    Nowadays, food has become much easier to prepare. Because of the rapid pace of the world’s development, time seems to be more precious than ever. Therefore, any methods which can save human’s time including the reduction of cooking time seem to be worth for some people. However, in my view, the use of package or instant food should adversely effect on our way of life.

    Package or instant food is not only tasteless but also lacking in any necessary nutrient. The most popular instant food should be humbugger which contains high degree of fat and carbohydrate. We can get only a small percent of vitamin including other important nutrient from these kinds of food. As a result, many teenagers who love to eat “FAST” food suffer from obesity and high blood pressure. Moreover, it is necessary for instant’s food manufacturer to produce foods with mild taste in order to serve every kinds of customers. However, everyone has one own favorite taste and always find that instant food is tasteless compared with self-prepared foods.

    Moreover, cooking considers one of the best activities that everyone in the family can joy. In my family, while my mother cooks, the rest of the families always go to the kitchen. Sometimes, we help her cook; sometimes, we just go to talk our daily experience to her. Therefore, for my family, cooking can strengthen the relationship of everyone in the family.

    Finally, cooking is also the best ways to relax. Since cooking is also one kind of art. While enjoy cooking, we always temporarily forget any stress from study, work or any problems. Compared with other methods for relaxing such as watching television, listening radio or playing video game, cooking seems to be better activity. We can not only relax but also get an exercise while cooking, cleaning dishes or even strengthening up kitchen.

    In conclusion, even thorough, instant food can help us save our precious time, I think we loss man valuable things from deciding not to cook. We not only have to endure tasteless food but also do not get enough nutrients from eating instant food. We also destroy the time of our family. Finally, cooking can also help us relax from any stress activities.

    Nowadays, food has become easier to prepare. Has this change improved the way people live? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

    Has food become easier to prepare? Yes, it has. And I think this change has improved the way people live because of several reasons. It saves their time and energy, makes cooking more pleasant and quicker. To better understand my point of view I have to explain what I mean under the expression “ food has become easier to prepare”. I mean that buying raw products, meat, fish, vegetables and fruit, people can prepare dishes faster and easier by using modern kitchen appliances such as blenders, grinders, juice extractors, electric cookers etc. This way of cooking preserves all nutrients. Thus, these foods are nourishing and useful for people.

    Modern life is very fast. People have to do more in a lesser time. It requires to set a priorities and usually food is not so important as job and career. Besides, women who used to do cooking in all times are not available any more for this job as much as before. They have their own careers too. In such fast race of modern life time is a very valuable thing. That’s why an easier and faster way of preparing food definitely improve quality of people life saving their time and energy.

    Using kitchen appliances is much more pleasant than doing everything by hand. You can blend some fruits, milk and eggs and get a very nourishing cocktail. It would be much more difficult to do manually. And also you can grind some vegetables and get a tasty salad. Pressure cooker can help you to prepare your dishes very quickly ( meat will be ready in 15 minutes ). Cooking in this way may relax you and even be a good rest.

    To sum up I would like to say that as present life is very stressful and fast food can improve it only by being nourishing and easy-to-prepare. Using modern kitchen appliances make cooking easier and help to preserve necessary nutrients.

It saves their time and energy, makes(what is the subject of this verb? If your answer is the previous sentence, I think you should use "making" right here) cooking more pleasant and quicker. To better understand my point of view I have to explain what I mean under the expression “ food has become easier to prepare”.

    Modern life is very fast. People have to do more in a lesser time. It requires to set a priorities(a priority or priorities??) and usually food is not so important as job and career(job and career, is it redundant?). Besides, women who used to do cooking (why do not you use cook as a verb?)in all times are not available any more for this job as much as before. They have their own careers too. In such fast race of modern life time is a very valuable thing. That’s why an easier and faster way of preparing food definitely improve (what is the subject of this verb, if "way" , I think you had better use "improves") quality of people life saving their time and energy.

    Hi all,
    this is my essay; Hope you'll help me.... I really appreciate your works, you are precious for us![:o)]
    max


    Modern technologies have made food easier to prepare, and in my opinion, this has been an improvement of the way people live because they have been able to spend less time on cooking, eat a greater variety of food and be able to cook by theirselves everything.

    First of all, easier food to prepar has allowed people to save time for their affairs: in fact nowaday there are a lot of people that have not the time for cooking instead of the time people used to spend in kitchen several decades ago. Businessmen, full time students and many other people are too busy to learn about cooking techniques, so these people have taken benefits from the new generation of food. Let’s think of frozen food: they just need to be unfrozened to be ready to eat. So, cooking in a faster way has became part of the modern life.

    An other thing to consider is that people can now eat a greater variety of food: in fact, thanks to the kind of food easier to preparate, we can preparate elaburated dishes like oriental, french or italian ones. A lot of people love these kinds of dishes, but, because of their lack of cooking knowledge, they weren’t able to cook them. Nowadays frozen food get easier cooking those complicated dishes and allow everyone to prepare them without any difficulties.

    Last but not least we have to consider that, thaks to these kinds of food, people can now cook by theirselves, without going to restaurants or somewhere else. That is important not only because, as I said before, it allows them to save time, but also to save money; so, as a result, they have time and money to spend in other activities.

    So I think that frozen food and every other kind of techniques that has made food easier to preparate, are really an important thing for us because it is improving our life-style it and is helping many people in saving time, money and eating whatever they want.

    Today lots of ready-made,frozen and a variety of food is available in the market .This has really made the prepartaion of food very simple than it used to be earlier. It has a great impact on the life style and health of people.
    First, the eating habbits of people, round the globe, are changing . Second , the varity of food is easily available with less efforts and hence people can spend a lot of time in other imporatnt things . Finally the food industry and the supporting indutries are booming and giving employmennt to lots of people and comforting the lives of everyone.

    Unlike olden days, when there was no avaibility of diffrent home devices such as mixers, grinders and food processor and microwave ovens cooking good food was indeed a tedious job . Today technology and great minds have changed the scene .There are lots of kitchen devices which makes the cooking really simple .There are lots of food companies which have made the cooking process even more simpler by making out new products like Frozen food, cut and chopped vegetables and lots of other things . Some familiar examples of such products are Knor soups, Kellocks cereals, Tortilas,Dominoes pizzas,noodles which are really healthy and easy to make and are liked by people all over theworld . Moreover, these companies make the food products by taking in to consideration eating habbits of poeple all over the world and also with certain health problems . For example A diebetic patient can now eat sweets because of the sugar free sweetener in tese products . The frozen food which is half cooked is also very simple to prepare that even children can make thier meals . Pizzas which were originally prepeared in Itali are now famous all over the world.The processed food can be used for a longer duration hence can be exported all over world .

    Apart from chane in eating food habbits, people who are working 7 by 24 hrs a week can make healty and tasty food for themselves in hardly any time . People now can take out more time for thier work and still manage to get good food.
    Because of all these advancement in food industry and revloutionary food products making food is really easy now a days .

    Here is my essay on this topic:
    Kindly evaluate it.,


    There is no doubt about the fact that food has become easier to prepare. Earlier, when one had to prepare pickles, one had to go through the entire time consuming process of buying the vegetable, drying it, dessicating it further with salt and then curing it. Comparatively, nowadays, pre-dried vegetables are available and the whole process is much easier. Similarly, gone are the days, when one had to knead wheat, prepare sun dried tomatoes, and then bake the pizza in a wood oven at 590 degree celsius.Nowadays, readymade pizza is available. One has to simply buy it and heat it in the microwave and it is ready to eat.
    From these examples, it seems that food has become easier to prepare, and hence, we save a lot of time which we would have spent on cooking. But such a conclusion is open to debate.

    The pre-processed food industry is worth several million dollars. Canned foods and smoked ham are available off the shelf. With amenities like these available nowadays, one would assume that the time wasted by ordinary people at cooking is saved. Further on, more time should be available for recreation, sports and entertainment. Yet, the average person hardly has time available to spend with his family. A similar situation existed before the advent of pre-processed or pre-cooked foods. Ordinary people are as busy as before. Thus it is unfair to completely assume that since the preparation of food has become easier, our way of living has become easier.

    On the other hand pre-prepared food is full of additives meant to preserver it. Sodium chloride, monosodium glutamate and sugar are a few of these additives. It has been found that pre-prepared foods contain a high amount of these chemicals as compared to normal food products. Excess amount of sodium chloride can lead to many diseases such as hypertension and heart disease. Each of these diseases can lead to fatalities. Heart disease has killed more people thatn most other diseases on this planet. Also, excess amount of saturated fat present, can lead to blockage of arteries which can lead to stroke which leads to paralysis in most cases. Also, monosodium glutamateis carcinigenic. Prolonged use of food containing it, can definitely cause cancer. One must also take note of the fact that onlya fraction of all the additives used in pre-prepared food have been mentioned above. Hence, the fact that food that is easier to prepare can lead to several life-threatening diseases negates its ability to improve the way we live.

    The cuisine of a country is a very important part of its culture. Recipes have been passed down the ages from grandmothers to grand daughters. They have survived the test of time. Although it does not seem like a serious issue, one must consider what would happen if everyone started using food that is easier to prepare. The centuries old recipes would be forgotten. A very important link to our culture would be broken. Also, traditionally cooking food together was a means of bonding between famliy members. Stories were told, jokes were exchanged and gossiping used to be done during cooking.On the other had, when food is easier to prepare, the process of cooking becomes impersonal and bonding never happens. Thus, though cooking has become asier, it has ngeatively affected the process of social bonding which is of importance to our life.

    There is no doubt abbout the fact tat ease in preparation of food has made things a lot easier. It has enabled ordinarly people to cook food that rivals the kind of food cooked by chefs. Yet, one cannot overlook the fact that it is hard to find a direct relation between food being easier to cook and our life becoming easier.
