Transcript of Why We Eat What We Do

Why We Eat What We Do By Monica Hess, Christian Scantling, George Delgado, Anita Alvarado Religion Many different religions do not include certain foods in their diet because of their beliefs. Some religious practices include fasting or abstaining from food for periods of time. Some religions that avoid specific foods and/or fast are Hinduism, Judaism, and Islam. Meal: Hinduism
Vegetables, whole grains, fruits, nuts, no beef
Puri (flat bread deep- fried in ghee or oil), Dahl (lentil and beans soup), sabji (preparation made from vegetables, usually spiced), lassi (yoghurt and water drink) Friends Some friends are health conscious & make people move to better choices. Some friends can make you go in a negative direction. They influence what you eat because you want to fit in with them and eat similarly. Meal: Good Influence
