Influences of Food Choices
By: Shelby Petty
In the beginning, no one, not even in today's world or tomorrow's, was fresh from the womb and new that if you cooked something it had better taste, nutrients, and less germs and illnesses. Later, by accident, a piece of food was cooked and then the lifestyle of cooking your food over a fire was born. So this concurred a huge every day task in their world and ours.
We not only eat to stay alive but to also relieve our hunger. When you eat, the calories in the food are dispersed throughout your body to keep you in tip top shape and have a high health status with a superior energy level. So yes, calories are a good thing if you don't consume a whole lot of them.
Personal Food Preference
So we all have that, I am so eating this, and ,I don't even want to look at this piece of food anymore, moments everywhere. This can be based off of taste, smell, color, association, and previous favorites. So if you really don't like tomato's then a BLT probably isn't your thing! This is because of previous taste. Now let's say you order some dumplings and they smell like heaven, you'll probably want to devour them at that very moment. This is because if you can associate something with a positive then you'll think of it like everything is good about it. Same the other way. Continuing on, if my vanilla ice-cream at the Wynn Buffet has a greenish tint, I am sending that thing back because my classic vanilla is snow white! This is because we eat with our eyes, and green on my list equals mold or they just tried to give me mint chocolate chip ice cream! So sadly you can decide a favorite and non-favorite over almost any life occurrence.
