I’m Too Tired

Parade magazine (that Sunday newspaper insert) recently revealed that of over 2000 Americans interviewed, nine of ten buy convenience foods (microwavable sides to complete meals), which is 25% more than just two years ago. Because our society is faster moving than ever, those who responded said they buy such foods because of the quick time it takes to prepare them, they are too tired to cook, because they believe the convenience foods taste good and because they believe the convenience foods are nutritious (the reality is that you do have to pick and chose carefully). Nine out of ten adults eat dessert at least once a week. The favorite snack is chips (almost 17 pounds of potato chips per person, per year), followed by popcorn, the fruits, cookies and ice cream.8
