“Attempting to explain to my professional colleagues why, even in a world of convenience foods, it might be worthwhile to cook, I once used this activity to show how hard it is to answer a question such a “Does cooking pay?” — the title of an article I wrote for the Journal of Nutrition Education. To calculate “scientifically” whether cooking pays requires comparing the costs of cooking at home against the cost of purchasing an equivalent product in the market. This means that you have to place a monetary value on all the home inputs — the cost of raw materials and of heat for the cooking, what you’d get for your labor if you were being paid and so on — before you can ask whether it costs less, the same, or more to prepare, for example, stuffed baked potatoes at home than it does to buy them frozen.”

Joan Dye Gussow, “This Organic Life”

If you have been gentrified out of your old neighborhood and need to commute an hour to your job, your ecological footprint isn’t a lifestyle choice. It’s a choice in the same way that English Peasants, once kicked off the land, were “free” to find wage work — or starve.
