Food defined: eat for pleasure
Do you ever
wonder where the food we eat comes from nowadays, what is food made of? Does it
come from nature? Or is made in a lab by science? Do we eat for pleasure? The way
we eat has something to do with our culture and beliefs? Food is any substance
that contains vitamins and nutrients, food is composed of many different
chemical substances ‘macro nutrients'(major nutritional components that are
present in relative large amounts, such as protein),’micro nutrients'(major
nutritional components that are present in relatively small amounts, such as
vitamins);water, and roughage(dietary fiber).many other components can also be
present in food.by applying their findings, they are responsible for developing
the safe, nutritious in food and innovative packing that line supermarket
shelves everywhere, as the stewards of the field of food. Scientist study the physical,
microbiological, and chemical makeup of food, their study certainly provides
food for thought more example sentences their comments helped us to clarify our
arguments and provide some food, finally these terms give us a working
definition and standard for measurement. A significant part of the pleasure of eating
is in one’s accurate consciousness of their lives, “eating is an agricultural act,
eating ends the annual drama of the food economy that begins with planting and birth.
Most eaters however, are no longer aware that this is true” (Wendell berry).
We buy what
we want or what we are been persuading to want, through the advertisements,
food products comprised the largest category of all advertisements to children
in virtually all countries. In addition, as food companies begin to implement
child-targeted campaigns to promote” healthy” food consumption, it will be
necessary to compare the efficacy of taste versus nutrition messages, and those
that encourage lower consumption of unhealthy foods on overall diet outcomes.
what our great-grandmother ate, because at this point even our mother and
perhaps even our grandmother is disconcerted as the rest of us, to be safe we
need to go back at least a several generations, to a time before the arrival or
most modern foods.(john yudkin, a British nutritionist whose early alarms about
the dangers or refined carbohydrates were overlooked in the 1960s and 1970s,
once advised, “just do not eat anything your Neolithic ancestors would not have
recognized and you’ll be ok”(Michael pollan),I am not going to go into a huge
discussion on eating organically. Eat like your great grandparents and improve
your health; sounds crazy but it is true! You might think that in modern 21st
century our food would be superior to what your great or great-great
grandparents ate. But I would disagree. Stop eating pre-meals and thinking
because it is marked “natural” and that you are doing good, studies show they
can increase gain weight, diabetes, heart disease and the whole list of
medicals conditions even allergies, get yourself educate on GMos and their
health risks we should embrace our heritage through our culture’s food but we
should also become more informed about other cultures by trying their foods.it
is also operates as an expression of cultural identity, it is important to
remember that each dish has a special place in the culture to a which it
belongs, and is special to whose who prepare it.
cultures have diversified their food by means of preparation, cooking methods,
and manufacturing, food is an important part of religious adherence and
spiritual rituals for many convictions including Christianity, Judaism, Islam,
Hinduism and Buddhism the role of food in cultural rituals and in religious
beliefs is a complex topic For example, in the Hindu Buddhist, Jewish, and
Muslims religions the consumption of both pork and beef is frowned upon, they
may need to find ways to slightly change their recipes to keep the taste and
cut the fat, sugar and salt, without giving up in their culture’s special foods.
In this lesson
we’ll learn what industrial food chain is,Industrial
food chain is a diagram showing how food is transferred in our food industry,
choosing fresh, local produce and meat can have a positive impact on both lives
of animals and humans. Plants are the basics for all food chains, not just the
industrial food chain. Plants create their own energy from the sun and are
known as producer, in the industrial food chain, farmer tend to massive crops
of land, often with only one crop grown through monoculture efficiency of the
field often is maximized through irrigation and use of fertilizers and
pesticides. Many of the farmers plant soy bean, wheat and corn, are used to feed
primary consumers, planting single crops can rob the soil of important nutrients.
Meat is one of the biggest and most controversial industries in America and an
important part of the industrial food chain. Fast food joints are notorious for
supplying farmed meat at low a low price, as well as other portions of the meal
infused with excess sugar derived from industrially-farmed crops.
