not know what it was made of.
In addition to that, you will be able to control the portion of food that you are eating. In almost all the restaurant and fast food points they always offer larger portions of food than normal.
