When you cook at home you are in control of what ingredients you use, and it helps you minimize the amount of overly processed foods that you would otherwise be eating when dining out. 70 percent of the sodium that Americans consume comes from overly processed food or meals that are eaten out. Diets high in sodium are directly linked to high blood pressure and poor cardiovascular health. When you cook meals at home, you not only control how much salt is added but also refined carbs, sugar and saturated fat – all of which are also linked to a greater risk of heart disease.
