Oversized Protein

Excessive behavior is reflected in the rise of oversized protein dishes

Implications - While traditional burgers and sandwiches offer a convenient source of daily protein, societal emphasis on advancement and excess prompts traditional meals to be re-invented in a much more grandiose manner. Catering to consumers who desire above and beyond the ordinary, restauranteurs are turning to oversized creations of classic protein dishes to add shock and visual allure to traditionally simple dishes. This speaks to a desire for consumption that goes beyond nutritional gain, toward more superfluous and expressively flamboyant alternatives.
