WSJ Article on Declining Home Cooking Shows What’s Wrong in America

A Quote Sums It Up

The reporting side of the WSJ, the good side, has an article on the fact that Americans are cooking less and shopping less for groceries.  This is already apparent in the growth of obesity one sees everywhere.

But in interviewing people this is what one person said.

“I don’t have the energy to work full-time and make my own food,” said Leah Steinberg, a 32-year-old unemployed software engineer who recently moved back in with her parents in St. Paul, Minn. Ms. Steinberg struggled to make healthy meals for herself while working, and now relies on her family to shop and cook while she searches for a new job.

Wow, so much in so little words.

      Unemployed in a hot market in a growing urban area.

      Moving back in with parents at age 32.

       Relies on family to get the groceries and cook for her. 

Yep, no offense intended Ms. Steinberg, but aren’t you the problem here?  And if you are presented as typical, isn't this the problem nationwide?
