All You Can Eat
Recently I had some family in town and they wanted to eat somewhere that they did not have in their home town. Being as we live in Wyoming, this was about everything. We eventually decided we were going to go eat at Red Lobster. This was not my first choice as I don’t like paying an arm and a leg for dinner, but once we walked in the door I was glad that is where we decided to go. This was one of the best meals I have had from a restaurant in a long time for the service was amazing, the atmosphere was comfortable, and it was their All You Can Eat Shrimp promotion.
We started our experience at the front door like all guests. We were immediately greeted by their host Amy who had a big smile on her face and a warm welcome. And even though there was a little bit of a wait, she kept us informed on how long we were going to be waiting and that helped out a lot. Then once we were seated our server Cassandra came by and told us what the specials were and took our drink orders. The whole evening she was right there, making sure that we had everything that we needed and made our meal move along very smoothly. To say the least, she was one of the best servers that I have seen, and the service was just the start of it!
The atmosphere of the restaurant was about perfect. It wasn’t too hot or too cold at our table. The music was loud enough that I could not hear the conversation at the next table but quiet enough that I could still hear the one that was happening at our own table. We had a couple of kids with us and they, too, were very comfortable. They were brought coloring pages and crayons to keep them entertained and this also helped us adults because we were able to talk with each other and not have to entertain the kids so much.
Then comes the best part of all, the All You Can Eat Shrimp promotion. Like I said before, I hate paying an arm…...

...studies have looked into development of health related communities and their impact on those already suffering health issues. These forms of social networks allow for open conversation between individuals who are going through similar experiences, whether themselves or in their family.[9] Such sites have in fact grown in popularity, so much so that now many health care providers are forming groups for their patients, even providing areas where questions may be directed to doctors. These sites prove especially useful when related to rare medical conditions. People with rare or debilitating disorders may not be able to access support groups in their physical community, thus online communities may be their primary means for such support. It can serve as an outlet of support by connecting with others who truly understand the disease, as well as more practical support, such as receiving help adjusting to life with the disease.[10] Involvement in social communities of similar health interests has created a means for patients to further develop a better understanding and behavior towards treatment and health practices.[11][12] This has patients using such outlets on more occurrences, but the extent to which these practices have on health as a result of use are still being studied. Studies on health networks have mostly been conducted on groups which typically suffer the most from extreme forms of diseases, for example cancer patients, HIV patients, or other life threatening......

...You are what you eat. For some people this phrase sounds pretty ridiculous, but the truth is, what we put into our body will affect us in many ways. Food is something that can’t only be something that tastes good. It needs to be something that doesn’t hurt your body. There are so many benefits to eating healthy. For example, it can give you more energy throughout the day. Studies show that something like a bowl of oatmeal is one of the best ways to start of your morning. Eating healthy can also make you stronger physically. Putting the right food in your body can do as much as burning off fats. Overall, it keeps your body at its best and can help you move forward at your best. Some people in the world like to see you are what you eat as describing the particular foods that people eat. For example, someone may only like vegetables such as a vegetarian, and others may only eat sushi. To narrow it down, some people may like mashed potatoes, and others may like to eat macaroni and cheese. The food that people prefer can characterize them in many different ways. To say that you are what you eat, can mean a variety of thing to other people. Depending on how you look at it, it can mean anything from a healthy stand point to the way you characterize people in the kinds of food that they prefer. Eating healthy is a major part of the body that can give us many benefits in life. What we choose to eat, can define us in ways that we may or may not like. Choosing......

...Firstly, children are being taken affect from fear of violence. Small children don’t have a good realization so they can’t distinguish between realistic and fantasy (Lane 2007). As a result, they can easily be trauma and being a victim of violent crime. Secondly, effect from negative information set up bad stereotypes and behaviours (Lane 2007). For example, smoking and drinking alcohol is a bad manner in an exciting environment. Young children are easily impacted by actions of their idols. They are too young to recognise which behaviour is right or wrong. They only want to show off themselves to be the same whom they admire. We need to teach them it’s a blind action. Next, commercials, exaggerated sense and distorted sense of materialism are also some effects that attack to children (Lane 2007). More and more game show and films or any programs give prominence to money or jewels. It makes them think little about sentiment and just notice matter. Finally is effect from social and learning such as sitting passively and watching educational programming is not good for children’s creative. It’s because they need time to find out their imaginations and socialization with other people. Moreover, there are some physical impacts of television on children.

...of corporate wellness and employee-assistance programs. "So you should eat like an athlete." At the very least, that means lots of lean protein, fruits and vegetables, and complex carbohydrates; no processed foods; and minimal white flour and sugar. But when you spend all day confronting challenging mental tasks, the brain's nutritional demands are greater. For example, have you ever worked so hard that it felt as though your brain were on fire? It sort of was, says Patti Milligan, director of nutrition at Tignum, a consultancy that helps businesses boost employee performance through holistic wellness programs. "You produce lots of oxidants in the brain when you're working," she says. "Foods that are high in antioxidants--berries, beans, apples, tea--act like flame retardants." And don't forget water. "The brain is 70 to 80 percent water," Milligan says. "When it's metabolically active 10 to 12 hours a day, removing metabolic waste from the brain requires optimal hydration." She suggests "super-hydrating" with two cups at the beginning of the day and avoiding "dehydrators," like processed sugary foods, high doses of caffeine, and soda. And watch out for "brain fog," which can be evidence that you need to hydrate. Speaking of caffeine, "coffee depletes serotonin, which contributes to a sense of well-being," says Barbara Mendez, a New York City nutrition consultant who works with many business clients.

...You Are What You Eat Linand Blanc Professor Pamella Robinson Principles of Sociology 7/30/2011   Abstract Some may think that carrots and brown rice are healthy eating habits here in the United States. However there are some places in the world including the US where toasted insects, roasted cat and dogs, and even raw monkey brains are a delicacy. Whether you yourself would eat these types of food or not, we know that humans have been consuming cats dogs and yes even monkeys for decades. But my question is why did they find the need to eat these types of meats? Were beef, chicken, fish and pork not enough? Or maybe we’re the ones who don’t know what delicacy eating really is. Maybe we shouldn’t have such a closed mind to eating cats and dogs. Maybe by the end of this week I will be one that becomes an Entomophily.   The Holy Bible goes into great details on what we can and cannot eat. The dietary laws prohibit eating pork, shrimp, and shellfish of any kind, most insects, scavenger birds, and various types of other animals. (Leviticus chapter 11) Although the Bible doesn’t say anything about the domestic animals such as cats and dogs but many religions consider the consumption of these animals to be taboo. In some parts of the word others have resorted to eating felines and k-9’s in desperation during hard times and poverty, and others believe that eating them will bring good luck or good health. Cats and Dogs In North China eating cats is......

...You are what you eat! Often when we pass McDonald’s in the city, we see that all the seats are taken. The visitors cram their mouths with cola and burger, and we can’t be sure that these often swollen people do exercise. Yes, we are all aware of the fact that our society today suffers from the so-called obesity epidemic. You are what you eat. But if you eat too much obesity can have many serious consequences such as heart disease, diabetes and difficulties with walking. But we can look at obesity as a result of social inheritance, where poor people often buy cheap unhealthy food. On the other hand you can also be genetically disposed for obesity. Studies show that being physically active, the risk of obesity is significantly less. If these poor people begin doing exercise, then they will be healthier. To be with other people and do sport instead of being indoors close to the fridge might save you from being obese. The cause of obesity can also be that a big part of the population suffers from food illiteracy. Some people think that they can eat whatever – but that might result in obesity. It’s important that the population get taught about healthy food. But do we not live in a society where everyone should be able to distinguish between healthy and wholesome, wrong and correct? We are and will be informed almost every day about what is healthy and unhealthy, but perhaps it is something you should be taught in school. You need to get control of yourself, because it is......

...Magazines at the grocery store, commercials on TV and movies playing at local theaters, all of these forms of entertainment seem to be harmless outlets of creativity. Yet these very forms of media affect women all over the world and tell them what they should physically look like to be deemed as beautiful in society. One may not believe that the media is up to such a terrible act, but subconsciously women believe what the media portrays as beautiful. Today’s pop culture demonstrates the impact of self-image and the effect it has on society and the way the society should look. Ads and pop culture enforce a negative outlook on the body image, which affects young women throughout the society. There are many aspects of today’s society that effect women within this pop culture and the way they have started to look at their bodies and see themselves as below average because they are not measuring up to the standards of society. In all reality, media and advertisement must know the effects it has on the young women and their body image in the world, but choose to ignore the fact because of the success that has sky rocketed in the past years. Not many people can ignore the media and find themselves beautiful no matter what features they have, but the ones who do such things are confident and strong while growing up in this tough and harsh world. Ads within television, magazines, newspapers, etc. all have some direct correlation to the media having an effect on the body image of......

...ENGL 111-A Essay 5 – Persuasion You Are What You Eat Did you know that there are twenty-one ingredients in that box of macaroni and cheese you are feeding your children? What is sodium tripolyphosphate? Can you pronounce it? Think about it, do you really know what you are feeding your children every day? Unfortunately, most of us do not. We all want to feed our families wholesome, nutritious meals, but in today’s busy world it seems almost impossible. Our grocery stores shelves are filled with food that is full of chemicals, pesticides, and refined sugars, but do not have much nutritional value. As a society we have got to start making smarter food choices. Obesity and diabetes have become an epidemic in this country due to the lack of proper nutrition. As working mothers, we have to get food on the table fast. Often, we have very little money to do it with so we buy what we can afford. This often means we end up feeding our family packaged and processed foods. Our children and our families are seeing the consequences of this in their health and weight. We need to stop thinking that it is too hard and too expensive to eat well, and get creative and persistent with teaching our children health eating habits while they are young. One half of school age children who are currently obese will still be obese when they become adults. (Serdula M. K.) Today, one out of every three Americans is considered to be obese.

Pierce she shows her findings of how the emerald green sea slug lives months at a time by feeding on the sunlight, similar to a plant, (Photosynthesis) the article clarifies how the sea slug (Elysia chlorotica) absorbs the genes of the algae (Vaucheria litorea) that it eats, thus turning the slug into the very algae that it eats. The slug (Elysia chlorotica) manages to live for months by utilizing photosynthesis. To do this the slug stores the chloroplasts from the algae that it feeds on and by doing so, initiates a gene transfer; from one multicellular species to another. A new find for scientist. If not amazing enough that the slug can steal and store the chloroplast from the food that it eats it even goes as far as boosting the usefulness of the chloroplast 10 times longer than the algae that it adsorbed it from could......

Why You Should Eat Breakfast

...going to start out by asking you this. How many of you eat breakfast everyday? Well did you know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Many people skip this meal and in fact, it is shown that less than 40 percent of Americans eat breakfast every day. Most people have very busy schedules leaving them with little time to eat breakfast. However, you should try your best to eat a nutritious meal before you start your day. There are a number of reasons to why you should eat breakfast. I’m going to tell you about 5 of those. The first reason why breakfast is so important is because its gives you an energy boost to start your day. What our bodies need in the morning is a meal that includes each of the three macronutrients: protein, good fats and complex carbohydrates. Protein’s role is to provide sustainable energy. It takes longer to digest than carbohydrates, so it will hold you over until lunchtime. A good protein breakfast would be eggs. Fats are equally important, as long as you stick to good fats like olive oil. Use olive oil in the pan when you make eggs. Complex carbohydrates provide glucose, our body’s main source of energy. Glucose is the brain’s sole source of energy. That’s where you get your sharp attitude and quick wit. Also, our muscles lean on glucose for sustained energy. Good sources of complex carbs are whole-grain bread, waffles or cereal. The second reason why you should eat breakfast is because it makes you smarter. You are more likely to......

All You Can Eat Buffet

...Ludibina Rivas ECON 2302 Spring 2015 Course Learning Outcome #3 Activity Restaurant are willing to offer all you-can-eat buffet meals and still make money from customers because of the law of diminishing marginal utility. This law states that the more of a good you consume per period, the smaller the increase in your additional consumption (McEachern). This is what helps restaurants make money from buffets. When a person goes into a restaurant that offers a buffet they are ready to eat as much as they can. They well instantly enjoy their first plate thinking they want to keep eating more and are making their money worth. As soon as they serve their second plate they have two factors that will affect if they are going to go for that third plate. First thing would be that they aren’t going to enjoy that second plate as much as the first, so it wouldn’t want to make them go for a third plate. The second factor would be by the time they finish that second plate most people get full. If they serve themselves that third plate, while being full they are not going to get anymore satisfaction from the meal. So yes, restaurants do gain profit from all you-can-eat buffets. Due to the fact that they attract more people thinking they are going to eat as much food as they want for one price. Works Cited McEachern, William A. ECON-Principles of Microeconomics. 4th. Stamford: Cengage Learning, 2014....

...You Are What You Eat Ever wonder why organic food prices are higher than non-organic produce? For example, when shoppers go into the produce section of the store they see two parts, organic produce and non-organic. Non-organic strawberries are cheaper than organic strawberries. Why would the price differ if they are both the same strawberries? They may taste the same, but the non- organic strawberry have pesticide residue on it. Eating organic food is healthier than non-organic food, because organic food does not contain harmful pesticides, have a higher nutrient content, and does not contain genetically modified organism. Organic is referred to the way farmers grow and process their products. Organic food is better for the environment. Organic growers conserve energy by decreasing the use of fossil fuel. By organic farmers doing this, it helps to minimize the environment pollution. Farmers on an organically farm do not use harmful pesticides to grow their food. A pesticide is a substance used for destroying insects or organism harmful to discriminating animals and plants. Organic farmers use safer methods to protect their crops. One of the rigorous methods is trapping insects instead of using pesticides that can stay on non-organic produce. On the other hand, conventional growers use toxic substances to protect their crops. Even with washing off conventional produce there is still residue left on the food. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, pesticides......

... When I think about food the first thing that comes to mind is taste, smell, texture, color and flavor. I think of my creations as a masterpiece. A form of art that takes time, patience and love. Food plays a crucial role in my life; it doesn't just fuel my mind, body or soul it defines me. It takes me on a road trip where I can transform basic ingredients or not-so-basic ingredients into a disaster or into a mural that is fascinating and soothing to the eye. The dishes I create take me on a remarkable journey that leaves an everlasting impression of memories and stories. Can you say the same? Maybe not, maybe yes. Either way it goes let's imagine it can together. I remember the first time I tried my grandmother's Rice pudding. The memory is still fresh on my mind. The rice was sticky and creamy, raisins were ripe and perky, and the smell of the cinnamon indulged my senses, with each and every waking bite the pudding did a tantalizing salsa dance on my tongue that I will never forget. The very next day I asked my grandma can she teach me how to make her rice pudding, at first she was reluctant but eventually she gave in. The most important lesson that my grandma taught me, was in order to make this pudding successful, the rice had to be just right (no Uncle Ben's) this was drilled in my head over a dozen one times, no excuses. "Today as I stand over a bowl of cold water and rice, scrubbing, (Dash, 140) I felt a strong presence watching over me just like Dash felt when her...
