Millennial Habits That Are Totally Different From The Baby Boomer Generation

Millennials have been accused of killing everything from napkins to “breastaurants”. Commonly described as narcissistic and entitled, this generation has become an easy target for frustrated baby boomers who are trying to cope with the changing times. Millennials are not like their parents, just like baby boomers were not like the generation who came before them… and that’s okay.

While accusing the generation of ruining things may seem like innocent fun, there is actually a lot that can be said for the habits and trends they have adopted. I mean, they’re actually talking about their personal finances and only buying houses they can actually afford. Millennials keep on proving that it’s okay to do things differently than their parents.

They Eat Differently

They eat out more, but not at the usual restaurants. Millennials prefer “fast casual restaurants” like Chipotle, Panera Bread, or Five Guys purely for the convenience factor. Despite eating out more, they tend to generally eat healthier. According to Forbes, they are eating 52% more vegetables than baby boomers.

Combine convenience with healthy habits and you have a growing trend of straight-to-your-door food product companies like Blue Apron. These deliver fresh ingredients to your door, saving millennials the hassle of shopping while still giving them an easy and healthy meal to prepare.
