Aletter from “fridge analyzer”
Garbagein, garbage out the food stock in your refrigerator tells a lotabout your feeding habits. It also informs about the owner`spersonality and lifestyle. Do you still doubt my theory? Let usvisit the Mark Menjivar project and explore a picture displaying thefridge supplies of a New York resident. The image shows a vastcollection of bowls (covered with plastic wraps), eggs, butter, someseasoning bottles, green leaf vegetable, lemons, apples, and mangoes.I can tell that her favorite dishes consist of vegetables since thereis no meat. In addition, she is a very busy person and frequentlygoes to the grocery store to buy most of her vegetables and fruitsbecause the supplies are still in plastic bags. She, probably, is anactive cook like me due to her assorted supply of seasoningcontainers. Guess who my mystery person is? She is a food artist fromNew York and owns a vegan bakery from her apartment. Do you believein my ability now? Let us analyze my fridge.
Dearme! I see a big fridge with a range of jars containing seasoningspices on the left side door. On the opposite side, the shelves arefull of soft drinks – two big bottles of naked juice, one orangebeverage, and one homemade cocktail. In the second last compartmentfrom the bottom, there are several containers of pasteurized milkwhile the base drawer holds numerous take-out cups of yogurt and atin of canned biscuits. On the left-side drawer, there is a pack ofsausages and two canned tuna, as well as several jars of homemadecoconut oil. The first level of the fridge is occupied by bunches ofwater spinach, bean sprouts, cabbages, bell peppers, mushrooms, andcarrots. At the second shelf, adjacent to the jars of homemadepreservatives and at the left corner, there is a big container ofgreen leaf soup, a to-go bowl of salad with grapes, and a half-apple.Lastly, the top level has some leftover food, a sliced cheesecontainer, and a carton of eggs.
Giventhe broad range of seasoning spices in the fridge, you can easilytell that I am a cooking enthusiast and highly interested indeveloping new recipes. My section of drinks is packed with bigbottles of juices and milk but no fizzy beverages such as soda. Bynow I presume you know I am an aficionado of healthy cuisines. I amalso a “morning person” hence, the reason I have plenty of milkand juice for taking during breakfast. The small sources of proteinavailable in my fridge include sausages, canned tuna, and eggs. Itseems like I am not interested in meat that much or maybe I am tryingto become a vegetarian because the primary diets available arevegetables. Furthermore, I have several cups of yogurt with take-outsize in my drawer because I am working on healthy eating by consumingone cup of yogurt a day. The two drawers are also packed withhomemade coconut oil, pickled spices, and juice that indicate I amtrying-to-avoid a chemical lifestyle.
Goodjob! I have a healthy way of life. I like the way I am balancing thediets with juices, yogurt, vegetables, and fruit. However, if I amtrying to become a vegetarian, I propose that I design a meat-freediet with some other sources of protein like tofu, beans, green peas,mushrooms, and nuts. If I am just trying to limit red meatconsumption fish, chicken, and turkey may be a better choice thaneither canned tuna or sausages. Juices are good for my healthhowever, I need to reevaluate the nutrition constituents on eachjuice that I purchase. Naked juices, such as “the blue machine” Ihave in the fridge, come with 29 grams of sugar in each serving ofaround 240 ml. The quantity is quite high and unhealthy. One morething I want to talk about is the yogurt. It contains healthybacteria that can boost the immune system and the digestion thus, Ishould include it in every diet. However, the take-out cups of yogurtin my cooler are the flavored ones with artificial sweeteners. I planto be carefully reading the ingredient labels so that I can choosehealthier brands of the drink.
