When I was 18 years old (14 years ago), the kitchen was a place in which technology was very limited (at least in my country). Micro-wave ovens were not as popular (in my house we didn´t have a micro-wave) as they are now. If a person wanted to heat something in the oven, this person should had to rely on his / her memory and watch carefully the clock every 5 minutes. However, nowadays, the micro-wave automatically turns off when the timer reach zero. Or, in addition, if you still have to use the old oven, you can easily set an alarm in your smart-phone that rings at the moment that you have to turn off the oven. All these advancements and many others had changed the way people live and had made food easier to prepare. But, had this advancements improved people´s life? In this essay, I will explain the reasons why I consider that the fact that food has become easier to prepare has really improved the way people live.
First, the fact that food has become easier to prepare, has given people more time available to spend on leisure activities. For instance, yesterday I came back from work to my house at 7 pm and immediately after go out to the gym without worrying about what I would have cook for dinner after coming back from the gym. Why? Because when I came back from the gym, I take some frozen (already cooked) food from the freezer and cooked it in 10 minutes with the assistance of the microwave. Therefore, I spent only 10 minutes cooking, while may be 50 years ago, without the freezer and the microwave, I would had to spent huge time cooking (at least an hour) instead of going to the gym or practicing another healthy activity that improves my life quality. For this reason, less time cooking means more time not only to improve your health, but to improve spare time.
Secondly, as food has become easier to prepare, more people are capable of cooking the food they eat. Simultaneously, during the last years more and more people has become engaged with healthy habits. These 2 trends have mixed and as a result more people are capable of not only cooking their own food, but also cooking healthy and low calories food. This has given the people the possibility to enhance their body and mental health. For instance, nowadays surely you are more conscious on how the different kinds of foods affect your humor and your brain health. As a result, nowadays people are capable of improving their health by choosing between a wide range of healthy foods instead of the more limited range that existed in the old days, when healthy food was no so tasty for everyone.
In conclusion, the life style of people have greatly enhanced thanks to the fact that today, cooking food has become available to almost everyone. In addition, as the time required to prepare food have greatly decreased, people have more free time available to dedicate to the activities that really fulfill their lives and to the persons that really matters to them. So people, don´t spent time cooking, but instead take the opportunity and spend more time with your beloved ones!
