  1. How often do you eat a day?

I usually eat at least three times a day, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Sometimes I also eat snacks or chocolate bars once or twice.

  1. What do you usually eat for breakfast?

Normally, I eat a bowl of cereal with milk /ˈsɪriəl/ most often because it is easy to digest. Sometimes I eat Banh Mi or Pho to make something new for the day.

  1. Do you like to cook? Why or why not?

Actually, I’m not really into cooking, and I’m not a good cook, I think. Because I’m so tied up with my work, I consider it a waste of time. Whenever I want to have a special meal, I just go to the best restaurant in my area to enjoy it. It saves me time and is convenient.

  1. What is your favorite food, and what do you like about it?

I am a big fan of seafood.  I really like to eat some seafood, like lobsters, crabs, shrimp, and other kinds of fish. Because they taste great and are fresh. I can eat them every day.

  1. If you could eat any kind of food, what would it be and why? What kind of new food would you like to try? [Why?]

This is an interesting question.  If I had a chance to eat any type of food, I would try gold kobe beef because it costs an arm and a leg, and I would like to have a novel experience with this type of food to know what’s the difference between it and any other beef.

  1. What was the last meal you cooked?

The last meal I cooked was a vegetable stir-fry and fried egg, which is one of my favorites, about a week ago.

This recipe is for quick dinners, especially if you have any kinds of vegetables in your house like baby corn spears, mushrooms, red pepper, et cetera.

Of course, it took me a while to prepare the food, but it was just perfect in taste and texture.

  1. Do you prefer home-cooked food or food from restaurants? [Why?]

I like both. I like eating at home because it saves me money, and it’s definitely healthier and better because I have more control over what goes into our food when we are in our own kitchen.

But eating at a restaurant saves me time, I can try a variety of new foods, and it’s convenient.

But if I had to choose only one, I would choose eating at home.

  1. Why do restaurants taste better than home?

I reckon that the atmosphere, music, and personal interactions all add to the restaurant experience. When cooking at home, I  feel tired when preparing and cooking, so we can lose appetite. /ˈæpɪtaɪt/

  1. What are the differences between eating at home and eating in a restaurant?

I read some research shows, they say that we consume more calories, fat, and sodium and less nutritious foods when we eat out instead of at home.

We have more control over what goes into our food when we are in our own kitchen.

Portion sizes are usually larger away from home, too.

  1. What are the benefits of eating together?

Hosnestly speaking, when a family sits down together, it helps them handle the stresses of daily life and the hassles of day-to-day existence.

Eating together tends to promote more sensible eating habits, which in turn helps family members manage their weight more easily.

The more often people eat with others, the more likely they are to feel happy and satisfied with their lives.

  1. Is it good to share food with others?

There are tons of benefits to sharing food or a meal with people.

It builds trust among people sharing the same food.

You can achieve decisions and consensus more quickly; you’re more likely to respect each other; and it’s easier to work together.

  1. Why is sharing food important?

Research has clearly shown that sharing meals can greatly boost our wellbeing. It benefits not only our physical health but also our social and emotional wellness.

From home to the workspace, communities of all kinds would benefit from more shared mealtimes.
