On a Friday or Saturday evening there is nothing nicer than curling up in front of a roaring fire watching television and tucking into a takeaway. It is the perfect food after a hard weeks work. A takeaway may be satisfying, delicious and convenient but what is it doing for your health, diet and purse strings? Everyone loves a takeaway but is it becoming a bad habit?
Takeaways are often full of hidden fats, sugars, additives and artificial flavourings. Some takeaways can push you over your recommended daily maximum calorie, salt and fat in take and one too many takeaways can have a serious impact on your health.
Most takeaways can be made at home quite easily, healthily and cheaply. You can also make more than you need and freeze for when you really can’t be bothered to cook.
