Eating is one of the essential activities we, as humans, do. Eating is needed, wanted and craved by people. It is the one that satisfies our need is to eat food. But, food is a source of conflict for mankind. Even with the advancement of science and technology, there is still a shortage of food supply all over the world.Even with the new techniques of cultivating crops and the new ways of breeding cattle, hunger is still prominent all around the world. People in third world countries are dying due to hunger and malnutrition. We may have already become more civilized and advanced than our ancestors; however we are still nowhere close as they were in finding enough food for everybody.One of the reasons why there is food shortage is improper food management. This means that people waste too much ingredients on their food. They try to overkill the ingredients of a simple recipe. This excess use of ingredients is wasteful, bashful and downright wrong. When people use too much ingredients in cooking their food, they are also depriving these ingredients to others. This would then result to scarcity of ingredients. Stronger people can easily gain access to these ingredients. Weaker people are left with just minimal ingredients for their food.
In truth, the world has already progressed to the point where crop yields are far better than it was in the past. Livestock has already been bred and cross breed in order for a superior livestock to arise and become our staple food. Yet, not everyone has the access to this kind of crops and other resources. Only the rich can afford it. Some people have to hunt their own meat which is a very rare activity done today.One of the reasons why they hunt is that they cannot afford the cow meat in the market. If people belonging in the higher echelon would stop the practice of buying too much meat then maybe, these other people belonging to the lower echelon of society can afford the cow meat. This would happen under the law of supply and demand.So how can people who are already used to the lifestyle of extravagant food and beverages, help in solving the world’s problem of food shortage? This is my answer to you, cheap but healthy cooking. This way of cooking is one of the few answers addressing the improper way of handling food. You should learn what does cheap and healthy cooking mean and how it is applied, and what its benefits are.
Cheap and healthy refers to the way a person cooks his or her own food. He or she must only use minimal ingredients in cooking food. Reusing cooking oil is also recommended; however, there is a limit how many times it should be used. Too much reusing of oil would poison a person. This way of cooking promotes ample cooking. Meaning, one should only cook for the right amount of food for a number of people. This is done so that all of the people eating the food would consume it all.
