Nowadays, food has become easier to prepare. Has this change improved the way people live? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
In this modern era, each daily item is carefully overthought in order to figure out an easier replicated item. For instance, the existance of electronic devices such as automatic blinds to avoid, at least, the sense of body fatigue, even though it promotes your mental boredom. In the food industry, this easy way era has not gone unnoticed: each day millions of prepared pastas, paellas and another hundred types of meals are in the supermarket to keep you feed. In my personal opinion, as I will state on the following essay, it is not improving people's live. To begin with, the easy accessibility to all in that amount promotes an army of cough potatoes all over the world. It is a truth that it saves time in the daily routine but, I strongly believe that it is counterproductive. My main question is which is the reason to save that time: to rest more hours in the sofa or to have more time to watch the next episode of "Keeping up with the Kardashian's". It is overwhelming the sensation that the society works under the slogan "the less, the better". We can grate the tomatoe and slice the onion; we need more raw materials rather than a deal of shelves full of prepared tomatoe sauce. Furthermore, another important fact is the conservants. It is necessary the addition of non-natural ingredients in order to achieve a way to have an easier methodology to prepare food. Their key role is to let it last longer, but the main disadvantage is that our body does not need them. Our body is a machine that will be with us until the end, we have to feed it as best as possible. We do not want to crash it before finishing the race. In conclusion, to the best of my knowledge, it is not positively correlated the easier preparation of food and the improvement of people's live. The consequences are lazy people with less desires of being active, as well as, becoming more unhealthy in a world that tries as hard as possible to shape humans as beings that click buttons to achieve everything.
