I like to illustrate how we see food as a social matter, trading food aspects with the community about what is accepted and not accepted.
We are and have developed a social stigma of what is considered an acceptable food culture and eating habits. The questions of how you eat and what you eat can be explained through this illustration.
Part 1: Sugar, sugar substitutes and sweetener
Is taking sugar substitutes or sweetener a trend or is it purely marketing strategy?
Part 2: Society view on weight
How do you view people who are obese and how would you view someone who is thin? Do you speculate their eating habit
Part 3: Healthier
How do you view the word 'healthier'? What food groups makes you healthier and why?
Part 4: Fast foods, calories and pleasure.
Categorization of fast foods as high calories but lack of nutrients food. How society view fast foods restaurants and how fast foods restaurant view themselves?
Part 5: Poverty and Hunger
Poverty and hunger- how society view them as root cause of malnutrition? Forgetting OBESITY as a bigger problem to handle.
Part 6: Vegan view of food
Vegan and their primary plant based diets. Switching to a greener diet.
These are some example of my new food series about food social acceptance. I got this idea from reading the book "Quiet' by Susan Cain illustrating how we are pushed into being a 'Ideal Extrovert' in this society because we believe being an extrovert, we earn more. It is just a push towards our life.
Similarly, I think everyone of us including myself are highly influenced by what recognized by our society as what we should eat and what we shouldn't. Our choice, if it is not main-stream, could be criticized and subsequently, face rejections.
