New report: More Americans eating home, eating healthier
A new report by the USDA finds that our eating habits have started to turn towards eating out less and at home more. They looked at our eating habits over the last five years and found that although Americans still eat out the majority of the time, the trend is moving the right way.
Calories from food eaten outside of the home fell by 127 calories per day. That means, since we were eating food prepared by ourselves, our calories declined nearly 5 percent. Overall, Americans are eating healthier too. Daily overall calories declined on average Americans of working age ate 118 calories less per day.
Do it appears that we're eating out less, we're preparing our own healthier food at home and overall we're making healthier decisions.
