Are you eating out less?Posted on Sep 25th 2008 4:08PM by Martha Edwards
According to General Mills, sales are up significantly on some popular brands, including baking goods, yogurt, soups, cereal and snack products. Some experts think this is a strong indicator that people are eating out less and opting to enjoy their meals at home instead.
Why do you think this is? If you ask me, there are a couple of factors at play:
- A drop in the economy coupled with rising fuel costs leaves less money in the bank for luxuries like eating out, OR
- Perhaps people are wising up and realizing that picking up their meals from a fast food restaurant is doing them no favours health-wise.
I have nothing against the occasional meal out with family or friends, but let's be honest -- cooking your meals at home is the only way to ensure that you're getting the healthiest, most nutritious meals possible. Your thoughts?
