How well we know our food?

As a human, after we find the fire, we learn how to cook our meat. Then we added some sauce; we try different types of cooking styles. Then we learn how to serve our meal and how to use a knife and fork properly. Then we start to find better food, like gluten-free, plant-based meat. Today we are developing pills that, can give us the same protein and nutritions as we are getting from our meals so that we can survive outside of our planet. And we don't have to lose time by searching and cooking for food. Usually, our mouth can only sense the best different taste — sweet, salty, bitter, sour, and umami. The origin of the Umami word is coming from Japanese. It means is 'delicious.' Also, umami reminds me of Umami Burger in Los Angeles. I try all kinds of burgers in all variety of places, but Umami Burgers in Hollywood is the best. It was very close to my home; I was there most of the time. By the way, they have very tasty Truffle Fries. The scientist is now discovering another taste sensation. Which is call Oleogustus. This new taste is a way to refer to the sensation. This sense helps us taste fat. "Oleo" is a Latin root word for oily or fatty, and "gustus" refers to taste. Cigarettes, alcohol, and fat are harmful to our body, but -sugar- is worst. Stay away from sugar. Sugar is the most dangerous thing you can put into your body. I read an article that says, 60 years ago, the sugar industry quietly paid Harvard scientists to point blame at fat. The result was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1967, with no disclosure of the sugar industry funding. This shows us; we shouldn't believe everything we read, even the information coming from scientists. Food is fuel for our bodies. Wrong fuel can cause damage in a long way. Before purchasing food or starting a diet, do your research from so many different sources. Cacao makes the synaptic connection stronger. That means if you eat a bar of chocolate before the conversation, that makes that's conversation more tolerable. Also, I know it's funny but, about 16.4 million American adults believe chocolate milk comes from brown cows, according to a survey commissioned by the innovation center of U.S Dairy. While this is the mindset in America in Europe thing call Food for Soul. Food for Soul is a non-governmental organization founded by chef Massimo Bottura to encourage communities to fight food waste. Food for Soul believes in the importance of providing involved environments to bring dignity back to the table. His projects are embellished with art, design, and beauty to offer a holistic approach to nutrition to nurture both body and soul. Food for Soul is not a charity project; it is a cultural project. Also, there is another new trend; it calls Meal prep. In Meal prep, you prepare your meals weekly or several days in advance. "What am I going to eat?" To avoid stress, you prepare your weekly breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks in an instant. "What is the difference from normal food preparation?" meal prep has many advantages. Some of those; learning portion control, saving time, preventing food waste, healthier life and more. So anyway, what are you gonna eat tomorrow?
