  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our bodies, our planet, and other people?

    Richer people eat more meat because they can afford it. Steak is very expensive especially quality steak. Go to a quality restaurant and their steak is anywhere from 35-50 dollars and can even be more than that. Meat can negatively impact our bodies because its saturated in fats and can lead to high cholesterol and heart disease. For our planet meat requires a lot of water to clean the meat and prepare it for shipment which requires a lot of energy  
  • Reflection Question
    Food Smaller Portions
    While dishing food out, we tend to load our plates with more than we need. Using smaller plates helps to mitigate this. Aside from the environmental benefits, what other benefits might come from eating/serving smaller portions?

    Eating in smaller portions allows you to eat and be satisfied and not to overeat. Overeating causes you to take in more calories than you can burn causing you to gain weight. Also smaller portions ensure everyone gets some food to eat. We as Americans tend to eat more than we need and throw the excess out
