What has Food Become The nineteenth century sparked a whole new era for meal settings As the industrialized revolution grew people found it less and less practical for families to eat dinner midday These dinners began emphasizing the importance of food people ate as it became a symbol of social class However time has changed these traditions People are becoming more held up with our active society and these distractions have begun to cause us to place signi cantly less time and emphasis on proper dinner meals Are we blinded by our own society that we no longer treat our our meal and meal settings the same compared to the 19th century How has it changed since then As an American I feel as if we are straying away from the other cultural eating norms and creating our own the fast food norm As Mintz states In all of the processes connected with American eating the element of time is extremely relevant yet barely noticed Over the years we ve focused on creating the convenient meal that we start to turn to take outs the infamous fresh frozen meals Campbell Cans and Top Ramen As a whole we ve stopped caring about our appreciation of food and family My social norm has taught me that maximizing efficiency is key to standing out in this world America has pressured me to believe that I shouldn t care about what I feed my body and most certainly not where my food originates from However this shouldn t be the case We have created this idealized belief of efficiency that has caused us to disconnect ourselves from the natural world Yet if we were grow out of our ignorant shells we would understand that our society could benefit immensely if we cared more about how and what we ate Mintz In conclusion our culture is blinding our judgments as individuals Instead of focusing on which restaurant to Visit next or which fresh frozen food to try out next we should focus on what we re eating where it came from and who we re eating the meal with Implications may arise when people argue that the reason that we re not focusing on what we re eating is because our state of mind chooses not to not because our society has pushed us this way
