Why We Eat What We Eat
Economics: People buy what they can afford and it's much different economically when things are on sale a certain way or in certain amounts.
Environmental: It all depends on how much something grows somewhere. If it's a bad year for a certain fruit it may cost more in the stores since there isn't as much around that season.
Technological: If we are able to have crops that can grow quickly or are less likely to go bad they may sell it for less especially if they don't have to pay for shipping and other things like that.
HEALTHY FOOD CHOICES
Weight management: If people have to worry about they most likely won't eat lots of fattening foods which could be a very different diet than some other people who it may not matter to.
Physical activity needs: most people who work out eat lots of proteins because it's easier to get muscle but they most likely drink more water as well.
