The invention of the American meal: Why we don't eat pancakes for dinner (anymore)

The Daily Caller:

Why do we eat three meals a day and where did Americans’ eating habits come from? Those are questions scholar Abigail Carroll seeks to explain in her new book, ”Three Squares: The Invention of the American Meal.”

“I originally planned to write a book on the history of snacking in America, not a book about the American meal,” Carroll explained to TheDC in an interview about her new book. “I soon learned, though, that the story of the snack is wrapped up in a larger story about the meal — you can’t tell one story without the other, so in ‘Three Squares’ I tell both.” Facebook Fark Furl
