    Before I read the article, I too was surprised to learn how many foods are processed and that just because a type of food is processed, it does not mean it holds the unhealthy stereotypes that we have given it. […]

  • I agree with your reasons on why you used the two different terms “can’t” and “shouldn’t”. What does this mean in the broad spectrum of food? I do not have any severe allergies or religious restrictions regarding […]

  • The word “food” is a very hard term to describe and I think this is because people have a different definition for it. People eat different things, that is why there are so many food options for humans. Going off […]

    I agree, we should all try and eat healthily but it is also a problem that people can not get the healthy food that they need. Many people are hungry and have low food insecurity, however, they may not turn to […]

    I liked that you laid out the different definitions of the words hunger and hungry. I agree with you that the removal of the word hunger is too hard to compare and to define and thus we should leave it the way it […]

    I love the show Chopped! (it’s my favorite cooking show!) I too wrote about Chopped for my blog this week. I agree with you when you say that you like when the judges explain some of the foreign ingredients […]

  • To add a comment on your final paragraph, commercials and advertisements often do not even use real food to show on television. It is often a wax or even something plastic. This fact is disgusting to me. I agree […]

    I liked how you shared your personal experience about working at Panera. Many chain restaurants advertise how healthy and fresh their ingredient are but as you explained earlier that is not the case. You spoke […]

    Overall, I think your post is awesome. I also have large dinner affairs with my family and I liked to here about your experiences with your family about food. Throughout your blog post, it seems that you really know what you’re talking about food and nutrition wise! Also, I really enjoyed that you included a picture of the tacos that you made!…[Read more]

    I am also a freshman here and I think it is incredibly hard to find healthy, organic things to eat here. The Walmart on campus absolutely does not offer fresh options, like you stated above, and I 100% agree that […]

    In my blog post I wrote that I did see a connection between food and morals but after reading your post, it was good to get another perspective. I think that that is such a good thing that you don’t view eating any type of food a bad thing, more people (including me) should start thinking this way. I liked that you included the part about yes we…[Read more]

    I liked your post a lot. I liked how you included your family aspect because I think people can relate to that a lot. My mom always cooked dinner every night and it was an hour affair to sit down with the family and eat every night. I 100% agree with you that it is hard to diet or even eat healthy here at college.

    • Mary jane1,

      Thanks for the awesome blog post. A few things really stood out to me that I enjoyed. I loved how you shared your abroad cuisine experience of Spain. It’s amazing how much different American food treats our bodies. I think it’s really cool your mother implemented a healthy diet with no preservatives. Also, I absolutely loved how you said it can be a moral obligation to indulge. I completely agree with this (I type as I am enjoying an espresso brownie!)

    • I definitely agree with the way you were talking about society’s food fads. It seems like most people nowadays are more worried about their caloric intake, rather than any nutritional benefit. People need to start realizing that it’s not about the numbers, it’s about where the food came from, and how it will help our bodies.

    I think that is so cool how you went to Costa Rica! It is incredible and also important that you left your own community to go and help another, more people should do that and I would also like to have experiences like that. I agree with what you said above about how, “forcing someone to do community service can put a bad taste in one’s mouth.” I…[Read more]
