You Are What You Eat
It is true I am afraid, well in my case anyway. I love chocolates and it shows: in the tummy area, along the hips, in the face and everywhere. 🙂
Belonging to the class mammalia (species with the mammary glands, lol) we are rather versatile in what we include in what we eat.
There are at least four classifications of diets or intake of nourishment. Which do you belong?
- Herbivores, these are those who eat greens, the verdant leaves and sprouts of plants. Are you as vegetarian as the brontosaurus? Or cows and horses perhaps?
- Carnivores, these are those who like to eat meat. I must admit, I have to have meat in my diet. I am very partial to pork and chicken. Now and again, you here news of people who are practising cannibals, meaning they eat people. There are even news that during the Russian famine of the 1920s, food was extremely scarce the peasant started eating human limbs, which were up for sale. Anything for survival.
- Omnivores, these are those who eat greens and meat (also chocolates), which are us humans. We do like a variety in our diet. Apparently some bears are also known to be omnivores. We don’t just like to eat grass like cows and carabaos on pasture. We want a bit of both in our meals. Roast meat with three vegs. 🙂
- Insectivores, these are those who eat insects. Some humans have a penchant for eating insects like locust, crickets, grasshoppers and juicy spiders. Humans are now giving aardvarks a run for their money.
