It's not only the lazyness or whatever you call it. It's also about what's available and how accessible it is.
I'm an European. I've made a trip to Canada & the U.S.A. a few week ago. (Mostly around Montreal and New York)
Everything was great and marvelous (the people are very nice, everything is huge and there are many cultural differences and things to see ...).
Except for ... the food. Too much on a plate and burnt, too greasy, too sweet, too salty. It mush wreak havoc with the taste buds.
"French" fries, fried with their skin ? Burnt, brown color like if they had been cooked in the same oil more than a couple of times ? Burned (black) meat but not cooked in the middle. Burned bread. Burned pizza.
Coffee that tastes like watered moka.
Pastries were so greasy I suspected them to be flammable and felt sick for a day after couple of them. (from Tim Horton, and to my surprise the food & service there is relatively better than Starbucks, at least in the few places I sampled it).
High-fructose-corn-syrup in many products (which makes you eat more by tricking your brain)
I had a few good meals too but it looked that to can only expect a good healthy dish from about $100 taxes and tip included (which I find quite expensive).
It's not difficult to make tasty AND healthy food. As long as you get fresh products (not OGM, not these mostly-water tomatos, ...).
Lazy: 150g brown rice, water, 200 vegetables, salt, olive oil. Steam-cook in an inox cooker (never any plastic) for 27 minutes (no need to watch) and voilÃf.
Less lazy: a bit of olive oil in a saucepan with a bit of oignons, cook them a bit (middle power), add peas, carrots, a bit of thym and a pinch of salt, cook and watch a few minutes, and eat that with a bit of fresh (home made?) bread. (I'm drooling.)
Bread (hand made) is very easy too.
