Chowdown With Chip – The Most Popular American Meal
The most popular American meal is not hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken or spaghetti... it's leftovers.
Hold on, I said POPULAR, not FAVORITE. According to a study by the Food Marketing Institute, 58% of Americans are having leftovers for dinner on any given night. With the tough economy, people are eating out less these days, while two-thirds of Americans are buying less fancy foods and 60% are buying store brands. At least home cooking is healthier than going out to eat, according to 39% of the study participants. Another 53% think they are now eating healthier, while 41% of us claim to be "very concerned" about the nutritional value of what we eat.
