Home cooking or frozen pizza?

Do you like cooking? A lot of Germans would answer "yes", including young people. But people often don't have much time in their day-to-day lives, while others don't like to cook or don't know how. Over 30 million Germans say that convenience products are a big help. What do you think? Single people, especially men, often buy things like frozen pizza, fish fingers and instant soup at the supermarket, and often pay more attention to the price than the nutritional benefits. Customers want inexpensive products, and the choice of convenience foods is huge in German supermarkets. But if you really want to save money on groceries, convenience products are not the answer. Homemade food is not only much healthier, but also less expensive than convenience food in Germany.
