The Evolution of Food

evolution-food

In PreHistoric times, the gathering and hunting of food dictated the daily life. Today we have the luxury of enjoying a wide variety of food at our convenience!

Before agriculture was understood, primitive tribes relied on wild crops and animals for food. As times went by and civilisation started to settle, people started exploring seeding and harvesting crops, meat and milk farming.

 

Food and Society

People used to eat whatever was in season and only food that was grown locally. Most  food was not readily available and meat was only consumed during special occasions since it was not available in mass amounts as animals were bred in their natural state. 

With the advances in agriculture and trade, most people do not rely just on seasonal produce and the diversity in food groups increased. A greater variety of food is now available, however this may not be the best option from a nutritional point of view. Seasonal food and naturally grown food is much more nutritious as it still contains most of the natural vitamins. Mass produced and human made food, although much more convenient, lacks the nutritional value and may contain additives and chemicals, which may cause more harm than good after prolonged intake.

Having said so, the previous ways of agriculture are both more humane and more healthy!

    I prefer how it was years ago, fresh food from farms – no chemical and all the things we find these days! Sometimes I just want to move to a little place where it still has that traditional feel to it…..They were the good days! πŸ™‚

      Totally agree! Sometimes I find it difficult to find fresh food especially veg! Wish everyone will go back to naturally grown food πŸ™‚ xx
