i'm aware this question has an obvious answer but i don't understand why so many people believe that junk food is faster and more filling when i know from personal experience that healthy homecooked food can be done in no time and taste spectacular,i would love to hear your view

I think people just want to grab something quick without the hassle of spending the time to make something. I prefer to make my own stuff at home.

all respect to you,i'm aware of the pace of life these days,mines no different)and i know that sometimes it is vitually impossible to cook a complete home meal but for me the worrying thing is that people dont even attempt to any more,thanx for your reply

I think it has to do with it is quick and easy. We live in a society that wants everything this mintue and I feel that is why a lot of people eat out. I do like to eat out myself but I feel it should be cut down as much as I can it costs a lot more than you think and I feel someone could save a lot of money if they would budget and make more meals at home. Nice post and happy mylotting to you.

I grew up in the 50's and 60's in those times there were no Mickey "D" or fast food places. We went to burger joints where we sat down and had to wait for them to cook them, had cokes and discussions! times were at a slower pace in those days, and I believe to this day that Mickey d's made this world as it is today!They put the USA in the hurry-up mode. For better or worse it's where we are. Personally I don't care for it! But we must accept reality and go with the fioW Have a good one! tdemex
