According to Trefis, a research company, organic and healthier food are gaining importance in the U.S. Consumers have become more health conscious and there is an increase in demand for natural and healthier food. Using its 'Food with Integrity' campaign, Chipotle has aggressively marketed itself as a restaurant using only naturally raised meat (“Chipotle Mexican Grill,” 2017).

I will be more focused on the other side of the border and express my findings about the Mexican culture in Mexico. According to woldatlas an online database, the majority of Mexicans live in cities like Mexico City with a population of 12 million Mexicans.

After much tribulation, she runs away with Idgie to open their own café, named the Whistle Stop Café, to raise her baby in a safe environment and get away from the abuse from her husband. The food that they prepare and serve at the café not only saves Ruth from the terrible suffering she had to go through, but also brings life into the small town that they live in.

Nursing home is part of long-term care. Green house homes are licenced as nursing homes or other high-service residential long term care programs which are established to provide services to patients with the greatest cognitive and health care needs and knowledge of home economics is greatly needed here. Because I work in a multicultural setting, I nurse patients from different nationalities having different culture, believe system and values.
