Food as a Leisure Activity

Conditions in the contemporary society have made it possible for people to change their perspective regarding some concepts and things as simple as food have come to represent a leisure activity. Individuals are no longer interested in eating with the purpose to satisfy this need, as many people presently regard cooking and eating as an art. Moreover, one needs to focus expansively on these concepts in order to harvest all the benefits associated with making and eating food. Food has reached a whole new level in first-world countries, considering that the financial condition that people in these countries have virtually enabled them to see food as being more than just a necessity. Numerous individuals are actively…… [Read More]

Three-Day Food Intake Nutritional Analysis Protein Carbohydrates

Three-Day Food Intake Nutritional Analysis

Protein, Carbohydrates, and Lipids

Generally, most of my meals contained an adequate source of protein, from poultry (chicken), red meat, and eggs. The primary sources of carbohydrates were bread and bagels, rice, beans, cereals, and fruit juices. All of the sources of protein from poultry, meat, and eggs provided complete protein. ice and beans alone provided incomplete vegetable protein by themselves but would have provided complete proteins had they been consumed together instead of separately as side dishes of different meals (inzler, 2004). Almost all of the main foods that I consumed contained excessive levels of lipids because the chicken was fried in oil, the meat was a flank steak with considerable intramuscular fat, and the eggs were cooked on an oil skillet and included all of the egg yokes.

I was surprised by how much fat I consumed because I always considered chicken and…… [Read More]

Vitamin C For Common Cold What Is

Words: 1164 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 82371923

Vitamin C for Common Cold

What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble ingredient that is essential for the health of human beings. It is essential for normal growth and development and it has consumed regularly. Since Vitamin C dissolves in water, the excess amounts leave the human body through urine and this means the body needs a constant supply of this vitamin everyday. The body cannot store vitamin C in any form.

One of the primary role of vitamin C is to repair the body cells and tissues and to prevent free radicals and toxins from getting accumulated in the body. It repairs wounds and makes them heal faster. The free radicals are known to play a role in cancer and heart diseases and good amount of vitamin C everyday helps to prevent any damage.

Care Provider Ms X Was a Pre-Diabetic

Words: 666 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 17321767

Care provider

Ms. X was a pre-diabetic woman with a young teenage daughter. I was asked to treat Ms. X to help her stabilize her blood sugar to reduce the likelihood that she would be dependent upon insulin in the near future. Given Ms. X's unstable lifestyle, I was concerned about her ability to manage an insulin injection schedule. Also, non-drug intervention is always favored as an initial treatment for type II diabetes.

Health promoter

When working with Ms. X, I stressed the positive aspects of improving her health. I pointed out how weight loss would lessen the burden on her joints and make life easier. I also stressed how small steps in eating more healthfully and taking moderate exercise would improve her health incrementally.

What Are the Real Benefits of Eating Chili Peppers

Words: 1184 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 66660599

Peppers in the Mexican Culture

Chili peppers are a member of the Capsicum food group; the principal pigment is chlorophylls a and b (chlorophylls are "a complex macrocyclic compounds with an extensive system of conjugated double bonds") (Roth, 2014). There are 27 different species of Capsicum. The hot taste comes from alkaloid chemicals (capsaicinoids -- capsaicin C18H27NO3).

On January 1, 1493, Christopher Columbus was exploring the north coast of what is today Haiti when he found a plant that he figured must be related to the black pepper. He wrote in his log: "This pepper that local Indians use as seasoning grows everywhere here and is more valuable than black pepper or melegueta pepper" (Roth, p. 1). Columbus brought chili peppers to Europe and they were widely dispersed into Asia.

Food History of French Cuisine

What is the geographical location of France and why would it have an affect on the French cuisine? (i.e., what is the weather condition in France and does that play an affect as to why they eat the foods they eat and what foods do they eat mostly?).

The geographic location of France makes it an ideal place for agriculture that can affect cuisine. Why? Because France's climate is mild, and the growing season is long. That means farmers can grow more food throughout the year, and that means that more fresh food is available for cooking and eating all year round. It doesn't often get too cold in France, and in the summer it can get quite warm, which helps food ripen and mature.

The countryside is also fairly level and has good soil, and that helps create a good growing situation, too.…… [Read More]

It provides a range of flavors and always features pristine, farm-fresh produce and artisan ingredients that remain consistent between Blue Hill in New York City and Blue Hill at Stone Barns.

WD50 helped introduce American palates to molecular gastronomy. It is a restaurant designed to stimulate the interests of people who think food can be fun. In my opinion, WD50's Michelin deserves a much higher rating for its food score because every new little dish is both a taste sensation and source of laughter and fun. It is definitely not recommended for strict traditionalists because every dish is presented to challenge your expectations, such as where a dish looks one way to the eyes but stimulates your taste buds much differently.

What is the geographical location of North America and why it would have an effect on the North America cuisine? (i.e., what is the weather condition in North America and does that play an affect as to why they eat the foods they eat and what foods do they eat mostly).

North America is a vast area that has many different geographical areas and so, they have an amazing affect on the food that North Americans eat. The long shorelines provide every kind of seafood from Alaskan king crab to Maine Lobster. The interior of North America is made up of prairie, both in the U.S. And Canada, and it is fertile, flat soil that is easily farmed. The area provides food to the entire world.

The garden was located at the back of the unit, and instead of watching television or aimlessly wandering the halls, I witnessed the residents spend hours tilling the soil, planting seeds, tending the young shoots, harvesting the fruits of their labor, and finally cooking and serving their creations. What can be more inspiring than knowing you can feed yourself and your friends? The change in their appearance was remarkable. Gardening and cooking was not just a hobby, it was a metaphor for their ability to regenerate themselves in mind and body.

My dream is to own my own restaurant, a place where all of the food on the menu is grown and raised on-premises.

The restaurant's soft industrial lighting makes the chrome gleam. A soft and expansive backdrop of blue gives the space a cool and slightly futuristic industrial like a hip loft in the future. Exposed brick walls are tinged in a blue sheen and the distressed wood chairs and tables have been stained steel gray and have marble table tops. In three weeks, Cisse Elhadji, the owner of Ponty Bistro in Midtown, will open his new restaurant La Terengea. Located at 144 West 139th St., the restaurant us nestled in between the Hudson and Harlem rivers a few blocks west of the City College of New York.

Treme

Explain your plan for dealing with risk by developing a contingency plan

The risk embedded within the overall market is that of uncertain macroeconomic factors and their overall implications on consumer confidence. Unemployment remains stubbornly high at 7.7%. Unemployment has never seen these levels since the great depression (Beaudreau, 1996). Median incomes in the United States have fallen from $51,000 prior to 2008 to a now more modest $48,000 (DeNavas, 2012). During this period however, commodity prices have increased. The prices of gas, food, utilities, and rent have all increased over the past 5 years. This puts a strain on consumer confidence and consumer spending. This affects Treme as the restaurant relies on the discretionary income of individual customers to generate profit. As such a contingency plan is warranted in the event of adverse economic circumstances. The main sources of risk for the company will be changing consumer sentiments,…… [Read More]

Thomas Keller: Innovating the Classics

Any restaurateur will tell you that earning a star from Michelin, the definitive organization for recognizing quality in restaurants, is no easy task. Some chefs and owners work for decades to achieve one star for one restaurant. Yet Thomas Keller, the California chef responsible for some of the most celebrated restaurants in the country, was able to garner a three-star Michelin rating for two of his establishments in a two-year period. Not only was Keller able to impress the Michelin organization with the quality of food and service at his restaurants, he was also able to parlay his love and knowledge of food into a national culinary identity through several cookbooks, television appearances, media interviews, and even film consulting. While he may now fit the definition of a "celebrity chef," Keller remains entirely committed to the act of cooking…… [Read More]

Food is a basic requirement in an individual's life, and most of the human activities are means of ensuring that there is food security for the entire society. Food varieties vary from one community to another, and various dishes are known to be served during certain occasions. Basically, in events planning, one of the weighty considerations made, is the type of food to be served during the occasion. Food is considered to be one of factors that are used to bring people together in families and in society (Berg 8).

Most families have set aside a particular time of the day or evening when they all gather for family meals. Some families find it difficult to gather around daily for family meals due to non-flexible daily schedules. Extended families organize occasional gathering for instance once a year with a solemn aim of having a meal together. On…… [Read More]

71). Because of this, with few exceptions, the Japanese eat nearly everything with chopsticks. Many Japanese do not want to eat sandwiches with their hands, and in Japan, sandwiches are cut into small pieces and served with toothpicks (Grew, p. 266). Chopsticks play an important role from a child's earliest days in Japan to teach the importance of not eating with the hands. Around 100 days after its birth, a small ceremony is held where the child is introduced to solid food. Soft food suitable for a small baby is prepared and placed in front of the child. The mother uses never-before-used chopsticks to give the baby morsels of the solid food (endry, p. 36).

But while the Japanese culture was using chopsticks as part of a cultural interest in cleanliness, in China, chopsticks became a symbol of their cultural value on belonging to a group rather than standing out…… [Read More]

African estaurant evival

New York is home to people from all over the world, and it is well-known that they often bring with them cuisine from their homelands. Foodies descend on food courts in subterranean malls in Queens, ussian bakeries in Brooklyn, and ethnic food trucks pretty much anywhere throughout the five boroughs. For being a cosmopolitan city with such cosmopolitan tastes, surprisingly little attention is paid to the diversity of African food. The continent of Africa is rich in food tradition and, increasingly, we are seeing these traditions manifest throughout New York. This trend is occurring in many places, in particular Manhattan and Brooklyn. In fact, several openings over the past few years have dramatically altered the African dining scene, and this development is very much worthy of coverage. This citywide exposure to the African food trend makes it an excellent topic heading into the summer eating season.

This dance was very powerful as it did scare the European people. They did not fully understand the reason behind the dance and the religion, but they were very clear as to what the apocalypse was and they wondered if the Indians were somehow summoning the end of the world. Not soon after this Ghost dance caused such a commotion, an Indian by the name of Handsome Lake who was a leader for the Seneca tribe brought a new message to the Iroquois people. His message was to end the drinking. The Iroquois people had began to drink a lot of alcohol that was often offered to them from the European people during the fur trade. Handsome Lake believed that many of the problems that the Iroquois people faced was related to the alcohol.

The obesity crisis is, I believe, even more important than problems surrounding food safety-borne epidemics. Despite the recent attention given to obesity in the popular media, obesity is in some ways more difficult to treat than food safety issues. People's consciousness may be raised by a fear if becoming sick through food poisoning and throw out the offending, recalled products on their shelves if they contain salmonella or e.coli, but they seem less willing and/or able to change food habits that have been ingrained within them since childhood.

The diabetes epidemic, along with other illnesses related to obesity (like heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and osteoarthritis) will increase unless more active preventative healthcare measures are undertaken on a wide scale. Limiting the number of fast food restaurants that can be present in a specific area and near schools, along with promoting the spread of grocery stores and farmer's…… [Read More]

Changing lifestyles is a vital aspect of making the community healthier -- as well as the world. Sanitary and healthy cooking conditions are, of course, extremely important to observe and to know about, on an individual basis. Increasing the ease of reporting suspected unsafe conditions is also vitally important. But the relative safety of day-in, day-out food choices -- food choices that are often taken for granted -- also cannot be dismissed.

It is also important to note that the Chinese medical theory is closely linked to their ways of thinking or philosophy. This includes the theory of complementary opposites such Yin-yang, the Five Elements, the human body Meridian system and others.

One of the things I pride myself on is my ability to grill. hether it is steak, fish, ribs, or whatever else, I feel that I am an experienced griller and that my abilities are top-notch. hen grilling food, I never use propane gas but always use Kingsford charcoal. I find that this particular charcoal is long lasting, provides an aromatic smoke which translates into a savory, smokey flavor in the food. I start off by lighting the grill, using lighter fluid to soak the charcoal until I can smell that it has been saturated. Then I light the charcoal and stand back, allowing it to burn. For this essay I will describe in detail how I like to grill hamburgers, using as many sensory descriptions as possible.

First off I always like to have fresh ground beef and can always tell by the color of the meat.…… [Read More]

Curry Crisis A Madhu's Business Is Not

Words: 599 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 10385936

Curry Crisis

a) Madhu's business is not highly globalized. He produces and sells in the UK. However, one of his major inputs is chefs, and the ones with the skills he needs are not typically found in the UK. Indian chefs almost always come from India or from expat Indian communities elsewhere. This element of his business is globalized, because Indian cooking is a specialized skill that originates from a specific geography, and is not readily found either in the UK or in other parts of the world.

b) The four drivers of globalization are cost, market, government and competition. In the case of Madhu, the most important are market and competition. Cost is not a major factor. Madhu does not appear to have an issue with the cost of Indian chefs in Britain. There is no indication in the case that he is unwilling to pay a higher price…… [Read More]

Patient Mrs Gulcin Ozdemir Primary

Words: 678 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 67648867

It should be noted that Mrs. Ozdemir's problems are not entirely physical in nature. Her loneliness and isolation in a country in which she has limited command over English have caused her to pour her energies into cooking traditional, heavy meals for her family and using overeating as a coping mechanism.

Seeing a counselor who speaks her language and can aid her in talking about her cultural adjustment issues seems essential. Without psychological support, it is unlikely that Mrs. Ozdemir will feel sufficiently motivated to change her lifestyle. Ideally, diabetes education at the secondary level should also be culturally sensitive, and provide dietary and exercise-related suggestions. Proposed menus can reflect Mrs. Ozdemir's culture, such as Mediterranean dishes that emphasize vegetables and beans, rather than sugary sauces and meats. Also, walking rather than taking public transportation is a potential source of exercise. Ozdemir should receive regular lipid screening, and, if warranted,…… [Read More]

Blackwater the Private Contractor Dilemma

Words: 3059 Length: 9 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 67030567

Vermont's Junior Senator, Bernard Sanders introduced to the Senate the Stop Outsourcing Security Act S. 2398. The Stop Outsourcing Security Act will help solve the lack of oversight of contractors in Iraq by requiring that by June 2008, "the President shall submit to each specified congressional committee a report on the status of planning for the transition away from the use of private contractors for mission critical or emergency essential functions by January 1, 2009, in all conflict zones in which Congress has authorized the use of force" (s 2398). This bill will examine contractor activities and ensure that renewals will only happen if the president certifies that contractors have undergone background checks and are clear of any crimes that could lead to additional problems with their work in the future. It will also allow congress to have access to information of private military companies including, the number of persons…… [Read More]

Growth Hormones in Our Food

Words: 2875 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 95346274



More objectivity is however expected from scientists, but their opinions also vary. Specifically, the opinions of those who support growth hormones and those who reject them are all derived from scientific evidence. This in turn means that the results of scientific research could be manipulated and influenced so that the findings are indicative of the desires of those who initiated the study. In this particular sense, the most pertinent situation is revealed by the beef and dairy producers, who hire their own scientists to lead the research process in the direction desired by them.

Aside from these situations however, the scientists who have conducted studies tend to link various health problems with the growth hormones. Some of the side effects to consuming products with residual matters from growth hormones include the onset of early puberty in girls, an increase in the risk of breast cancer, an increase in the risk…… [Read More]

applying to the Making + Meaning summer program is to enhance my understanding of, and ability to create, interesting, thought-provoking, and purpose-driven design. To that end, I am particularly interested in learning more about the tenets of earth sheltering and its practical applications in our modern world.

While in many respects we have become divorced from the sustainable design practices of the earliest humans, earth sheltering remains a viable means of situating a home or other building in its environment. Earth sheltering is a means of leveraging a building's natural surroundings in order to provide insulation. Typically constructed on a hillside, an earth-sheltered home uses earth and soil to insulate a home or building. Given that below the frost line the temperature is remarkably stable, such a "soil wrap" reduces temperature fluctuations in the building's internal temperature, providing a stable environment conducive to human living.

Biodiesel Business Plan Executive Summary

Historically one retailer in the area has offered 100 gallon drums of 100 to consumers for purchase, but has recently restricted sales to 500 gallons per purchase, no doubt to serve industry. While another retail location has spotty supplies that must be called upon, on a weekly basis to determine if 100 is even available, though conveniently they do sell it by the gallon.

One of the most essential aspects of beginning to build a biofuel infrastructure on a local level in a domestic city is to create such an infrastructure that would curtail the dominance of foreign biofuel in the region.

The price charged for the company's biodiesel product lines will be tied to the prevailing prices charged for feed stock and production costs, but any costs in excess of traditional diesel fuel alternatives will be offset by marketing initiatives designed to promote the environmentally responsible aspects of the products' use, as well as the patriotic aspects of reducing America's reliance on foreign oil.

Distribution (Place). Transportation for the company's product line will be outsourced.

Promotion. As noted above, biodiesel products possess a number of characteristics that can be promoted to different industries and organizations depending on their specific needs. Larger enterprises such as Universal Studios Theme Park could be encouraged to use biodiesel alternatives based on the tax advantages and public relations opportunities such use affords; likewise, governmental agencies could reap economies of scale by converting large vehicle fleets to biodiesel applications and also enjoy the P benefits that accrue…… [Read More]

The fact that a novel in the sentimental and seduction genre attained such heights of popularity is, in the first instance, evidence its impact and effect on the psyche and minds of the female readers of the novel. As one critic cogently notes:

hy a book which barely climbs above the lower limits of literacy, and which handles, without psychological acuteness or dramatic power, a handful of stereotyped characters in a situation already hopelessly banal by 1790, should have had more than two hundred editions and have survived among certain readers for a hundred and fifty years is a question that cannot be ignored.

This article investigates whether adolescents perceived that they ate more healthily when eating home-cooked meals with their family than otherwise. Twenty one focus groups conducted with 141 adolescents from 7th and 10th grade health education classes from urban public junior and senior high schools in Minnesota revealed that most of the adolescents thought that they would eat more healthy food by family meals and if they ate more often with their families despite not all of them liking the foods that were served.

The conclusions that we may arrive at from this article are that, regardless of age and population type, home-cooked meals are generally ranked as more satisfying.

Political Ecology of the World Food System

In the readings examined for this paper, the one central theme is the way politics affects how the environment is treated and how that treatment of the environment then correlates to the food and clean water supply of people all over the world. Nitrogen in fertilizer is one of the big problems, because it does more than just get into the crops which it is designed to assist. Fertilizer, according to Little (2009), is "yet another by-product of fossil fuels" (p. 148). Those fossils fuels are affecting the environment in a very negative way, but fertilizer is important to the growth of crops that people need in order to have enough to eat. It becomes a conundrum when there is a "bad" product that many people do not want used, but that product is basically required to create what is needed to sustain…… [Read More]

Throughout my studies in psychology, I find the classes and topics on emotion and motivation interesting and educative. This is because the class touched a lot on the issues that made me understand myself better than I did before the topic was introduced. The class aided my understanding on the aspect of sexual orientation, especially homosexuality. This is due to the information that was present on the materials offered in class. There was adequacy of explanation on the issue of motivation and emotion in relation to human psychology (Weiten, 2011). The topic on motivation and emotion touched on various issues, for example, the significance of groups, power plus obedience, and the perception about us and other people.

Is Ahimsa workable?

The author on the one hand says that the Jains are ideal in respecting the sacredness of life but one the other hand they are too impractical. Even Gandhi himself claimed to follow ahimas yet he had to allow use of DDT to kill mosquitoes. Thus, the idea of ahimas is impractical for protecting lower species because they often kill too many people. Thus the workability of an idea depends on the balance. If the idea of behaving positively to members of species means to respect their light to live than every specie should be allowed to live without harming the other and the one harming the other. And the answer given by the Jainism to author's question is not perfect.

evolution of human and food

Words: 684 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 88328494

Human biological, social, and cognitive evolution has depended on food. That much seems obvious, but what is less obvious is the specific ways that first fire, and then agriculture, and then the combination of advanced cooking and food preservation methods have contributed to the quality of the human brain and the efficacy of the human body. Even at its most basic, cooking transforms the available nutrients in plants, and renders some otherwise inedible plants both edible/nonpoisonous or better able to provide bioavailable nutrients. Even just sticking plants and animal parts into a fire and waiting for a transformation to take place fueled human biological evolution because "cooking made available to our ancestors unprecedented nutrients that fueled brain growth over time, and reduced the need for energy-expensive chewing of tough foods," (King). Bioavailability increases from just 30 to 40% of nutrients in raw plants to a full hundred percent (Mott). Cooking…… [Read More]

America's Diet

The typical American diet is one high in sugars and processed foods. Accordingly, The United States has earned the unfortunate nickname of "Fast-food Nation." The initiation of the rapid growth in fast-food consumption rates in America is likely a result of this country's lack of a widely embraced and highly diverse national cuisine. The United States as a country is truly a melting pot for cultures, religions, ethnicities and beliefs. This vast assortment has certainly carried over into the world of food. That is, most Americans have easy access to a large array of different cuisines on a daily basis and this chronic presence of other cultural food choices has virtually destroyed any possibility of creating a truly American cuisine. Therefore, American citizens along with the rest of the world have transfixed fast-food into this national category.

The above authors were interested in understanding both the anti-nutritional and antioxidant activity of dried beans when consumed. The anti-nutritional components include enzyme inhibitors, lectins, phytates, cyanoglycosides, and polyphenols. The authors chose to focus on polyphenols because many of these compounds also exhibit antioxidant activity.

Prior research has shown uncooked beans have significant levels of polyphenols and antioxidants, but the effects of food processing on the concentration of these compounds had yet to be determined. The authors therefore assessed total phenol content and antioxidant activity after commercial-style processing of three different cultivars: Flor De Mayo M38, Bayo Victoria, and Pinto Villa.

aising standards and building codes makes fire prevention a priority and legal requirement that will save the government and community money and protect lives. Another critical recommendation by FEMA and the USFA is to ensure the health and safety of fire fighters. Fire departments are staffed with paid employees, and often volunteers. These individuals deserve adequate funding to invest in necessary training, equipment, and technology to make their jobs more efficient and protect their lives (Bernstein, 2002).

The fire problem in the U.S. spans across the decades and infects the entire nation. Today, in regards to both frequency and total losses of life, America has the highest total fire losses than any modern technological society, the fact of which can no longer be ignored. The tens of thousands of deaths and injuries and the billions of dollars in property losses each year to fires are a testament to the severity…… [Read More]

Potco and the New Slow Cooker

Market Position

Target Market

Marketing

Pricing

Placement

Promotion

PotCo have developed a brand new product; a slow cooker which uses a heat exchanger rather than a heating element. This creates a new version of an existing product which differs greatly from those already on the market; the running costs are much lower, which can create a significant advantage but the cooking time is extended as the heating method can take up to two hours to heat two litres of food. The product, which is envisaged as having a retail price of A$150, appears to have a great deal of potential but prior to launch there are a number of issues the company should consider. These include prelaunch considerations included production and distribution, determination of the positioning and target market, and setting up of the marketing strategy.…… [Read More]

What interventions have been successful and what interventions have NOT been successful?

It is clear that general nutrition education, in the schools or in the community has not been an effective intervention tool for children in general, especially given what some would consider the deplorable condition of the public school nutrition programs in most states. It is also clear that family focused interventions are rare, but where they have been tried they have proven most successful…… [Read More]

McDonald's Corporation

This is an attempt to study the history and development of one of the great institutions of United States and a part of the images of the country that has spread in the whole world. As is well-known, the dominance of the world by United States came after the Second World War when the traditional leaders of United Kingdom and Germany lost their predominant positions due to the destructions of the war, and the impact of change in economic order due to the freedom of many countries. This was the freedom of the colonies and United States had been one of the first colonies to be free, and the former colony became the leader, along with Russia which was the pathfinder of the failed social and economic structure of communism. It was a contest between the two to prove the relative superiority of the two systems, and the…… [Read More]

McDonald's keep thinking up good deals for their customers nowadays due to the drop in sales and reduction of margins that the company is facing, and one of that is to provide extra benefits to their customers, and this is often achieved by increasing the quantity served by just adding item quantities at a very low price.

Transformation of Different Cultures' Foods Into American Foods

Words: 2815 Length: 9 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 58196389

Americanization of Foods:

Food is traditionally considered as a simple means of subsistence but has developed to become filled with cultural, psychological, religious, and emotional significance. Consequently, food is currently used as a means of defining shared identities and symbolizes religious and group customs. In the early 17th and 18th centuries, this mere means of subsistence was considered as a class maker but developed to become a symbol of national identity in the 19th centuries. In the United States, food has been influenced by various cultures such as Native American, Latin America, and Asian cultures. Consequently, Americans have constantly Americanized the foods of different cultures to become American foods. The process on how Americans have Americanized different cultures' foods and reasons for the Americanization is an important topic of discussion.

Background Information:

As previously mentioned, food was traditionally considered as a mere means of subsistence, especially in the 17th and…… [Read More]

She used some commercial breadcrumbs and a bit of the commercial, grated cheese together and cooked the cutlets in a skillet. She served them with a salad. I realized that watching and listening to a 'real person' was actually a much better, as well as a more enjoyable way to learn how to cook than watching a television show. I could ask questions, and learn how to do things that the cooks on television assumed I already knew how to do -- and I could also 'taste' and touch the results, which is even more important with a how-to product like cooking.

My entire experiment made me wonder about the popularity of home-improvement television in general. I wonder how much really people get out of it, or if we have become so conditioned to looking to television for information, we don't realize that it is better to sometimes try to…… [Read More]

What Drives Parents to Consume Fast Food With Their Children

Parents and Fast Food

What Drives Adults to Consume Fast Food with Their Children: TV, Toys, and Time

Television advertisements play a role in deciding what we consume, and that marketing is geared toward children no less than it is toward adults. McDonald's fast-food chain, for instance, gears an entire production line called the Happy Meal to children, who -- lured by the toys and tiny meals that are packaged together -- drive their parents to eat with them there (Schlosser, 2001). This is one example of what drives parents to consume fast food with their children. The rationale for this study is to understand some of reasons why parents consume fast food with their children.

Karen Campbell (2006) states that "it is likely that a child's eating behaviours are learnt in early childhood and that the home environment exerts substantial influence on the development of these behaviours (Birch and…… [Read More]

Microwave Oven

Words: 664 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 99282117

Microwave Ovens -- Construction and Operation

Microwave ovens use a wide variety of electrical circuits and mechanical components to produce microwave energy for heating and cooking [3]. There are two primary sections within a microwave: the control section and the high-voltage section. The control section consists of a timer (electronic or electromechanical), a system to control the major power output, and diverse interlock and protection devices. The components in the high-voltage section serve to increase the voltage. Higher and higher voltages are then converted to microwave energy.

When plugged into an electrical circuit, electricity enters the microwave oven through a series of fuse and safety protection circuits. These circuits include various thermal protectors that can also deactivate the oven in the event of overheating or a short [2]. Under normal circumstances, electricity passes through to the interlock and timer circuits. When an oven door is closed, an electrical path is…… [Read More]
