We always had excellent food aboard ship, at Naden, Stad and Windsor Park. Ate at Shilo and in Winnipeg a few times too and they had pretty good food there.

Peach flavored instant oatmeal, cooked over an MSR, with pine needles and/or unidentified floating objects in the snowmelt water. MMMMM, now there's a breakfast. /sarcasm The hardcore would brew their tea in the oatmeal pot without rinsing. I always brought an extra pot for tea water. Guess I'm just fussy.

But you still used the yellow snow for your tea because it tasted better..... 8)

It's pretty sad that the biggest reason people aren't eating cereal is because there are dishes afterward.

I could understand it if it was because of the added sugar or the fact that it isn't filling or some other nutritional factor, but dishes?

I usually stick up for the younger generation, but this is indefensible IMHO.

Who cares. It's not as if cold cereal contains vital nutrients found nowhere else. In fact quite the opposite, most of it is cardboard with vitamins and sugar. I have no idea what Millenials eat that doesn't require rinsing out a dish, but whatever, they're not lying in the street starved to death, so let em get on. Probably should invent a tube delivery system for nutritional mash that they can stick in their mouth, so they can keep using both hands for texting.

Or maybe they just go to that Hipster Chef.

It's spoiled brats like these that make the millennial generation as a whole (I was born in 1982) look bad.

I'll admit that I reuse a dish every now and again, but that's because I underestimated how many dishes I would need when I moved into my new place last year, and I used them all up before starting the dishwasher, since the dishwasher wasn't full enough to justify turning it on yet.

I make a point of doing regular housekeeping every two weeks, and keeping up a maintenance schedule for the sump pump, the furnace filter, and other stuff.

Seriously, how hard is that?

I think this article is a bit off.

The reason why i don't eat cereal is because i don't make enough time in the morning to eat it, not because there is a whole 2 dishes to wash. Like seriously, if they aren't eating cereal because it makes 2 dishes, they wont be eating lunch or dinner either because those make upwards of a dozen dishes each.


I suspect there is anti-millennial bias in both the study and the article about it with the objective of making millennials out to be lazier than they really are.

When i do make the time to eat breakfast, it's usually one of three things; Eggs Benedict (holy dishes!), sunny side up eggs, or over easy eggs with cajun spice. Sides will be either potatoes, fried perogies, or toast, and the meat is either bacon or steak (often both).

See, I'm not lazy about my breakfast, i just value sleep more than food at 4am in the morning.

As the saying goes, one bad apple spoils the bunch...

Frankly, the whole argument about how terrible kids are nowadays is one that goes back to Aristotle and absurd IMHO, which is why I don't join in the bashing often found in threads like this.

It matters if, as this article notes, their biggest concern is dishes and not nutrition, then it speaks to their work ethic in my books.

As I said, if people don't want to eat cereal because of its poor nutritional aspects, that makes total sense. That's why I hardly ever eat cereal. But if it's because they are too lazy to wash a bowl and a spoon, then there is something seriously wrong.

If this article is correct - and I'm not sure that it is - then they probably eat things like Pop Tarts, breakfast burritos or other single serve breakfast items.

Pop Tarts and breakfast burritos... WAY more nutritional than cereal. :lol:

So since this is such a hot topic, I thought I'd actually read the article:

Quote:
Instead, millennials are embracing hot cereal, yogurts, breakfast sandwiches and smoothies as the new breakfast of champions, according to marketing experts.
I'm with the millenials on this. except for the smoothies. And these things have just as many dishes to clean up.

Quote:
The company suggests manufacturers should focus their efforts on healthier, more natural alternatives that are easier to prepare,
Seems to me the person out to lunch is the x'r or boomer who wrote that. What is easier to prepare than cold cereal?

Bought a great little counter-top dishwasher in my single days. All my friends were wowed... did like 4 dishes and cutlery, maybe one pot at a time. Took 20 times as long as by hand...
But cutting out your cereal over hosing off 1 bowl and 1 spoon? Come on!
