International Food is Healthier
International food can be healthier than American food due to the lack of fast food restaurants, a lessened demand for processed foods, and just the simple routine of preparing meals for ones own family rather than spending money they may not have. America thrives on the Americans and what brings in revenue. Fast food resturants, junk food, and processed snacks flood the country. This is where obesity rates rise, and diseases come about because of Americas gullibility. I will present my meal replacement idea and give detailed examples to why I believe it can easily be a healthy, fast, easy to grab and go alternative.
Michael Moss book salt, sugar, fat: How the food giants hooked us is a tell all book on how the large corporations are falsely advertising foods t seem healthier then what it really is. I talks about how the food companies could care less about how healthy their products but how much money they get from each purchase. They purposely make food easy to go and easy to prepare because they know Americans live the fast life and don’t really look into what they are putting in their body. Take a hamburger for example companies such as, Pink Slime have found ways to speed up the preparation time of making this dish. I bet if made by yourself not already put together it would be heathier.
What I picked for my American food is Hamburger and French fries, and for my international food I picked a common food in Brazil, that is Rice and Beans, these two foods are pretty different because the Hamburger and the fries are considered junk food (fast food), also its a type of food that everybody know how to make and can be very fast and easy to make. The Rice and Beans is healthier. First it comes from another country which might make some Americans a little hesitant but it would be so worth it to replace these two meals.
