Food Culture in the U.S.

Here is an interesting article in the New York Times about how Mc Donald’s have managed to transform something as healthy as oatmeal into a processed sugar and calorie bomb. The author makes a good point in that seemingly fast food in fact often takes longer time than cooking at home. Unfortunately, food processors here seem to have done their best in ruining people’s relationship with proper food and in making people believe that cooking with natural ingredients is complicated. Like making a bowl of oatmeal. Do read the article! With rapid urbanization across the world, this phenomenon is likely to spread, and with it the negative impact it has on our health and the environment. And perhaps most importantly, the loss in real taste that comes with it and in the joy of having a good meal!
