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

Food is one of the human’s basic indispensable needs necessary for life. The process of food preparation has changed over time where the time needed to prepare food has reduced dramatically. The decrease in time of food preparation process improved people’s lives. This is not true, in my opinion the reduction in food preparation time have various negative effects including bad effects on humans physical health, a negative effect on society and human relationships. Another important drawback of such change is that it makes man lose the pleasure and enjoyment of traditional and relatively longer acts of food preparation.

There is no doubt that the increased reduction in cooking and food preparation time has caused obvious unpleasant effect on humans’ health. I believe that since the food preparation has become easier and faster, then people would eat more quantities. For example, in the first world countries, the percentage of overweight people is high. Such obesity is linked with a number of diseases including diabetes and sleeping apnea. I also think people would go for larger quantities of food they like rather than following healthy diets.

Another important drawback of such change in food preparation trends is that is it reduces social interaction between members of the same family or even people living in the same place. In the past when the food preparation process took longer and was more complicated, people actually gathered to both prepare and have food. You would find neighbors having long conversations while cooking rice for example in the traditional old way on coal where there is only one place in each neighborhood to use coal for cooking. Such conversations strengthen human relationships and increase social bonds.

In the past, preparing food has always been a pleasurable activity for a lot of people. I consider it an art and one of the most enjoyable activities one can do. The act of traditional cooking and the atmosphere that is formed around that process causes man to relax and get a dose of self-satisfaction. I believe traditional cooking methods are better than meditation for human’s mental and emotional health.

Therefore, I strongly recommend shifting the food preparation process to traditional methods that took more time and relied on complex techniques. Traditional food preparation acts have benefits that out weight the fast and simple methods of cooking food. Weather you agree with me or not, I think no one can deny that the joy one can get when you cook and have food with other people.

Essay is well-written with use of articulate language
It is easily a 5 point essay
It can be improved by explaining the examples in a little bit more detail in order to get the reader the complete context of the meaning you are trying to convey
