Bad Food Matters

Mon, 29 Jan 2018 08:55:21 -0600

We can't all be gourmet cooks or diners. We love to watch the wizardry of TV chefs and fantasize about a dinner invitation. We aspire to make some changes in our kitchens and emulate our favorite cookbook authors--someday. We even buy hundreds of dollars' worth of gadgets and cookware. But in reality, most Americans prefer their foods fast, packaged or frozen (and inexpensive). We are a country of convenience foods, and there is no shortage to fill that need. Microwaves can produce a full meal in less than 15 minutes, and time is of the essence when you're hungry, tired and headachy from a long commute home. Who needs ovens? Latchkey children can forage in the cupboards and find a snack when mom isn't home, happily munching away in front of a video game (and you can bet it's not celery or carrots). Restaurants multiply faster than we can keep up, providing a variety of choices and prices. So let's shelve those celebrity chefs, forget the sham and pretense that we all dine on healthy, home cooked foods and admit it: bad food matters.

But as more and more immigrants crossed the ocean, they brought their native foods and plants with them, creating more choices. They certainly weren't dining like French royalty, but the colonists enjoyed their American cuisines and ate foods which may surprise you.
