The middle class people ate meat at the heart of their meals, along with a few side dishes that also included meat and a bit of fruits or vegetables (Culture of England). Working classes did not have butcher meat, as it was a luxury for them. “The working class ate small diets of bread, butter, potatoes and bacon” (Lambert). After more steamships were able to ship materials to and from England, the price of grain went down, and it created a better diet for the working class. The rural poor could not afford much food either, so the fruits and vegetables that appeared in their meals came from personal gardens rather than the store. At the beginning of the 19th century, large varieties of food were limited at larger grocery stores. In order to help the store owners and customers, people “went to several small shops, all selling different types of food” (Barrow). This helped shop owners get more money without running out of supplies, and the people easily found what they were looking for. The middle class followed examples that upper classes set, and one of those examples is midday
Millions of Americans wake up every morning and make a decision about what they will eat for breakfast to jump-start their day. Some may reach for a bowl of Cheerios or multigrain cereal, while others may opt for yogurt, toast, or a pastry. Some people choose to wash down their breakfast with pulp-free orange juice, while some may drink a protein drink or an invigorating coffee to get them going. For lunch, many people will consume sandwiches piled high with meats and cheeses or perhaps a cheap meal from the nearest fast food restaurant. When it comes to dinner, this meal may vary from family to family, but most dinners consist of a starch or two, a kind of meat, some variation of a vegetable on a good day, and a dessert to finish out the day.
Italians take their food very seriously. The main meal of the day is at lunch time. The word for 'the lunch ' is il pranzo. You start with antipasti: these are nibbles like olives, cheese and salami, followed by… il primo (the first course which is pasta or minestrone) then il secondo (the main course which is meat or fish with salad or vegetables) then there is fruit and perhaps a dessert. Finally there is espresso coffee.
On my lunch break I check to see if I have received text messages, personal emails, and of course see the newest updates of Facebook (slowly realizing how addicted I am to this form of social media). Lunch is usually simple, deli meat from Aldi’s or a microwavable meal. I am not sure if either of these are purchased because of commercials I’ve seen on television or out of convenience of making packing a lunch easier.
Have you ever tasted school cafeteria food? I don’t think you would want to. In school story books, do you have characters saying that the food tasted good at school cafeterias? Nope. Why is this? Cafeteria food is often cheap, bought in bulk, high in calories, malnutritious, and microwaved. Student polls and opinions prove this. Therefore, this leads to a suggestion: Healthier, tastier foods and a better, advanced lunch system should be implemented.
The personalization of the Standard American Diet is based more on tastebuds, cravings, and convenience, rather than learnings about life science. Thriving on routines, some wake up daily to savor eggs and bacon, while others scarf down coffee and a bagel with cream cheese on the go. Lunchtime favorites may be a sandwich and chips or a burger and fries. After all the carbs, fats, and sodium, some may hunger for pizza and beer or pasta and wine for dinner.
Thinking back to Elementary, Middle, and High school, school lunches were not a particularly appealing memory. I remember waiting in the lines, often backed up, holding foam plates of bland and unappealing food. To explore the factors of how school lunches have come to be, we should start at the beginning of government funded school lunch in America.
HELP! I'm dying!... because school lunches are cringing! Students should be allowed to leave class during lunch hours, and be trusted to leave and return back in time for their next class. If high schools gave students this right it would teach them how to manage their time wisely and it would help them become responsible. Students who leave campus during lunch are most likely end up going to a local business to get their lunch which is both good for the students and the local businesses. Students with special food allergies could leave campus during lunch and go to their homes and get food they could actually eat and not be worried that their food could have been cross contaminated to something they're allergic to. Students who leave campus during lunch would come back energized and ready for their next classes.
When lunch boxes first came out they were actually metal boxes to store your food in. The first lunch boxes were usually old recycled tobacco boxes. After a while, kids started to want to bring their own lunches to school with them. The first commercial lunch box was starring mickey mouse. In the golden age (1950s-1970s) decorating lunch boxes with pop culture had started to happen. Later on, the metal lunch box had soon gone out of business because people had started to make plastic lunch boxes, which were cheaper to make. The polyester bag had become even more popular because it was easily stored in many different places. People believe that the evolution of lunch boxes will have grown enough to be able to heat up your lunch if it is necessary,

Some time ago Somerset Maugham said that to eat well in England, you should have breakfast three times a day.' To be perfectly honest, most British food was considered by many people as terrible. It included overcooked vegetables, boring sandwiches and greasy sausages. It was definitely not an enjoyable experience. However, these are now only stereotypes. Things have changed a lot and food has become very important in British culture. Not only TV cooks are more famous than writers, but also their recipes and books are well-known across the Europe. The New British cuisine' is changing the fish and chips' image and has become multicultural. There are about 80 different international cuisines and British restaurants may compete with those
