How many times do some nutrition and food writer or charlatan bark at you to spend more time in the kitchen? When clothing was industrialized, making clothes at home became a hobby or a niche. That is the same thing that will happen to the kitchen industry. We asked an AI what it would cost to make food from scratch if you include all the associated costs from reading a book to grocery shopping to buying ingredients at retail to cleaning up and here's what the AI said:
“The estimated cost of making an average homemade meal from scratch for one person in California can vary greatly and is difficult to estimate due to various factors such as local food prices, the cost of appliances and upgrades, time spent on various activities, etc. However, on average, it can cost anywhere from $10 to $30 or more per meal, including all the factors mentioned in your question.”
All in all, it takes about $10 to $30 to make an average meal in California. This doesn't include all the headaches, emotional pain, people not liking your foods, reading diet books and recipe books, and much, much more! How long must we continue down this madness when we can simply respect the art of cooking and turn it into a prized experience that brings people together and offers joy rather than make it into an enforced obligation to be healthy? You've been bamboozled by charlatans and vendors of junk processed information to make meals at home that cost as much as eating out at a restaurant.
