Over a two day period, keep track of everything that you eat. In your record keeping, include the approximate amount of each item. Then, using information from any of a number of websites (e.g., http://www.thecaloriecounter.com/), determine the Calories associated with each food item you consumed. On some items, like food served at the dining commons, you may have to guess and base it on some reasonable average (e.g., 1 standard serving (1 cup) of spaghetti, 2 slices of cheese pizza, etc.). In other cases, the information may be readily available and on the packaging of the food item (candy bar, soda can). Make a table and tally up the total Calories consumed for each day. Include this information in your paper. Then discuss what items you might change or add to your diet for more balance (e.g. think USDA food recommendations for general guidance “MyPlate”; http://www.choosemyplate.gov/food-groups/ ), and provide alternative choices that you could select either with respect to the food itself or its processing/packaging/delivery to contribute to a more sustainable food production system.
