Eating 3 Meals a Day Is Harder than Physical Chemistry
By Alan Marnett on July 19th, 2010
Although we may feel like prisoners in lab sometimes, the clearest confirmation that this is not the case is that we’re not guaranteed three squares a day. That, and there’s a significantly lower chance of getting stabbed with a shank in lab. If it were up to a nutritionist, we’d eat three meals a day separated by healthy snacks like fruit or nuts to keep ravenous hunger at bay. But for most of us, life gets in the way of this practice and more often than we’d probably like, we end up skipping a meal.
In their recent Poverty Nutrition series (A Fugue in Egg Minor and Beans and Rice (& Their Infinite Variety)) Bonnie Barrilleaux and Shelly Gallendar transformed inexpensive ingredients into quick and tasty meals. We realize that no matter how easy a recipe, it still takes time to eat it – and on occasion, that much time’s just hard to find. Yet, most of us have enough freedom in our schedule to decide which meal is going to get the axe in the event we have to drop one. So which meal do you end up skipping most often?
