Like: Healthier, feels very accomplished and productive, rewarding to see other people eat your meals, more affordable.
Dislike: Clean up, long prep time, waiting for food to cook when I'm hangry, if meal prep you're eating the same meal over and over, meal prep isn't as good after a few days in the fridge.
Like: knowing there will be healthy options available when I'm hungry in future, having control over what I consume
Dislike: time consuming, and usually what I feel like eating when I'm prepping I don't feel like eating a few days later
Like: Simply the activity of it, experimenting with different techniques and in general knowing I did it from scratch
Dislike: Nothing really, maybe the clean up but a waste bowl works well in that case
Like: for me, it's a relaxing activity (in most cases). I really like to make food that's not just delicious but also pleasing to my eyes. I also like that I know what's in the food I'm eating.
Don't like: come up with an idea of what to create :D And go to the store to buy all the ingredients. So I end up creating some kind of pasta in too many cases.
What I like: Healthlier and save time, also I can control what I am actually eating. I am veggie and it's important for me to be sure there no meat in my food.
What I do not like: I won't say that it's a waste of time because it's always really nice to cook listnening to music but it's clearly time consuming.
