Every senior is required to complete a senior project, with the subject being of our own choice. I've decided to base my project around eating healthy.
I'm not trying to create another campaign to tell America that they shouldn't eat Big Macs. People know Big Macs are bad for them. A person needs to make the decision to eat healthier on their own. But once somebody decides to change their eating habits for the better, it's often difficult for them to actually figure out what is good for them, what isn't, which nutrients to look for, what to stay away from, what those unknown ingredients are, etc. Confusing nutrition labels and false claims from food brands don't make it any easier.
For my senior project, I'd like to rethink the nutritional label system, change the way that people think about and learn about food, and educate people on what they should be putting in their bodies, once they decide on their own they'd like to eat healthier.
This blog is a way for me to organize and categorize my research on healthy eating.
