Food Food is the best thing ever invented. They’re many different types of food. Sometimes I see food and start dancing. Like last night for instance, I went over to my parent’s house and saw that my mother had cooked mustard greens. I lost my mind. Before I knew it, I had reached straight into the drawer and grabbed a fork. I snatched open the cabinet and equipped myself with the remaining materials I needed to get the job done. Unfortunately, the initial bowl of greens never made it out of the house. Due to the fact I’m greedy, I had to make myself another plate to take home. Then I started to think I should probably go home, because I know if my dad returns home and there aren’t any greens I will never hear the end of it. So I stayed a little longer just never returned to the kitchen. My mom came out of nowhere. “Are you ready to eat?” I replied, “With who me?” My mother says “Not you.” I already know you have been eating. I’m laughing at this point because she knows me like the back of her hand. I love when I hear my nephew say, “I don’t want any greens granny.” I think to myself, good, more for me. Now I just don’t eat everybody’s greens, and I’ll tell you why. Some people don’t like to season the food right, than I must start the whole doctoring process. If you don’t have the ingredients, I need to make a visit to the store, to get the right condiment. I would say I’m like this due to the fact I used to be camped outside in a tent for months eating nasty MRE’s. There are enough calories in a MRE to where you can eat one and you won’t be hungry for the rest of day. Now keep in mind it depends on which MRE we talking about. If it’s not tuna, chilli mac, or chicken breast, oh boy, you’re going to have the time of your life trying to devour that meal. One time I had a cracker out the MRE bag and almost died from choking on the dry cracker. There was some water out at the camp site, but it wasn’t purified for us to drink. So I used that water to wash up, which was useful, I guess. Luckily, my boy had some sugar water. If you don’t know what sugar water is, it’s a beverage used to just wash your food down with. So, on returning from the field, eating was a huge part of the plans I always had. I prefer a cooked meal over fast food but at that time either would do. There a couple of reasons why don’t care for fast food. Some employees don’t wear the proper equipment, while dealing with food. Seeing that I have been to many different countries, I have tried a little of every culture’s food that I have visited. I remember one morning sitting on a huge rock eating pita bread in Kuwait, thinking of when I would return home. There were times I wouldn’t eat anything. Learning to…
Genetically modified foods (GMOs) have been controversial in the United States since they
were first used in the 1990s (Byrne, Pendell and Graff 1). Much of their disputation has derived from
the negative connotations that are typically associated with genetically modified foods. Organisms that
are genetically engineered have been modified with genesplicing techniques that take a copy of a
beneficial gene from one organism and insert it into another organism. About 70% of the United…
internationalize is Whole Foods Market. This is an American company, founded by 4 men with previous experience in the grocery business. John Mackey and Renee Lawson worked at a grocery store called Safer Way Natural Foods, and Craig Weller and Mark Skiles worked at Clarksville Natural Grocery. These four men thought that it would be wise to combine their expertise and merge these companies and create Whole Foods Market in 1980. This was a wise decision, because Whole Foods has been growing and has…

Ethnic Food Report
My family really enjoys eating ethnic food, but my parents usually cook it instead of going to an actual restaurant. Choosing the restaurant I wanted to go to was difficult, but I decided on the Sahara Grille located on Dressler road in Canton. I had been told from a good friend that it was incredible food and he suggested it for writing my paper. I took his word and I am very happy I did because it was a great experience…
A NEW FIRM IN THE FAST FOOD INDUSTRY
This paper presents a proposed strategy (and a rationale for that strategy) for the establishment of a new fast food restaurant. The general strategy is to model the restaurant’s operational and marketing structure after those of the industry leader (McDonald’s), while at the same time introducing innovative food and service concepts which will obviate any necessity to directly compete with this virtually unassailable giant.

Small Indian Mongoose
The small indian mongoose, or Herpestes javanicus, is a species introduced by sugar planters in 1883, as they “imported the small Indian mongoose from Jamaica to four Hawaiian islands, Hawai‘i, O‘ahu, Maui, and Kaua‘I”, (Hays & Contant, 2007, p. 3) with the hopes this specie would aid in controlling invasive rat and snake populations within this ecosystem. This organism…

A severe controversy in today’s world is the manufacture and marketing of genetically modified foods. This is a special kind of food where the producer injects chemicals to benefit the convenience…
Response paper 4 personal food diary
By Shannon Phillips
After writing this down I was honestly quite embarrassed of my eating habits. I did not realize how much non healthy items I consumed. I mean I have thought about it before but it brings it to a whole new light when it’s written on paper. Maybe this will be enough of an eye opener for me to make some changes for me and my family.
