You are what you Eat?
For this assignment-
You will keep a food journal for 3 days. Write down EVERY little thing that goes to your mouth. Along with a food mileage diary.
You will write down for everything you consume:
1. All the ingredients that it contains (whole foods and not the additives as these are harder to track down)
A. For example: If you have chips and salsa these would be the ingredients: jalapenos, ancho chile, cilantro,
tomatoes, onions, salt, corn (tortillas)
2. After you are done with the 3 days, on the third day, you will document how long each food stuff traveled to get to you – just for one day.
A. For example, if for breakfast you ate cereal and had coffee (cereal: wheat, sugar) If the cereal box does not
document where the wheat comes from (which it rarely does), do a quick google search to see where wheat for
American cereals are usually sourced: it might be the midwest, it might be somewhere in Europe. Most sugar
is either corn syrup or beet sugar. Again, do a quick google search. If you are eating whole foods like an apple, most
if not all produce has a sticker that tells you its origination.
Coffee: Columbia (3,469 miles)
This is an approximation, not an accurate scale because for processed (and even non processed food)- it heads to another destination to get processed or packaged before it goes into a warehouse and shipped to local grocery stores before you even touch it. The point is to see how much your food travels before you consume it.
The purpose of this challenging question is to summarize the learning objective of exercise approaches available to the emergency management community
