What am I giving my sister?

I read parts of Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan. Reading about food led me to track my own food. Some things I’ve eaten are cereal, chicken, candy, fruits.

One part of the book that stood out for me is the chapter on chicken nuggets. Page 119 says “Chicken Mcnugget contain nearly twice as much fat as a regular hamburger.’’ This quote means to me that a chicken nugget from McDonald's, that I always buy for my sister is not 100% chicken. This quote make me think about the food that my sister and I eat.

I wonder if the food that I eat is really what it says it is because the ingredients say what exactly goes into making the food.

Making connections is an important reading strategy because it can help me understand what a book is about and making connections with my life and finding out information about things I don’t know.
