One Saturday morning, I woke up at seven in the morning to go to an amusement park called Six Flags. The plans had been made days ago, my two older sisters, my brother, a friend of ours and I would be going to Six Flags and spend the entire day there. As I got up after finally getting my alarm to finally shut up I walked over to the bathroom to take a shower when I realized that the ground was spinning, in my eyes at least, I had a vile taste in the back of my throat. I quickly fell back onto my bed feeling like if I hadn’t I would have fallen to the floor instead.
Customers are craving to try one-of-a-kind food from a special restaurant, located in the beautiful town of Boca Raton. There is an extravagant Southern California, motif vibe with wood and brick interior and gas lanterns hanging from the ceiling. There is a lit vivid candle on the table while sitting on the luscious red leather booths. Waiters are wearing white collard shirts with black pants, a tie, and fancy steakhouse aprons. This restaurant might be packed with hungry people, but the conversation of many crowds can still be heard. Houston’s spinach and artichoke dip, French dip au jus, and key lime pie are perfect for family dinners or just for special occasions.
“Food Inc.” is a documentary which uncovered the truth about food industries in America. Contrary to the images they are showing to the public, animals like cows and chickens are no longer raised on the field but in unsanitary and infectious houses. Cows are forced to eat corns instead of grass, which caused them E. coli, and instead of abandoning this new technology companies just use more chemicals to erase virus out of meat. Farmers and workers are forced to work underpaid and not allowed to talk about the companies’ policies. Slaughterhouses are getting bigger and bigger, thus it is easier for virus and bacteria to pass from one animal to the other through the hand of the workers. FDA and other government agencies do not address the issues because many of the heads of these agencies and other Congress members have ties with food companies. Therefore, the government subsidies unhealthy food while leaves vegetable’s price go off the roof, making it impossible for poor families to eat healthily. Moreover, it is illegal in some states to criticize food corporations, as Oprah Winfrey was sued for criticizing
Ancient Roman food is diverse and simple yet delicious. Panis Quadratis and moretum are the most well known foods from Rome. Panis Quadratis is a Roman version of bread. The bread was named Panis Quadratis because of the four “cuts” made before baking that created eight equal sized portions in the bread. This recipe is well known because of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii on August 4, 79 AD. Moretum, on the other hand, is latin for salad, but is more of a cheese, garlic, and herb pesto and is eaten spread on slices of bread. It might have also been named moretum because the ingredients were crushed together with a mortar and pestle. (Wilson-Okamura “Moretum”)
An aroma of Tim Hortons flew my way as I opened the cardboard box filled with delightful sweets. I gazed at a set of 12 Boston cream perfectly glazed donuts with rich creamy chocolate. All covered so evenly that it was astonishingly satisfying. Each donut was the same size, and was covered perfectly. Coated from every edge of the sweet ring-shaped fried cake. I picked up one of them to feel a warm but kind of rough, freshly baked decadent donut in my hands.
There has been a very large controversy on Aspartame and how bad it is for people. Aspartame is an artificial sweetener used all around the world for many food products. Aspartame can be found in diet soda, gum, yogurt, and sugarless candy. This artificial sweetener has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration(FDA) and the The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). A controversial claim I found online about Aspartame is it is: “By far the most dangerous substance added to food today”. Dr. Joseph Mercola was the man who said this controversial claim. I chose to write on this subject because aspartame is a sweetener seen often in my home. My family often purchases diet sodas, and I was curious to know how unhealthy it is for someone because of controversial claims I see on the Internet. It is believed that aspartame can lead to cancer and deadly diseases. In this essay, I will demonstrate why aspartame is not as unhealthy as what people say it is.

The cultural norms of Italy are quite different than that of Canada, and should be respected to avoid offending anyone. The official language of Italy is Italian, which is a language with a strong differentiation between formal and informal addresses. When talking to strangers and elderly people, formal language should be used unless they initiate the informal tone.

The issue has arrived concerning the definition of “junk” food and whether or not the government should be able to control it. The committee seeks to prevent the nation from falling into this trap of confusion. The topic of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP has been a recent issue and we as a committee seek to address it. The major question is, Should the government be able to control what people buy or do not buy with food stamps?
