Everybody loves to dine out and we all look for places where we can find good food and a pleasant ambience to get away from the routine homely food. But what makes the out of home food so good? Have you thought about whether the food we so happily indulge in is even hygienic? How do we know that the restaurants we love going to are as concerned about our health as we ourselves are?
When cooking at home we take every measure to ensure we eat the healthiest and cleanest of food. Which is why, we take care of things like cleaning the grill before cooking food and even more importantly washing our hands prior to entering the kitchen. But who can really assure us that the same protocols of health and hygiene are followed in eateries we frequently visit.
What’s more, we clean our kitchens in our homes on a daily basis and we have separate specified cloths for wiping different surfaces. Not only that but we make sure that the kitchen floor is mopped clean too so as to maintain a hygienic cooking area. However, when it comes to our favorite food outlets we can never be at complete peace of mind about their food quality and hygiene.
These all might seem like little things but they go a long way in ensuring that we eat safe and stay healthy. If these steps aren’t rigorously followed we run the risk of spreading bacteria and hence contracting diseases. For this reason, it is of utmost importance that we not only follow these procedures but ask for the same while eating out because “people who eat healthy, live healthy.”
Food hygiene and safety are pivotal for our health. From cleanliness of hands to the sanitation of utensils and floors. Whether we are cooking ourselves or dining out, eating healthy starts with eating safe. It falls on the shoulders of restaurants, cafes and takeaway food outlets to guarantee us food that is hygienic to eat. Being discerning customers, it is not only our right but our duty to make sure that we always eat hygienically.
