How many times do you make a homemade meal a week? How many times do you eat out, or eat fast food? A new report from University of Michigan shows that Generation X adults, those of us born between 1961 and 1981, prepare an average of 10 meals a week and eat out or fast food an average of 3 times a week. The report also shows that Generation X men are very involved in grocery shopping and cooking in the kitchen, a much different role than that of their fathers.

People of Generation X are also more informed about their food than their parents were. They are concerned about how their food is grown, usually preferring to buy organic when available.
