Do you live to eat or eat to live? Use The Way We Eat to introduce any course in foods or nutrition. Explore what role food plays in the lives of your students. Consider food as fuel, as convenience, as medicine, and as a social bond. Explore food and moods, the idea of food alienation, and future food.. Learn: - Food as Fuel: To those who believe food is fuel, faster is better - instant is best. Why "waste time" preparing food? - Food as Convenience: In the 1970's Americans spent over 3 hours daily preparing meals. By the 1990's the time dropped to 30 minutes. What about tomorrow? - Food as Medicine: Is eating a battleground between "healthy" foods that are "good for you" and "bad foods" that cause disease? - Food as a Social Bond: Do family meals have a future? What happens when "grazing" and meals-on-the-run become the norm? - Foods and Moods: Does food influence your moods? - Food Alienation: The nature of food today is hidden beneath layers of processing. Try telling a four-year-old at McDonald's he's eating cow meat! - Future Food: What will we be eating in twenty years? A rich diet of fresh meats, grains, and produce? How about all our daily needs from a skin patch?.
