Easier Food Easier Life
I do agree with the title ‘Easier Food Easier Life’. Nowadays, people become so hectic with their life. That’s why the easier preparation of the food can saving their money and time. For example, it cost less money to make the easier food, like hamburger, sandwich, noddle, etc, which needed less of ingredients for making it. Compare it with the traditional food, from my country, Indonesia, such as rendang which need much of coconut milk in cooking process, plus many of various spices. Easier food also saving our time. Imagine how long it takes to cook the turkey on Thanksgiving day comparing 3 minutes noodle cooked.
But next the question is, does easier food makes life easier in healthy way?? For me the answer is ‘no, it does not’. The easier food like noodle, hamburger, sandwich, and other fast food contain less nutrition than the ordinary food (food with complete nutrition). As we know, easier food as well as fast food are full of fat, cholesterol, and preservative ingredient. This, for sure, will give the bad impact for human’s health if it’s consumed continuously in daily life. Being easy in food does not mean easy in health either. We should remain balancing the feed of fast food with the high consumption of the fruits and vegetables, for the vitamins and minerals. And don’t forget to drink at least 7 glasses of mineral water to fulfilled the nutrition of our body.
The easier food is make our life easier in money and time based. But it is not easier our life in health way on regular basic. As the result, in my opinion we do need to manage our food and keep in balance it for our healthy, time efficiency, and money saving. We do need manage our food as well as our life, because our food style is reflecting our life style as the result of our self.
