Many people believe that having the best nutrition is the hardest thing to consume due to their lack of knowledge of purchasing the right types of foods. However, Muscle & Fitness Magazine’s Will Cockrell can introduce everyone to a guide to consume the healthiest foods. In his article “The Guy’s Guide to Shopping the Farmers’ Market,” he labels the nutrition on the best foods to consume on your body. The whole field guide is all about fruits and vegetables and what proper ingredients is healthy for you. Will Cockrell has pointed out that “Not only is honey a healthier sweetener for cereal, but many markets have single-serving honey sticks, a great pre-workout energy boost.”
Michael Pollan’s Escape from the Western Diet connects well with what Mary Maxfield says in her article. Both Pollan and Maxfield talk about the ways that dieting is taking over American people’s healths and causing them to become even unhealthier. In Mary Maxfield’s argument she talks about how people believe everything that diet industries say, even though they know that the information they give you is false. This connects really well with what Michael Pollan talks about in his article, which is that people know that these theories that are used for the Western diet are not accurate, but yet they still decide to use the Western diet to help them become healthier.
Everybody Talked Loudly In Chinatown vs. Simple Recipes In Anne Jews ‘Everyone Talked Loudly in Chinatown’ and in Madeleine Thien ‘Simple Recipes’ Lin and the girls’ brother have a lot of similarities and differences. Both characters try to overcome obstacles, in their search for fulfillment, but still remained entrapped due to their own and their parents' judgemental views and them wanting to find access to the dominant culture. Both Lin and the brother hurdle through obstacles to find access to the dominant culture.
Eating Healthy Michael Pollan, a health food spokesperson, made some interesting critiques on how he believes that there is an American paradox such as, “a notably unhealthy population preoccupied with… the idea of eating healthy” (Maxfield, 442). The idea taken from Michael Pollan’s quote is that he believes the definition of healthy eating has more to do with how it is “driven by a well-funded corporate machine” (Maxfield, 442). He is also claiming that the food industry is benefiting on our lack of knowledge on how to eat properly when it comes to being healthy. In her article Food as Thought: Resisting the Moralization of Eating, Mary Maxfield directly attacked Pollan’s claims, pointing out the hypocrisy in his words because he is sharing
In recent decade, the United States has seen supermarkets continuously get filled with packages labeled with things like “Low sodium” or “No Trans Fats.” Companies stick these labels on their food to match the current fads of what is good for you and what is not. In his essay Unhappy Meals, Michael Pollan advocates a return to natural and basic foods, and deplores nutritionism. Pollan argues that nutritionism does not actually tell people what is healthy or not, and that the only way to be sure you are eating healthy is to eat natural, fresh food.
Lost for words As a child, we tend to appreciate the time we spend with our family. They were our first bond and the example of a role model that we wanted to follow as we get older. Unfortunately, sometimes, as we age, some moments in our life can take a turn for the worst, which create childhood traumas. That’s when our perspective changes for a loved one. In “Simple recipes”, Madeleine Thien showcases how living in a loving family can change in an instant.
A Dinner Menu I currently was chosen for a huge task to take on. I will be preparing a huge dinner for a business meeting. Hardly anyone wants to be stuck with something like this, since the meal is usually the biggest part of a meeting. If the food does not taste good then no one is going to be happy and the meeting could end in a disaster. Having really bad luck with cooking, or the way it turned out could no longer be the problem.
Thus, it is not a surprise when it comes to the situation that real foods are fading away on the dinner tables. In response to this situation, Michael Pollan writes an essay titled “Unhappy Meals” to advise his readers to “Eat [real] food. Not too much. Mostly plants” (Pollan 1). This claim holds effectively in Pollan’s essay because
Today’s society is surfaced with various problems, one of them being our diet along with obesity. The health of our country’s people has become a national problem. One’s diet is based upon their choices, but even then there are many controversial views upon what is healthy and what is not. Two essays that I read uniquely present their views on this topic. First, there is “Food as Thought: Resisting the Moralization of Eating” by Mary Maxfield and then there is “Don’t Blame the Eater” by David Zinczenko.
Simple small steps like this can break the paradigm of bad eating habits, which will lead us to a healthier organic food industry. Being a persistent and responsible consumer is the power we hold for change if we really believe in moving towards a better
In Margaret Visser’s essay, “The Rituals of Fast Food”, she explains the reason why customers enjoy going to fast food restaurants and how it adapt to customer’s needs. Some examples of the most loyal fast-food customers are people seeking convenience, travelers, and people who are drug addicts. First, most loyal customers are people seeking convenience. The reason why fast food restaurants are convenient because longer hours of being open, the prices are good , etc. As Visser said in her essay, “Convenient, innocent simplicity is what the technology, the ruthless politics, and the elaborate organization serve to the customer” (131).
Men are unable to function in the extremely high pressure situations that women try to put them in, such as helping out in the kitchen or cleaning the house. In “Lost in the Kitchen” by Dave Barry, these incapabilities are highlighted and ridiculed by Barry in order to put a comedic spin on the situation. The use of different resources of language such as stereotypes, hyperboles, and comparisons all support the main point that men are subpar in the kitchen compared to their female compatriots. Throughout “Lost in the Kitchen”, Barry speaks of the kitchen as if it contains its own consciousness, a place where women are unparalleled and reign dominant over men. The kitchen seems to be described as a trap of sorts, and he states that he would not have a preference between landing a nuclear aircraft or going into that foreign domain.
