I would greatly appreciate it, if you could provide your valuable inputs on my essay.
Question: Nowadays, food had become easier to prepare. Has this improved the way people live?
Nowadays, developments in science and technology areas related to the food industry has lead to quick-fix recipes and ready-eat-dishes that have helped in making food a lot easier to prepare. And in my personal view, this has improved the way people live. I give the following reasons to support my view.
Firstly, it has brought a significant improvement to the lives of working mothers. Hectic and jam packed schedules result in work hours exceeding 10 hours a day and this means that mothers have their hands full, with cooking food at home and working through out the rest of the day. As it becomes easier to prepare food, mothers are able to get more time to pursue leisure activities as well and this improves the atmosphere at home and also helps them to remain fit and healthy. For example, my mother used to have a tough time fixing meals, taking care of household work and working till late hours as well. But over the years, I have seen that she has had more time at home to enjoy leisurely activities as well and I feel that this is mainly because the time she had had to spend in the kitchen has decreased considerably. This has improved her lifestyle and has had a positive effect on that of our family as well.
Another reason is that the fact that food has become easier to prepare has helped students living by themselves, working bachelors etc. When you live alone, and if you are working, you hardly have time to manage all aspects of life well and this usually takes its toll on your eating habits. I personally know people who have lived on just bread and butter for more than a couple of years when they had to stay alone either for studies or other reasons. These people just don’t find time to fix themselves a proper meal and this affects their health. Meals, that are easy to prepare, have helped such people to live on a larger variety of dishes as they do not need to put in too much effort to fix themselves a decent meal. This has resulted in healthier lifestyles and helps them concentrate on their work better as well.
For these reasons and many more, I firmly believe that, the fact that food has become easier to prepare, has vastly improved the lifestyles of people from different walks of life, and have made their lives far easier and comfortable.
Thanks and regards.
