Each day millions of working Australians dash out of their offices or cars in search of a quick lunch. Two thirds of us settle on a takeaway. In fact, two thirds of us eat fast food for lunch every day. It's convenient, it's cheap and it tastes good. But it's important to try to make fast food choices that aren't bad for you.
These days many companies are offering healthier choices and recreating their menus to be lighter, lower-fat options. And supermarkets are no exception.
As we saw on tonight's show, the big players are expanding their range of pre-packaged meals and takeaway options.
Picking up some gourmet meals can save a lot of time and stress in the kitchen.
However, don't underestimate your local stores and butchers.
In February we met three butchers getting creative and cooking roast dinners for families.
On the menu is fresh leg of lamb seasoned with cumin, salt and pepper, complete with roast vegetables and cooked for you.
All you need to do is ring up and order it or you can even have it delivered. Butchers also claim their meat is up to 50 percent cheaper than in supermarkets.
