my food traking connections

Jun 17, 2016

I read parts of Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan. Reading about food led me to track what food I eat. So some food I eat is Pb and j, mashed potatoes,bacon egg and cheese (etc).

One part of this book that stood out to me was “ when farmers first planted hybrid corn in the 1930s their yields doubled or tripled”pg 35.This quote means that farmers are genetically modifying corn to produce more kernels.

This quote makes me think about if all of the stuff I ate in my life was just corn.I made this connection because I like corn.making connection strategies is important because it helps you connects to other stuff like other books, or to myself, and the world.
