Eating Favorite Food

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

What does food mean to you? What is your favorite food? Do you make it a point to eat healthy food? How important is it for you to eat healthy food? Do you know what makes a balanced and healthy diet? As they say, not all foods are created equal. There are junk foods, fast foods, and there are healthy foods. With the various choices around us, we should be wise in choosing the right food that would really be beneficial for our bodies. Each decision we make affects our health. But how do we make wise food choices? What are the factors that influence one’s decisions on food consumption? What benefits does one stand to gain in eating a healthy and balanced diet? The purpose of this paper is to analyze the factors behind food consumption and to inform about the benefits of healthy eating in the hope of enlightening others in making wise food choices for their good health and well-being. Poor diet and an unhealthy lifestyle can increase the risk of diseases whereas proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle can improve one’s overall development. The findings of this research can help individuals, families, communities, and the government in implementing good nutritional eating behaviors among the public as we look towards the improvement of people’s health and well-being.

Making wise food choices begins with an understanding of food and diet. Food is one of the most basic needs of man to survive and maintain optimal health through his lifetime. Our body needs food to maintain, nourish, and develop its functions. But the kind of food that we eat affects the efficiency of our bodily functions. This means that we cannot just eat whatever we want, whatever is edible, or whenever we want to eat. There has to be a balanced healthy diet for the body to run smoothly. So, watch your diet because you are what you eat.

Happy Family

OUR ADVOCACY

The family is the most basic unit of our society. It is where individuals receive nurturing and nourishment that make them healthy individuals and productive citizens of our country. It is the government’s responsibility to ensure the welfare of its families especially at times when the families could not afford to meet the fundamental needs of its members. We cannot deny that poverty exists even in a progressive nation such as America. According to the 2015 Official Poverty Report, poverty in the United States stands at 13.5% (U.S. Census Bureau, 2016). This translates to 43.1 million people living below $24,036 per annum for households with two adults and two children. Knowing these figures allows the government to design programs that would meet the needs of low-income families. One such program is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP. When families have a low income, it is difficult to make ends meet. They cannot provide for their members’ basic needs such as food. SNAP hopes to address this issue by allowing these families to buy nutritious food so that they can be healthy.

MexiQ NY supports the government’s SNAP initiative in providing low-income families with nutritious food. Beneficiaries of the program can use their food stamps in our restaurant and we have prepared food packs that contain all the individual nutritional daily requirements for each member of their family. In that way, we can be sure that the food that they eat is not just delicious but most of all, it is nutritious too. MexiQ NY is proud to be a part of this program and we are honored to serve our community members. It is our way of giving back to the people. We want to help make America great by feeding the nation with nutritious food one family at a time.

barbeque party

OF BBQs AND GOOD TIMES

I do not know about you but BBQs always remind me of the good times. Always. I remember Sunday lunch with family, picnic with friends, or vacation at the beach. The smell of the BBQ alone is enough to transport me back to those times when everything was perfect and happy. It reminds of the delightful moments shared with family and friends.
One special memory I have that involves BBQs is that of my grandmother. My grandmother had her own special marinade for our BBQ and it was everyone’s favorite. It made us look forward to Sunday lunch with the whole family. My uncles would be in charge of grilling the meat while my aunts would help my grandmother prepare the other dishes that we would all eat together. I can say that through her cooking and special BBQ sauce, our family became closer.
Another good memory that comes to mind when I think of BBQs is those moments spent at the park near the lake where we would have a picnic with friends, throw some Frisbee, and just relax at the grass. Those were lazy and leisurely afternoons when we did not care what tomorrow would bring. All that mattered was that moment – we were all happy to be together, laughing the afternoon away.

For me, BBQs and the beach go together. This is the perfect food when spending the day at the beach. As I said, the smell of the BBQ alone can bring me back to that relaxing place. It is as if I can almost hear the gentle sound of the waves as they reach the shore. I can feel the gentle rays of the sun on my face. I can feel the cool and soft texture of the sand on my feet…

BBQs will always remind me of the good times that is why they will always be my favorite.
