Re: Kentucky Fried to use no-trans-fat oil..
I'm 38. 30 years ago, Kentucky Fried Chicken (I'll use the full name, because then they used it...) was the thing you got at birthday parties. It was such
I remember my cousin's dining room, a bunch of us sitting around the table, drizzling runny honey on the lovely coated chicken pieces.
I don't remember it being as greasy as it is today (I had some a month ago...first time in eons!). Plus, the 'secret recipe' supposedly changed.
My point (or question?) is that in my (our) lifetime(s), the population's eating habits have changed...What are the main reasons? Individually, and socially?
The proliferation of fast food joints? Lack of time? Not knowing how to cook?
I find that after years of some haphazard cooking (no one to cook for, and just not a priority), I'm trying to establish and maintain the habits I developed as a child -- with my parents' cooking. Balanced, healthy dinners. Will that change when I start working more? I don't think so -- because now it's part of my knowledge base: eating healthfully is important to me.
(I don't ignore the other food groups -- snacks & beer...I just try to eat everything else from the whole foods categories!)
