October is Eat Better, Eat Together Month!
So stop vegging out alone and start setting the table. The benefits are greater than you can imagine. Shared family meals are more likely to be nutritious & better for your waistline.
That’s because even though eating out is convenient, it packs on the calories. The average restaurant meal has 60% more calories compared to a homemade meal.

And how about eating together with your co-workers in the break room? Studies show that eating lunch as a team improves job performance in the office.
