    Which one you prefer - home made food or outside food?

    Today the business of hotels, restaurants, eateries and roadside food stalls is thriving and prospering as more and more people are going for outside food not occasionally but routinely. So, there is a option of getting the food from outside at a short notice. Still some people may like to have only home made food due to various reasons while some are happy with the outside food also.

    With more and more ladies going for jobs it is becoming more and more popular to get the food from outside. People have different choices and food habits and accordingly they order the food. In this situation what is your take on this - whether you like only the home made food or comfortable with the outside food also. Have you got any reservations on this account or you are ready to take even the outside food regularly. Please share your view on this.

    When I was bored of eating Homemade food relentlessly I want to go for outside food (Hotel) as I was bored of eating Outside(Where my wife is on summer vacation) I want to eat Homemade food. But Outside food we can't eat more than a week.

    Many people accept that homemade food is healthy and better for us. It is true also. Outside made food is like a ready-made dress. You have to select as per your likings and taste. Homemade food is like a tailor-made dress. It will be made as per your requirements and taste. We know what quality ingredients are being used in homemade food. But outside food we will see the taste and decide whether it is good or bad. But we never know the ingredients and their quality. Definitely, outside food makers will not go for costly ingredients and try to make the food tasty with less costly material also. So eating outside food regularly may have a say on your health. But homemade food is that way not harmful.
    But these days the time is the important point. In many families, both wife and husband will be working and they will not have sufficient time to get the food cooked. Those people are forced to rely on outside food. They should be careful in selecting their food outside and should try to have good hygienic food.
    I prefer going for food outside once in a while to a good restaurant but not on a regular basis

    There are vast differences in the quality of home made food and outside food in terms of taste, quality, hygiene and health. Home made food can be prepared in different ways and can be customised to all the family members depending upon their age and health. Outside food comes in fixed flavours and proportions and sometimes might be more spicy and hot and could be harmful to the health.

    I think occasionally and for a change or in emergencies outside food is a good choice but on a regular and routine way it is not an advisable proposition. People who have no time and are away from their families have no other choice than going for the outside food.

    Homemade food is best when it comes to comforting oneself and as far as prioritizing health over everything is concerned. I do not regret eating outside food. It is tasty. I feel that homemade food comforts the soul and outside food comforts palate. Thus, eating outside occasionally is acceptable but doing it frequently depletes the soul power. It is why I personally get bored if I have to eat outside for a long time.

    I enjoy eating outside while traveling. Tasting something new and getting to know new cuisines seems fulfilling in those times.

    I want to add here that in some cities some housewives in order to earn some extra money are delivering home made food or tiffin to the needy persons on a reasonable rate and this food is far better than the food in outside eateries. These ladies are not putting much oil and spices in their preparations and they are targeting the couple where both are working so if in your area you find such an service then occasionally to get food from them will be a good idea.

    Last time in my life I prefer something like fast food, some pizza, some buritto, some stakes fast done, some potato fries. I love to travel town a bit and do some eating between my day job for example. But it's not that healthy in the long run at all. So be it;)

    The main reason in determining this would remain with the type of choices that we are having along with what our intentions would be in terms of the acceptances in context to it. According to me the better would be to keep on with the home made foods and in case we are restrained with the outside food then pl. ensure to look out for the good places & go for the hot & warm instead of the cold one.

    During this phase of our life wherein we are dependent upon the both the types but still the options are open with us of about how we are going to take this.

    There shouldn't be much concern on the intake because our body is so made so as to digest of whatever this has been assigned with. It is during the time of medicine & during the time of being aged that we need to take care of this in order to avoid any unnecessary implication on our body & mind & therefore try to avoid anything that lead to negative impacts.

    I prefer homemade food but love to have foods outside at times. In India, people involved in a food-related business is not much conscious about quality control and hence if we take foods outside on a regular basis there may be some health issues. In fact, it is not good for our health to have spicy foods regularly. To change the taste, we can have it outside but not regularly. People nowadays are very busy and habituated to take foods outside even if they have the time to prepare food at home. Time to time there are reports of adulterated food coming from various places and at those time people become cautious. The varieties of food available in restaurants are wide enough and many have some favourites available at a particular restaurant. If the dish is not spicy and the restaurant adheres to strict quality control policies then it may not be a problem for our health but in that case, the cost of having outside food regularly will be much higher than that of homemade foods.

    For me, it is not a question of preference. I eat home cooked food, on a regular basis, and I also cook the food that I eat. However, that does not stop me from eating out. My husband and I generally go out for lunch, after attending service in Church, on Sundays. It is our time together. We make it a point to eat at reputed joints. I also order in food, especially when it is too hot to cook or when I am not well or have work-related deadlines to meet.

    Fortunately, I have no health issues and can eat out, without worrying about its implications on my health. I think eating outside food is fine, as long as it is done in moderation and you choose what you eat. I stay away from roadside vendors and small food joints and am choosey about where I eat and what I eat.

    Eating outside should be reserved only on very rare occasions, that is is to say monthly once etc.. Mine is home made food only though I am not denying the outside food. Food prepared by our house people is always good as their interest and our name is written on it. One well known chef himself told in one interview that there are difference in taste of dosa made by a hotelier and house person.

    Eating outside in some grand hotels such as Hyatts or Bhojo Manna known for the Bengal dishes would be healthy choice if selection of such restaurants are restricted once in a week.
    The fact that the flavours of their prepared dishes not only prove mouth watering but also prove to be appetisers and indulgence with such foods on some occasions is not going to make any health - issue.
    However, I would love to make my own cooking if my wife is bored or tired. With her consent, I start cooking and finally she too liked the way I prepare. Here, we are aware of the spices being powdered in the mixi and the oil being used. With the suitable blend of spices and oils such foods give excellent aroma.
