Has abundance destroyed our appreciation for food?

Many of us are fortunate to have well-stocked kitchens, and yet food and eating has never been so stressful since the days when we didn’t have enough. Once upon a time, humans spent their days hunting and gathering food and securing shelter for themselves.
