You are what you eat?


I wonder if what we eat defines who we are?

In a world where choice is so abundant, our editing of that choice and the resultant bodily intake of our choice surely tells so much about eat of us as individuals.

Does our food say much about our socioeconomic status, our life aspirations, our body image an level of self-esteem, our (intended, supported or desired) social image as surely we try different things to eat when we are 'out'

What do you think?

  1. I think the way we consume food definitely has something to do with how we view ourselves in society. For example, eating sophisticated healthy food may make you feel like a sophisticated healthy person...well at least more likely than eating McDonalds!

    The most recent example is this underground food movement...posh restaurants are out and underground venues are in!
