  • Reflection Question
    Health More Fruits and Veggies
    What do you think contributes to people in North America eating more meat than any other places, and what does this say about North American values and ways of living? How can we start shifting from a meat-focused food culture to a more plant-based one?

    North America is notorious for its fast food industry - places like McDonalds, Arby's, Burger Kind... the list goes on and on, and they all market MEAT! Meat tastes amazing, eating meat makes you look more manly, meat is the solution.... and so on and so forth. In reality, science shows that a plant-based diet will actually make you feel physically and mentally much healthier. It is hard to argue with science, so maybe the culture can shift its way of thinking by thinking about food consumption from a science-based perspective.
