• Also before our class discussion, I was relating unprocessed foods with them being healthy. I didn’t really know that processed foods were a way of life. I sorta have/had this negative connotation when I thought […]

  • I loved how you pointed out processed foods are a part of life. I find this to be so true. As child, I looked for the most colorful packages, it really drew in my attention.

  • I consider processed foods anything that has been altered from its original state. (I will be drawing lots of examples from the reading) After reading the article I kind of classify processed foods differently. […]

  • I like how you played around the with the uses of “shouldn’t” and “can’t.” It was something that never dawned on me. Letting the two simmer for I bit, I started to think that maybe we should have been using […]

  • I love your example about the orange. Reflecting off of what someone said in class on Wednesday “we don’t eat peels because they don’t taste good.” Well, I believe that the idea of the peel “tasting bad” is […]

  • Have I ever really been hungry? No. A number of people (including myself) talk about hunger as if it’s some simple idea. When in reality it is. The problem with hunger is very intricate and deep-rooted.

  • I love how you tied this blog post to what we discuss and read for class, you made the perfect connection. I can say for myself, I opt for convenience, always. It’s just so much easier. but should cooking and […]

    I agree, food competition shows like Chopped, Master Chef, etc. do not say where the food comes from at all. They don’t really give any detailed information. Or nutritious facts. It’s pure entertainment.

  • I love how you touched on shortcuts, how everyone is trying to take them. I believe this is so true. Everything is about being quick and easy. But should our food always be quick and easy??? I say no.

    I love the questions that you have come up with. They are very deep and specific. Unfortunately, your manager does not have the answers. Which I think is incredibly important. Because what a customer wanted to know?!?!

    Cooking really has no rules. Utilize the ingredients and make your food pop. It’s such an enjoyable process. Cooking with loved ones can also be great. It’s fun to see what crazy concoctions can be made in the kitchen. And who is daring enough to try them.

    I really feel for you. Living in a dorm and being forced to have a meal plan, kinda sucks. But it is such a luxury. Last semester I consumed so much fried food. Really just try to explore your options. For lunch I usually eat Crutons or Bleakers. But by eating this so frequently, you kinda exhaust your options and get tired of the same thing.

  • I love how you touched on what’s the easiest to make. Now it’s all about convenience. What’s going to be the quickest way possible? Which is why we see a heavy reliance on fast-food. People want their meals at the […]

    I like how you touched on juice. A lot of people don’t usually realize how much sugar is contained inside of it. I 100% love water, it’s what I drink the most of. Every now and then I treat myself to a glass of soda.

    • I never knew that livestock and animal agriculture were the culprits for being unsustainable. Since that industry is so large and so many people rely on it, i really don’t see it backing down anytime soon.

    • I agree with your idea that we have become desensitized, we know exactly whats going on but it does not affect us enough to inspire a change.

    • I liked how you mentioned your relationship with your family and eating ‘soul food’. I also come from a southern family, and soul food was definitely on our plates almost every meal. Sounds like the documentary you watched might give you some insight on what is really going on behind the scenes.

    • I completely understand your struggle with not being able to stray away from your families bad eating habits. It’s kind of hard to control yourself when everyone around you is eating the same thing, and it’s just so much easier to eat what’s prepared in front of you instead of something else. Also, I agree that we have become desensitized to the way livestock are treated and handled. It’s just a hard habit to break, since most of us have been eating meat since we were children. It’s so bad that it’s normalized in our society now.

    • I love how honest this post is !! I also agree how important it is to make sure the future generations have what they need.

    • Hey. I can relate to grouping up in an African-American family and even half of my family is Jamaican. Although, like you said we eat a lot of fish and fresh vegetables and fruits…. We never really think about all of the other ingredients we use to make what we eat taste “normal” to us. Morally we never really think about that kind of stuff… Our first reaction is not to look at nutrition facts or thoroughly analyze what we are about to eat.

    • Your blog was very interesting, it really pulled me in and kept me interested in what you were saying. I agree with a lot of what you said. I do not have moral obligations about food either because I have not made any. I think it is true that we have become very desensitized to what we see, hear, and know about what goes on with the things we eat.

    • You make a good point about how culture impacts what we eat and how we don’t have ownership of Earth. I agree with your answer on eating depending on your mood. I have noticed that mainly females tend to agree with this statement whether its due to men not liking to show their emotional side. Over all I enjoyed reading your post

    • This blog was really interesting and relatable! The name drew me in and upon reading it, I found myself agreeing with you! Most of the time when we try to make changes in our diet, especially as kids, its hard because we simply don’t know how. So while I agree that we must change the way we produce food as a whole, maybe we should also move to educate ourselves and our own children on how to make these healthier and more moral changes to our diets!

    • I agree with you about the whole being financially sound is usually when someone can morally view food.
