The decisions we make about food impact our relationships with others. Choosing to sit around a table and have a healthy meal is how Abdul and Nelson express their food identity.

Michael Chabon’s Manhood For Amateurs is a collection of short stories that Michael Chabon has derived from his own life. Each story is not only interesting, but each story is able to teach the reader something they didn 't know about them self. Reading the shirt story “Fever” I was inspired to write about one of my own experiences, this experience being the first time I ever had pizza in America. In my own personal story I tried to resemble the creative style that Chabon was able to write with, however, I was only able to do so much. The similarity between my essay and Chabon’s essay are that we both have a scene, I tried to resemble this aspect as it was the main focal point that inspired my essay.

Pollan explores the manipulations of labels and advertisements, claiming that their foods are “organic”. However, many people do not know the true meaning of the word “organic”. As decided by the Federal Government, organic foods can use certain synthetic ingredients in foods, but cannot use antibiotics, pesticides, or synthetic fertilizers. These rules were then bent and blurred, making it so that the common “organic” farm was not truly organic. For instance, when Pollan visited one of these organic farms, he was dismayed when he realized that despite the chickens having an outdoor area, it was so small that none of the chickens even bothered to venture outside their confines.
Over the years in America food and how it is consumed has changed, and we seem to actually be eating more unhealthy despite advances in modern science and technology. In Michael Pollan’s book, “In Defense of Food”, Pollan talks about this idea, and how food itself has been replaced by the nutrients in them. Today’s development of food science has done more harm than good, and the food industry has become industrialized. People have to avoid the new “Western diet” and need to go back to the natural way of eating healthy foods. When I arrived at college, I completely changed my diet for good after just a single week in, as I had a realization I needed to eat healthier to transform my relationship with not only food, but with my body and mind.
By asking these questions, Rohrig causes the reader to start thinking about the importance of food coloring in food and drinks. The reader has been persuaded to think that food coloring is an important attribute, the rhetorical questions caused the reader to picture the items that Rohrig asked about and probably concluded that they would not use/buy those items. Rohrig also used rhetorical questions when he asked “why go artificial?” and “Why bother with artificial, or synthetic, food coloring?”. Through asking these questions, the author causes the reader to think about the possible pros and cons of going artificial. This persuades the reader to think that artificial colors might be better than the other options, therefore, when Rohrig gives his reasons why artificial colors are important the reader is more likely to agree since the reader has probably already come to that conclusion.
