    What kind of food do you eat most?

    I'm not talking about Italian, Ukrainian, etc...

    I'm talking about homemade, eat-out, or order-in.

    And if you homemade mostly, do you eat actual homemade food from scratch, or do you buy prepackaged foods?

    I am a huge believer in eating and cooking homemade food. I usually make most of everything from scratch because I know what is being put into it and where it's coming from. It's also nice because when I do go out to eat, I enjoy it so much more.

      Yes. We cook at home too because we know no color, preservatives, or hidden ingredients are going in. Lol about the eating out.

      Ooooh, we like Chinese in our house, but we are vegetarians so a lot of the fish sauces have to be omitted. Do you cook with a lot of fish/meat?

    We eat homemade from scratch. My husband will not eat prepackaged food except for the very occassional Hamburger Helper which reminds him of his childhood. We are southern, so we are used to cooking from scratch on a regular basis. We do like to eat out way too much and are trying to curb that currently. We also garden throughout the entire year, so that helps in cooking fresh food as well.

      It's funny how we will make exceptions for childhood favorites. I do the same. There is nothing better than having a garden to keep you eating well.

    Carrots, broccoli,cauliflower, okra and squash..my favorites...with perhaps green jalopena sauce..as it has zing and is not too hot..and sometimes I make a yogurt lemon sauce...usually I steam my veggies...but I also eat them raw..another veg I enjoy is cabbage soup , with a tomato base...I have recently made a pasta and mixed in the steamed veggies with diced tomatoes and mashed Avacodo, little sea salt and fresh ground pepper..I also use spices like Tumeric/Cinnamon/Garlic/ Sage and Ginger...speaking of which a Ginger Tea goes well with all these dishes...my mouth is watering already, so I better get off to bed..too late to snack now...good question, look forward to reading some other writes..maybe aome good veggie receipes.....

      So you like spices and zip! That is why I love Indian food. And I have lots of good veggie recipes considering I'm vegetarian almost vegan! I should probably get on those kinds of hubs.

    I eat and cook chicken dishes very often during the week. As it works for me, I perfer homemade meals as   I m a tight ass just add veggies, sauce, rice or a healthy salad and still leftovers for lunches.

      Being a tight ass is a good reason not to eat out! lol

      Agree, good food can be just as yummy as homemade then takeaway and for this reason, I shall shout myself a movie night once a fortnight with my savings "being a tight ass". smile

    I like to pretend I eat mostly homemade, but the reality is with a hectic work schedule, I just can't find the time to make something from scratch... and I'm a sucker for Indian takeaway!

    Most of my food is prepackaged. Occasionally, I go out. I rarely make anything myself.

    Mainly homemade foods. I enjoy easy-to-make items and often make extra to have leftovers next day.

      Interesting - There are many 20 minutes meals or 2-4 ingredient meals that can be made at home...I think many people don't realize that homemade can be easy!

    Since my wife is Japanese we do eat a good combination of Avocado, Miso sauces/spices and raw tuna (mainly side dishes). Main dish will always be plain rice.

      Nice. I worked in a hospital/old folks home where many of the residents were Japanese, and they were always eating rice as well. Interestingly, that wing of patients was much healthier than their cheeseburger friends in other parts of the home!

    i just recently found out that i have Celiac. Since then, my diet is mostly consisting of tossed salads, rice, and raw carrots (for my eyes).  i don't like ready-made foods.  I have always liked to know what is in my foods that i feed my family so i make my own from scratch.  it's healthier and tastes much better.

      My best friend's kids have Celiac, and I know she prefers to make everything at home as well - even though gluten free products are starting to become quite popular. I even saw it offered with my pizza order the other day. smile
