I too understand that a favorite food changes in taste when you are making your own at home. I used to partake of a MacDonald's 1/4lb every couple of weeks till I decided to check out it's nutritional information - OMG! did I ever change my mind about having one of those that often it has close to 900 calories and over 1000 mg of sodium
that doesn't include the fries or the drink... Needless to say unless I fall off the wagon big time I won't be partaking of that burger again for a while. Making food at home you can experiment with new flavours and of course reduce the sodium content.
