Essay 119 Topic 13 Do you prefer to eat out or at home?
Eating has become one of kinds of culture for centuries. Today people are interested in not only what and how they eat but also where they eat. Some people prefer to eat at food stands or restaurants. Other people like preparing and eating at home. In my opinion, I w­ould rather eat at home than at restaurants.


People want to eat at restaurants because of three reasons. Firstly, they will have a chance to enjoy a variety of food. Everyone has different favorite dishes and restaurants may satisfy all tastes of its customers. Secondly, sometimes people go to restaurants so that they have a private space to discuss something. Many people think that it is easier to do a business when they eat and negotiate at the same time. In fact, a number of negotiations take place successfully at restaurants. Thirdly, someone says that it takes a lot of time to cook at home. Therefore, they prefer to eat at food stands in order to save time.
However, many other people prefer to eat at home. This is because eating at home is much cheaper than eating at restaurants. Instead of spending money for expensive meals at a restaurant, people can prepare for a meal and save lots of money for other purposes. One friend of mine likes reading very much. She always cooks and eats at home to spend more money buying books. In addition, some people like cooking and they want to prepare for a meal by themselves. So as, they do not want to go out for a lunch or dinner at restaurants. Other people choose to eat at home just because they would like to spend time with their families. While having dinner at home, for example, they can share their happiness and troubles in jobs with their folks or even talk about a television program they like best.
I think that whether people eat at a restaurant or at home, the most important thing is whether they feel comfortable or not. However, if I have to choose, I will eat at home because it is a way to save my money and above all, I can have a good time with my family.
Essay 120 Topic 13 Do you prefer to eat out or at home?
It is a fact that in these days more and more people eat at food stands or in restaurants. I prefer to prepare and eat food at home.
But it is not always easy to cook your own meals. In modern societies role patterns have changed. Many women are not only at home and are responsible for house and cooking. They have to go to work either because they need the money to afford their standard of life or they want to go to work because they like to earn their own money. Many women also have a good education and are not satisfied with staying at home and are driven to reach their individual goals.
I also love my profession and would not like staying at home and only doing homework. But nevertheless I think it is important to be conscious about what we eat. It is also a fact that fast food can lead to difficult health problems. In addition many people suffer from obesity. When I cook my own meals I can decide what ingredients I use.
Another reason why I prefer to prepare food at home is that there is time to sit together with the family. It is a fix time of day where we all sit together at the table. In my opinion
this daily routine is very important for children and helps to rise a feeling for the family,
Although I know that it is not always possible to prepare my own meals and we of course sometimes have lunch or dinner at a restaurant or a food stand, in generally I prefer to prepare food at home for this reason.
Essay 121 Topic 13 Do you prefer to eat out or at home?
Food has always been an item of high priority mainly because it is one of the basic needs of man apart from shelter and clothing. It is evident from the literatures that man has always been keen to have proper food and in its quest he has discovered a wide variety of food items. It’s true that some people prefer to eat at food stands or restaurants whereas others prefer to prepare and eat at home. I would definitely prefer to have home made food rather than eating outside. I would like to illustrate my reasons for the above as follows
Making food at home is important because it benefits the health. Doctors and health specialists suggest taking more vegetables and fruits in our daily diet and inclusion of these in our daily menu is possible only when we cook at home. Moreover the usage of homemade spice mixtures in food enhances the taste of the respective food items. We can always be sure that the items used for cooking especially the different powders are safe and not adulterated. On the contrary many of the powders that we buy from shops are adulterated. That not only spoils the taste of the food but also has harmful effects to the health of the people.
Eating food at restaurants can result in various health problems like gastro intestinal disorders, food allergies etc mainly because they use ingredients available in the market, which are not always safe. I have come across many instances in which many of my friends got food allergies after having food from restaurants and I feel that this might be due to the different artificial colors and ingredients they include while preparing food. Moreover in restaurants the hygiene would be very poor which can result in health problems.
While preparing food at home, a person knows about the different ingredients that are required to make a particular dish and he will be aware of the procedures by which it is made. In a big family everyone can contribute their skills and can make cooking enjoyable. Serving and having food at home enlightens the family atmosphere where everyone can sit together and exchange their views, discuss their problems and relax after a tiresome day’s work. It definitely contributes to the physical as well as the mental health of all the members of the family and builds in a strong bond of togetherness. Moreover if a member of that family has prepared a new item and if everyone has liked it, then they will appreciate that person and this improves his confidence and he would feel happy for that.
One would never disagree with the fact that occasionally going to restaurants or food stands is good. Everyone would like to have a little change from time to time. It’s true that the taste of the food that they serve is different from that what we make in our homes and whether a person likes or dislikes entirely depends on his preference or choice. It is difficult for a person to always take food from restaurants because it will be too costly and everyone may not be able to afford. In a restaurant, he may not always get his choice of food and he will have to cope up with whatever food they offer. This might not be the case when we cook of our own.
So, I would rather suggest to prepare food and eat at home as there are many reasons behind it which includes health aspects, freedom to have food of their own choice, trying new recipes, making nutritious food, creating a good family atmosphere and of course cost effectiveness. I do not feel any sort of disadvantages in preparing food and eating at home whereas restaurant foods can cause many problems.
Essay 122 Topic 13 Do you prefer to eat out or at home?
We can find that some people prefer to eat at stands or restaurants, meanwhile others like preparing and eating at home. It depends on personal lifestyles they have. From my point of view, I prefer to prepare and eat at home rather than eat at food stands or restaurants if I have enough time. I would like to explain why I choose this point.
Preparing and eating food at home means that you can choose the food that you like most and you can arrange nutrient food for your health. For example, when you want to lose your weight, you probably choose kinds of vegetables that you want. You do not need worry about the food whether it fits your taste or not when you eat at home.
Another reason can be seen by everyone is that it is very expensive to eat at food stands or restaurants. When you go out for a regular dinner, you will pay ten times or more money than eat at home. Maybe this money will be enough to support your food for one week at home. You may not pay much money for eating at food stand for having lunch, but I think that money still can feed the whole family at home.
Moreover, a more personal reason why I like eating at home is that I can entirely relax myself when I have my dinner. For instance, if I go out eating, I have to pay attention to my clothing. Sometimes I have a dinner with some friends, I must notice my behavior and what I say. In these cases, I feel a little bit nervous. On the contrary, if I prepare and eat at home, I feel very free. When I prepare the food in the kitchen I can listen to the music; when I sit at table for dinner I can watch television. How comfortable I am!
Another, I feel that some disadvantages are more obvious when you eat at stands or restaurants. Sometimes you must sit at table waiting for food for a long time, or you have to taste the food that you do not like, or you pay the bill standing in a long line.
From what has been discussed above, I can draw the conclusion that preparing and eating at home fits me better in these ways: keeping my healthy, saving money, and relaxing myself.
Essay 123 Topic 13 Do you prefer to eat out or at home?
Some people prefer to eat at food stands or restaurants while others prefer to prepare and eat food at home. I have a predilection of eating food at food stands and restaurants because there is a lot of variety of food, the food is cooked and prepared more professionally and it helps in giving a change in the atmosphere.
In restaurants, there is so much variety of food to choose from while at home it is always the same kind of food. Whenever I go to a restaurant, I can choose my food from burgers to Asian food. In a restaurant, one can order whatever one likes without having to go through the trouble of cooking. When I feel like eating a burger or an Italian dish or some complex dish, all I have to do is go to a restaurant. On the other hand, at home there is no diversity of food and I have to eat the same types of food everyday.
Food cooked and prepared at home is never as tasty as food in restaurants. In restaurants food is made very efficiently. Once I ate pizza at home but it was no way near the delicious pizza at the restaurants. Not only that, when my sister eats at home she always complains that either the food is too spicy or not salty enough. In contrast, at food stands and restaurants the food is perfect with the right amount of spice and salt. Food in restaurants is delicious and cannot be compared to the food made at home.
Eating everyday at home becomes very drab and dull. Furthermore it takes away the opportunity for an outing. However, eating in a restaurant changes the dreary environment to a cheerful and delightful one. When my sister and I eat at home, we lose our appetite at times because of eating the same thing daily in the same place. But eating in a restaurant gives us the opportunity to explore new places and new foods.
I prefer food at food stands and restaurants more than food prepared food at home because it is tastier, I can eat whatever I please and I can have some outing. Without restaurants, there would be no enjoyment and the world would lose the opportunity of experiencing and exploring all sorts of foods from all over the world.
Essay 124 Topic 13 Do you prefer to eat out or at home?
Restaurants didn’t come to our life until late 19th century, but ever since then, having some nice food doesn’t necessarily mean a full day’s busy preparation. You can have something that you are never skillful enough to cook, by simply going to the restaurant at the corner of the street. However, many people still prefer to cook at home.
These people, who are often good at cooking, had their own reasons. First of all, they believe prepare food by themselves and eat at home is cheaper than going out. This is usually true because restaurants will change you for the cooking work and service. Another reason why they do not go out, is their taste and favor can only well satisfied by themselves, or in another word, only they know what food they like best. These amateur cooks even believe cooking is a good leisure, and they really enjoy doing so.
However, not everyone can cook, and certainly not every one considers cooking as a pleasure, for example myself, I can cook a little but it often takes a lot of time. Comparatively, going to a restaurant is takes much more convenient. You need no preparation for the food, and do not need wash the dishes after your meal. All you need is to order and wait for a while, than have those delicious foods. Getting something to eat from a food stand is even quicker. In a fast paced new world, saving hours of time for cooking means more than time. You can also enjoy a great variety of food by going to different restaurant. French meal, Chinese dumplings, Japanese Sushi, Indian Garlic Rice is some of those you can enjoy. There are also different ranks of food and restaurant from the most expensive to those that are as cheap as cooking at home, to satisfy the need of different kinds of people. Anyone even a chef, can never made such diversity. And as the restaurant develops, the prices are going cheaper and cheaper, since a restaurant prepare a large quantity of food.
As you can see, my opinion is very obvious: going to the restaurants and food stands is the more advanced way of having a meal, and would over come some less major disadvantages in the future.
Essay 125 Topic 13 Do you prefer to eat out or at home?
I prefer to prepare and eat food at home. I like to take this stand because of the following reasons.
My first reason is health. Food is a very good source of infections leading to many hazardous diseases. So eating a healthy, nutritious food is very essential to increase the expectancy of an individual. I think homemade food is more healthy and nutritious. The reasons for this are:
1. We make sure that the ingredients we use to prepare the food are clean and thus free from germs. 2. We can use very nutritive substances like certain vegetables or meat according to individual caloric needs.
My second reason is cost or money. Preparing and eating food at home is highly cost effective, when compared to eating at a restaurant or food stand. For example, if we buy vegetables for about 20$, we can cook food at home for at least 2 weeks, but for the same 20$, if we eat at a restaurant we can eat for hardly 3 days.
My third reason is family gathering. When we prepare and eat food at home, the whole
family gathers at the dining table. We can use this time to talk about our daily activities and share the happy moments.
My fourth reason is satisfaction. Some people, including myself enjoy cooking. I like to try preparing new recipes and learn different styles of cooking. While preparing food at home, we get a chance to sense the good aroma. After doing all the hard work, if the dish we prepare turns out to be good, the satisfaction that we get is immense. We feel very happy that we could prepare a healthy, nutritious and delicious food to someone we love.
Life today has become very fast and mechanical. So there is not enough time to prepare food at home. So, in this lifestyle people prefer to go to food stands and restaurants.
It is good to eat in food stands and restaurants only occasionally. I think, on a daily basis, it is good to prepare and eat food at home. Life is short and we have to make the most out of it. So, for the health, happiness and satisfaction I can give to my loved ones, and myself I prefer to prepare and eat food at home.
Essay 126 Topic 13 Do you prefer to eat out or at home?
In the modern life now, more and more people prefer to eat at food stands or restaurants. They think that will save time so that they can have enough time to do their jobs. But I still prefer to prepare and eat food at home.
There several reasons. First of all, you can save money if you eat at home. In general, to get profit, the restaurants ask for more money on the same food you cook at home. That is the waste of money. To save money, you may prefer to prepare you food at home with less money.
The second, usually, the food in the restaurants is not what you are expecting. you may dislike the way the restaurant cook the same dishes as you do at home. For example, the other day, I asked for potato in a restaurant. After the first bite, I thought it was so awful. My mom never cooked such potato for me! The bad lunch even destroyed my mood in that day.
The third, if you prepare food by yourself, you will have a happy mood when you eat it, regardless of the real savor of the food. It goes a saying well “labor brings happiness”. In addition, you can change your method of cooking considering your taste on that day.
The reasons above may can answer why I prefer to eat food at home. Cooking even has become my hobby now. Come back and have your delicious food, I am sure you will like it!:)
Essay 127 Topic 13 Do you prefer to eat out or at home?
When talking about eating, there are two options that come to our mind, either go out to fast food stands or restaurants, or prepare food by ourselves at home. In my case, I think I still prefer to have my meal outside, as it is easy to get, saves my time, and I can try variety of interesting food from different countries.
Being a working person, spending all day long with office work and commitments, I find it difficult for me to do all preparation for a meal. To me, the easiest way to get food is restaurant, where I can get prepared food at home or office by just ordering through phone. Another advantage is that whenever I have to eat together with my other colleagues or friends, I can always go to a restaurant, otherwise it’s difficult to prepare food at home for many people where I will not have time to talk or having fun with them. So, I always find it is easier to eat outside. Apart from that, it makes my other outdoors activities possible because I do not have to bother about food wherever I go. Either I am in theatre or traveling, restaurants are always there throughout city and it becomes easy every time to get food whenever I need according to other activities.
Besides that, I can save a lot of time by getting food from restaurant since I do not have to trouble myself with all the kitchen jobs such as go to market, cleaning and doing dishes. Instead I can get fresh food delivered in minutes. Another advantage of eating outside is that I have more quality time to do other things such as reading, watching TV, listening to music, going for a movie, or having fun with friends. By having my meal in restaurant I can manage a lot more activities instead of preparing food. In addition, I get a variety of food choice to choose in restaurant. I can taste world wide food variety like pasta dishes in Italian restaurant, tortilla and burrito dishes in Mexican, pizza, and burger items in American, noodles in Chinese and so on. I can also enjoy various vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes which are specialty of different countries. Furthermore, food served in restaurant are beautiful garnishing, that tempts for eating and is worth of paying. I find it very interesting to experience varied food in different restaurants.
In conclusion, I am fond of going stands and restaurants for eating instead preparing and eat food at home. This is because that option is suitable for me as it is convenient, quick and has more variety of tasty food. I think I enjoy it very much and make my daily routine easier and interesting.
Essay 128 Topic 13 Do you prefer to eat out or at home?
There is a public debate on the issue in those days that a new restaurant may be built in our neighborhood. Those who advocate it argue that building a new restaurant will benefit local business. However, I cannot agree with them. There are numerous reasons why I hold on confidence on them and I would explore only a few primary ones here.
The main problem with this argument is that it is ignorant to the basic factor that it is easy
to make traffic congestion and difficult to find parking in our neighborhood. This is everyone concern. Our neighborhood streets are narrow, with parking on both side and few garages attached to the house. Most of us depend on finding a space to park on the street. Now if we build a new restaurant, more cars traveling through the neighborhood could cause a lot of traffic. In addition, if there is not enough parking in the restaurant, they might look for and compete for parking space that belonged to us near our home
Another reason why I disagree with the above statement is that I believe we would lose our greenbelt which is the site for a restaurant. If a new restaurant is built or offered enough parking for the customers, it will be ever worse. That means the more space they occupy, The more greenbelts (park) we lost. We love that park so much. Mother with young children gathers there every morning for their kids to play together. People take a walk after dinner. On weekend, it is a place for picnics and relaxation. These are disappeared with a restaurant built.
In a word, in spite of the fact that there may be a couple of advantages to a new restaurant. Such as it would provide the jobs of the restaurant, I still feel that the disadvantages are more obvious: traffic congestion and loss of the greenbelt. Taking into account of all these factors. We may reach the conclusion that we do not need a new restaurant in our neighborhood.
Essay 129 Topic 13 Do you prefer to eat out or at home?
Where to eat is a necessary and important question we have to consider everyday. Some people seem to think it is more convenient to eat at food stands or restaurants; others tend to prefer to prepare and eat food at home. I have developed my own point of view, I support the latter opinion for three reasons as follow.
To begin with, eating at home is cheaper than eating outside. There is the cost of service and decoration, so people would be asked more money when they eat at restaurants. However, we can save this part of cost, and eat the same quality food at home. For example, if I eat a steak, I will need to pay at least twenty US dollars. I also can enjoy a steak meal if I spend about ten dollars making it by myself.
In addition, food in people’s own homes is cleaner. Actually, we cannot control the situation if the restaurant’s kitchen is clean. What we only can do is eating at home, because we can ask ourselves notice the cleanness of kitchen and the freshness of food. Eating at home is healthier for us, so people should choose this option.
Last but not least, it can save a lot of time if we prepare food by ourselves. We only have to go to the supermarket once a week, and spend less time making simple cooking everyday. Take my sister as an example. She likes cook by herself. Therefore, she doesn’t have to look for and decide what she wants to eat everyday. The life habit helps her save
a lot of time, so she advices me to be used to eat at home.
Of course, there must be some arguments on the opposing position. Nevertheless, for the valid reasons I have presented above, I believe preparing and eating food at home is a wonderful choice.
