For years the outspoken environmental activist and writer Wendell Berry has merged his love for farming and his writing skills to create unique pieces on important topics. One of these unique pieces is “The Pleasures of Eating” that covers many issues on the relationship between people and food. My own relationship with food is extremely inconsistent because I feel strongly about eating healthy, but sometimes my busy life gets in the way of that. I find this article surprisingly relatable to my own situation and I believe many other people can relate to it as well. Wendell Berry may come as very blunt with his words, but I completely agree with his stance on advertisement and animal cruelty in the food industry and his approach to persuading people to make healthy lifestyle changes.
Growing plants yourself lets you know that you were in charge of growing those fruits or vegetables. Those won’t have additives, any harmful things put in them like chemicals, and ensures that they’re nice and healthy for you. Wendell Berry knows that not everyone can make a mini garden in their yard however, but she has other ways for people to help so they can have pleasure in eating food and be happy.

Schlosser mentions why people do not care much for healthy options, “Consumers savor the flavor while operators embrace [the] profit margin”(241). That is pretty much saying that the even if they do have a healthier option, it does not necessary mean that it is healthy at all. Another article from natural news mentions what obesity because of processed foods does to the body. The article says that although many people do not eat at any fast food restaurant they can still find processed foods in grocery markets, that
If we give them less, they’ll buy less, and the competitor will get our market. So you’re sort of trapped’ (Moss 267).

Food is not being prepared as often as was in the past and people are giving corporations their money by purchasing their processed food, which is why corporations are taking over.
