The main thing that crossed my mind when I was looking at the ingredients used in my chicken was the fact that the meat was processed. But other than that the ingredients that were used were all natural. Two of the ingredients that oregano leaves and the spice leaves were grown in my back yard. The other ingredients like sazon and adobo are natural spanish spices with other spices combined in them. The chicken wings because they were brought in the store the same day my dad bought them. The one thing I can say about my dish is that no one makes it like we do. We don't use oil because that's grease and its unhealthy for you because you have issues and weight gain if you eat to much of it. This specific form of chicken wings does not impact the health. Not everyone can grow the products which is what makes ours natural baked chicken wings. Its 200 calories in this dish.

This unit I have learned how to stay healthy and what to eat and what not to eat. Before this unit I never thought about what I ate or what was in what I ate. The main thing that I learned this unit was the about the diseases and the causes of death, it caught my attention quickly. Before this unit I never thought about what "Is this good for me?", "Does this food have something that it shouldn't have?". I just ate whatever I liked because it was good and put a smile on my face and satisfaction to my stomach.
After learning all this stuff about the food industry I will no longer just eat whatever. I will pay attention to every detail. My role in the food industry is slim, I don't personally think that one person affects the food system because it full of careless people who don't care about anything but making money. I think the biggest issue with the food system today is their carelessness, they don't let the consumer know what is actually going on, for example McDonalds. If people were to actually know what they were eating 9 times out of 10 no one would eat there anymore. Some of the main changes I plan on making to Mumford choices are asking questions and doing research, I don't plan on eating outside as much in fast food restaurants. Being the fact that I work at Popeyes makes a difference because I know what is in there and I know what they do to the food so I feel safe eating it. But other than that I plan on eating my food at home or somewhere that I don't have to doubt. The biggest impact of me changing my ways of food choices is me getting healthy and staying healthy. My main concern is getting a disease such as diabetes or something of that sort, so I am more than willing to make these changes. No doubt!
