Write about FOOD

Postby Pirate » Fri May 20, 2005 12:47 am

Grow, Harvest, Cultivate, Produce, Prepare, Consume - Food!

Food is the lifeblood of human existence. Without it we become weak, inert, demoralized. Hunger and malnutrition permeate the planet. While some go without, others sustain their livelihoods by its production. And even others rarely think about where there food comes from; it is always just readily available. Despite these extremes, food acts as a unifer. People learn about one another through the sharing of food. Appreciation for difference is cultivated too. What do you eat? How do you make it? Where do you buy your food? Are you a farmer, a cook, a vegetarian? Do you want to be? What is your favorite meal? What are you yearning to try? What are the essential foods?

Hunger, eating disorders, agriculture, droughts, hormones and pesticides, nutrition, fair trade, food allergies, and food contamination - it's up to you to choose the issue that is relevant to you. You have an empty plate and a fully stocked kitchen. Create a food masterpiece and submit it to Panorama!

Best food can made only of things, what is grown in your own garden, or at least in your own country. Here is unfortunately so many fakes. Example: If I want buy potatoes, then almost all sellers saing it's good Estonian stuff, but actually it's some cheap dasteless thing from south. I don't like things that is imported. I want good things that is grown in my own country.

Equitable and ecological food.

Consum local, for example : buy vegetables produced in the country (or better if possible : in the region) where you buy them.

I understand, but you can't find all kinds of food right at your place :wink: . Enjoy some imported food if they really are!
