In Asia, eating out is a common practice. Not only is tasty food available on every street corner, but also, many people live in small apartments where perhaps they don’t have a functioning kitchen. However, the downside of eating out regularly is that you can’t control what’s going into your food which can impact your health over time. Photo by gianlucaponti
