Let's admit it, almost all of us have become addicted to ready-to-eat foods.

Although it is unhealthy, we consume it abundantly, sometimes for convenience and sometimes just because we are delicious.

Fast food can save our lives especially when we don't have time.

As adults, we criticize the children the most, but I think this is the biggest mistake made because the eating habits start by taking the family as an example and we push our children to make mistakes.

Fast food type foods generally contain a very high amount of calories to provide you with energy in a short time. The inevitable result of consuming such calorie-dense foods frequently is weight gain. Fast food returns to you first as weight and unwanted weight, and in the long term with more difficult diseases such as obesity.

Fast food, or fast food, is becoming an established culture.

These ready-to-eat foods and beverages, which are easy and delicious to eat, can cause various health problems due to low nutritional value, high calorie content, and almost no pulp.

These foods, which already have a high energy content, also cause them to be eaten more in quantity when consumed quickly. Then come the weights...

Hamburger, pizza and crispy chicken, which entered our lives with the fast food chain years ago, are very popular today. Although we constantly talk about the harms of fast food that we consume without saying big or small, in fact, we get the damage from outside.

At least as an alternative to these meals, we can try to make it at home in a healthy way.

Now I will give examples with a few simple recipes

-Crispy Chicken Legs Ingredients:

-12 pieces of chicken thigh meat

-1.5- 2 cups corn chips

-4 tablespoons of olive oil

-1 tablespoon of honey


-Red powdered pepper

Preparation of Crispy Chicken Legs

Take the corn chips in a large bowl and mash with a meat grinder to obtain fine pieces. Mix olive oil and honey in a separate bowl. Dip the chicken thighs you have washed first in olive oil with honey and then in corn chips.

Place the chicken meat with chips on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.

Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Serve hot.

Or a perfect pizza that you will enjoy;

-For the pizza dough:

-1.5 cups of flour

-half a glass of water

-1 teaspoon of fresh yeast

Preparation of pizza with plenty of ingredients:

For the dough, dissolve the yeast in warm water. Sift the flour into a wide bowl. Add salt and powdered sugar and mix. Open the middle like a pool. Add olive oil and knead until you get a smooth dough. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest in the refrigerator for two hours.

Put all the ingredients for the tomato sauce in the food processor until you get a smooth sauce. Take the rested dough on a floured counter and open it. Spread the tomato sauce you prepared on it.
