Mrs. Rally, a lunch lady at a local elementary said “We serve six or seven cartons of chocolate for each one of white milk at lunch.” So why would we get rid of chocolate milk if it is choosen 6 to 1 to white milk? But that’s not all kids love it, it recovers athletes after their workouts and is a better overall diet for kids. Although chocolate milk has a little more sugar than other types of milk, yet I believe that chocolate milk should stay in school!
The story “Big Boy” is about a man named David Sedaris on Easter Sunday, he decided to go to the bathroom and he discovered something interesting. He found out that someone had left poop in the bathroom, and David thought that is would be a kind gesture to flush the poop down, but it ended to be a war zone in the bathroom. David mind was going through a lot during that phase such as, when his ID took over his Superego and he wanted to throw the poop out the window but his Superego told him not to because of reasons, for instance “I seriously considered lifting this monster out of the toilet and tossing it out the window. It honestly crossed my mind, but John lived on the ground floor and a dozen people were seated at a picnic table ten feet
In Michael Pollan’s essay “Escape from the Western Diet,” he directly to Americans about the western diet and why he believes they need to escape from it. The reason Americans should escape the western diet is to avoid the harmful effects associated with it such as “western diseases” (Pollan, 420). To support his view on the issue, Pollan describes factors of the western diet that dictate what Americans believe they should eat. These factors include scientists with their theories of nutritionist, the food industry supporting the theories by making products, and the health industry making medication to support those same theories. Overall, Pollan feels that in order to escape this diet, people need to get the idea of it out of their heads. In turn, he provides his own rules for escaping the western diet as well as the idea of nutritionist set forth by scientists.
For many years now, chocolate milk has been supplied in schools. But now, schools are debating on whether chocolate milk should be provided in schools or not. I strongly believe that chocolate milk should be offered at schools. Chocolate milk is healthy, a great recovery drink, and tasty.
If children are not underweight, semi-skimmed milk and low-fat products should be offered but not more than 350 ml a
You are going to the cafeteria to buy lunch. You are starving and pick up a tray to get food. The first thing you see are chicken nuggets, then you remember you can’t eat chicken nuggets because you are allergic to gluten. So you get some mashed potatoes and fruit instead. You want to get dessert but the brownies have peanuts in them and you’re allergic to peanuts too. When you want a drink, the only drink available is milk, but you are lactose intolerant. You go to pay, with only a little bit of mashed potatoes and fruit on your tray. Schools do not have enough lunch options for kids with allergies. 1 in 13 kids is affected from a food allergy and 40% of these kids have life threatening reactions. This is why I believe schools should make
TBHQ is found in microscopic amounts in food products because it is extremely toxic and it only takes 5 grams of TBHQ to kill a human being. Food should die, and not have a shelf live of years. The American people are eating foods that are so processed, that they don’t even rot! The American food industry is also wrongly educating people on the food we eat. The “MyPlate” program promotes the unhealthy American diet. MyPlate teaches us to eat nearly the same amount of vegetables as grains. MyPlate teaches us that milk has nutritional benefits. MyPlate teaches us to eat meat for protein. The whole got milk thing is wrong, humans were not designed to drink milk. Cow milk is meant for calves, not for humans. Cow milk can actually cause health problems like asthma. I know you are all asking yourself “How does she expect us to get calcium?”. As a matter of fact, leafy green vegetables have more calcium in them than milk does. Meat. Eating meat is not terrible, as long as the animal was free range. Eating farmed meat can actually lead to health problems because the animals are plump filled with hormones. Chickens are as big as cattle. Unfortunately, I am not really
Milk is refreshing, muscle building, and nutritious. “Got milk?” uses this advertisement to get this point across. It consists of Taylor Swift, whose portrait is in the center of the ad, flirtingly leaning on her dark red guitar lined with a light tan rim. Her smooth pale face is slightly tilted to the right as she is seductively gazing into the camera with her starry brown eyes. She has a gentle, small, pearly white smile, which is adorned with the white stain of milk. She is wearing large hoop earrings, one of which is covered by her slight hand, leaning on her graceful neck, and a silk bracelet. Both are jewel studded and colored light brown to compliment her blondish tan spaghetti strap dress that matches her flowing slightly curly golden
A man by the name of Anthony Bourdain is a world renowned chef from New York, who is the host and spokesperson for an Emmy Award-winning television series called Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. He travels the world exploring different countries and cities, in search of discovering new cultures, different lifestyles, and of course the food these places bring. Traveling to places such as Morocco, Cuba, and Jerusalem, Anthony dives right into the culture and politics of each country while being served the incredible and uncanny foods of the world. The true identity of the series is to use food as a gateway to show how astonishing and breathtaking the world truly is. Out of all the episodes in the extravagant eight seasons, I chose to watch the episode titled Jerusalem. Anthony puts the diverse country of Israel, specifically Jerusalem into perspective for the people who are unfamiliar with the culture and political situation that has evolved in the city for decades if not centuries.
Humanity needs to change before all information is censored. In “College at Risk,” Andrew Delbanco discusses liberal learning and the “whole person” that may not be developed in college due to a lack of income. Liberal learning develops the “whole person” by teaching the basic ethics and morals a person should have. Anne Applebaum presents examples of censorship in her essay, “The Decline of American Press Freedom.” She uses China and Yale to make the point that differing forms of censorship are doing more harm than good. In the formal essay “Making it in America,” Adam Davidson brings up what other people tend to ignore. He discusses the injustice the low income factory workers are receiving, even though productivity has grown. Humanity
