THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOXYou’re just getting off work and as you are walking to your car to start the drive home, you ask yourself, “What’s for Dinner?” Not having any idea of what to cook and wondering if there is anything to quickly throw together that would satisfy the family causes you to just use the speed-dial for take-out. If your family’s favorite take-out places know your orders by heart, you may want to evaluate how frequently you are relying on this habit and its potential for excessive calories in your family’s diet.According to a study conducted on 9,000 adults by Johns Hopkins University, adults who cooked most meals at home consumed about 184 calories less a day than those that didn’t. The average sized adult would need to walk for about 30 minutes to burn this number of calories. The habit of cooking at home seems pretty efficient at “burning” calories, when you look at it this way. Over the course of a year, just think about how many calories you could save (burn) by cooking more meals at home! If you want to meet your weight goals, you also need to do the “work” in your kitchen.
