Nowadays, many types of food are easier to
prepare than they were in the past and this, according to my opinion, has
remarkably improved our lives. Let me justify my opinion.
In the past, people did not have modern appliances like microwave
ovens, food processors, automatic cookers, etc. and food preparing was
largely a manual work. Mostly, people used to take a lot of time to make
fire from wood and cooking also took a long time. Apart from that the
cleaning of the cooking utensils was also a though job. So a good amount
of daily time was lost on cooking rather than on other productive aspects.
I do not mean to say that food is not important, but if we could spend
less time in cooking and more time in doing other works then we could make
more progress in our lives. Today, due to the ease of food preparation we
are able to devote more time to productive work and hence our lives have
The new methods are not only easy they are more healthy as well. For
instance, the food cooked in microwave ovens are much more healthy than
the food cooked in conventional ovens or by other means, because
microwaves use minimal amount of fats.
Apart from this, a lot of readymade food is also available in the
market, which is ideal for people who are too busy to prepare their meals.
Not only that, but meals can be easily ordered from restaurants for the
people who are busy. This not only saves them time but also provides
employment to many people who prepare food for them in the restaurants. So
the people who are skilled in prparing food can also earn their living by
doing what they want or enjoy to do.
So with easy access to food as well as convenient modes of food
preparation, we have been able to improve our lifestyles and keep up with
the development of the human race.
