Daniel, that article to which you directed us stated, 

"Sales of coffee pods grew by 138,324 percent between 2004 and 2014, according to data from Euromonitor."

Good grief! Don't they count the time, effort and money it takes to go to the store and buy all those pods? Not to mention the pod garbage that results!
Cary grinds our coffee every morning; he washes up after himself and he never leaves so much as a crumb in the kitchen. 
I have two slices of Dave's Killer Bread, toasted, with dollops of jams, or hummus, or peanut butter, and coffee. I clean up after myself. 

There is kind of a Zen to the routine, a flow of activity that occurs daily with a great deal of calm. Nice and quiet, peaceful, calm before the chores begin.

I often get spaces and punctuation wrong, stupid Dutch!

I avoid the prepared foodstuffs and I do little kitchenwork. Today: fruit and nut smoothie for breakfast (15 minutes work), bread and cheese for lunch (3 minutes), and a French beans, tomato, tofu and sambalmix for dinner (20 minutes). Washing up once a day costs 20 minutes. Easy enough, but perhaps not to a millenial...

Pretty, but I keep thinking, all that food coloring!

According to various sources, breakfast cereal is falling in popularity with millennials because it is too inconvient. It's too much work to wash the bowl.

Apparently, some have other reasons, such as, it's too sugary (true if you buy kids' cereals)' or it's sad (huh?) or it might spill out of the bowl onto their computer keyboard. Also, it's boring.

We dont eat dry breakfast cereals at our house, but not because it's inconvenient to wash a bowl. Although bowl washing is tedious - you have to walk over to the sink, turn on the fawcet, maybe lean over and open the dishwasher and put the bowl onto the rack. I sometimes eat malto-meal or grits. ning has oatmeal. I wash the pan, such hard labor :-)

Randy, that sounds like a great idea.  I used to make vegetable pies using cauliflower or broccoli as the main vegetable, and a cream soup mix such as cream of mushroom soup, as the filler.  I don't know if that's like what your recipe book shows, but I liked those a lot.

I imagine the pie crust is the most work.  But you already know that part!

For some reason, my appetite has waned recently. But a library book might change that. It's called Dinner Pies which is all about how to make them and recipes. They look and sound delicious, and I haven't had one since my grandmother's 50 years ago. Looks like a lot of work, however.

It's tough trying to become more of a vegetarian when one's daughter gives you 5 bison burgers. Emily picked them up at the farmers market they go to a week ago. (They take their own produce.) I'm on an alternate day vegetarian plan. I figure 180 days a year without meat is a start--sort of a quasi-vegetarian. I do the same with sugar.
