I made a video of a post from several years back, detailing some surprising findings on the Amish diet and food. These come from the book Nature & The Environment in Amish Life by David McConnell and Marilyn Loveless, which focuses on the Amish in the Holmes County, Ohio community. To take one example, here’s the first one:
1. Amish order pizza and other delivery food more than you think – According to the survey, Amish order pizza and other home-delivered meals about twice as often as non-Amish.
This varies a lot across the different groups however. The Old Order Amish affiliation order delivery about 10 times as often as the very traditional Swartzentruber Amish.
On the other hand, non-Amish eat out a lot more than Amish (over 6 times as often).
Getting a meal delivered can be especially convenient when you rely on the buggy, or expensive taxi travel to go any real distance.
If you’d prefer to read the post, check that out here. Otherwise, I hope you enjoy the video, which also goes into food topics including eggs, canning, and junk food:
