decided to make Zucchini Bread, which is a sweet-tasting desert-type dish, that
I always remember my mom making frequently when I was a little kid. This recipe
contains the typical ingredients that you would find in a regular cake such as
sugar, eggs, baking soda, vanilla extract, flour, etc. However, the unique part
about this recipe is that it contains a vegetable, which is not very common to
find in a cake. This recipe is a delicious treat to have every once in a while,
and something that is healthier to eat than regular cake, but if you were to
eat this every day, you would be consuming a pretty big amount of sugar, which
could cause you to develop diabetes after a while. The ingredients that were
used in this recipe were both commercially grown and organically grown, which
means this recipe has both positive and negative effects on the environment.
This because the organic ingredients within this recipe are grown and produced
using no chemicals such as fertilizer, pesticides, fossil fuel and much more,
however, the commercially grown food is grown using many different chemicals
that harm the environment in countless ways.
All of the ingredients in this recipe came from ACME, which is a company
that sells both natural and organic food brands (consisting of ingredients that
are 70% – 95% organically grown) that come from all over the world. The
ingredients in my recipe that were 100% organic were the walnuts and the
zucchini. ACME, and the companies that are ACME’s food providers, as well as
the farmers that grew/produced the food are who made money off of this recipe.
unit, I learned a great deal of things about food, the food industry, what I
should and should not consider eating, and much more. All of the things of which
I have learned during this unit have really opened my eyes to the point that I
have even caught myself looking at the ingredients in some foods before I
decide if I am going to eat them or not.
entire unit, one thing that has really stuck out to me is the movie, Food Inc.,
and how selfish the large food companies (that have taken over the food
industry such as Perdue and Tyson) are. The only thing they care about is
making as much money as they possibly can in the fastest and cheapest way
possible; regardless of how unhealthy their ending “food” product is, as well
as how poorly they treat their livestock. These two things are truly shocking
and scary to me. The fact that when I go into the supermarket and buy a pound
of chicken breasts and not know what is actually in those “chicken breasts” is
something that really terrifies me.
A way to solve the problem we face which is large food companies taking
over the food industry is by buying and supporting local farmers and purchasing
more organic food from grocery stores. Not only will this help the fight
against these large food companies (that claim they produce “food”, but don’t),
but it will also benefit everyone’s health because we will be consuming REAL
food, that contains no unknown chemicals, food that is naturally grown, and
most importantly, food that is treated in a much more humane way.
