As a professional, and often eating on the run, the question is, why cook? After all there should be restaurants nearby for lunch and with a good salary, why bother? A couple reasons come to mind. Food near Peachtree Dunwoody is a little hard to get to. When you can get to it, it’s hardly cheap. The work site has a microwave and microwave safe soups are becoming easier and easier to get.  But the problem with the inexpensive microwave soups is the salt content. If you’re trying to control your salt, one portion of these and you’ve lost.

If you cook food yourself, you can control the nutrition, the salt content, the calories, the glycemic index. You can also save a fair amount on money compared to restaurant prepared meals.
