Cook Like it Was Your Job

Do you cook?

As Professor Deirdre McCloskey once noted, “[in] 1900 a typical American household of the middle class would spend 44 hours [a week] in food preparation,” and most of that work fell to women. In other words, back in the days of churning one’s own butter and baking one’s own bread, food preparation took up the same hours as a full-time job. That estimate includes time spent on purchasing, cooking and serving food as well as dishwashing. Keep in mind that in addition to cooking, women were also often responsible for cleaning the home, laundry, mending clothes, and tending to children.

Is it a bad thing that many have time to do other things? I do cook and could stand spending less time at it. Do not want to sacrifice the quality of nutrition and awareness of the food I eat though.
