In a study of more than 99,500 people, those who ate 11 or more homemade lunches and dinners per week had a 12 percent lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes than those who ate six or fewer home-prepared meals weekly. Home-cooked meals are usually lower in calories, fat, and sodium, and contain more nutrient-and fiber-rich produce and whole grains than restaurant fare, fast food, and takeout.
