Let's face it, it is easier and less time-consuming to stop by a fast-food drive-thru restaurants or convenience stores to pick up something for lunch or your evening meal than it is to cook at home. Try this experiment. Designate a typical week and record the amount you spend every time you purchase ready-made food to eat, whether you eat it at the restaurant, home, work, or on the road.
