Food is a necessity for life
All living organisms need food to survive. It gives us energy for everything that we do. It also gives the body nutrients to repair muscles, organs and skin. Food helps us fight off dangerous diseases if we consume the right food.
Clean drinking water is intertwined with food you cannot have one without the other. As a matter of fact, water is more of a necessity for survival than food.
There are six main groups of nutrients: proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals and water. The energy that food gives us is measured in kilocalories, or one thousand calories. A calorie is the energy that is needed to raise the temperature of water by one degree Celsius.
Although water does not give us energy it is the most important nutrient. We may be able to live on without the others for weeks, but we cannot go on without water for more than a few days.
Water has many functions in our body. It helps break down food. It also cools the body down when it becomes too hot. The body carries away waste products in a watery solution. Our body needs about 2 –3 litres of water a day. We get it from the water and liquids we drink but also from fruits, vegetables and other food. The other two God givin necessities are clothes and shelter.
“Food, clothes and shelter is for everyone that shed no blood.” — Sizzla Kalonji
All human beings are inherently entitled to food, clean drinking water, clothes and shelter. Education and healthcare falls into place when the first four necessities of life take place.
All people everywhere have the same human rights which no one can take away. This is the basis of freedom, justice and peace in the world.
Food and Entertainment
Food and entertainment go hand in hand. Another key element of the food and entertainment industry are beverages such as cocktails, wine, champagne and beer. What lively party can go with them?
Where large audiences gather, there is often a legal requirement to feed and water them. Providing sufficient food and beverages is another valid requirement in connection with the event. Many businesses profit from this in the entertainment sector. Catering may facilitate a valuable experience for those interested in it. Event catering is a lucrative business if one’s intentions are in the right place.
The food of the Caribbean is as exciting and vibrant as the islands themselves. Luscious fruits, exotic vegetables and deliciously spicy flavors all go toward creating a cuisine that is rich in variety and packed with delightful surprises.
Ingredients that are common in most Caribbean island dishes are rice, plantains, beans, cassava, cilantro (coriander), bell peppers, chickpeas, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, coconut, and any of various meats that are locally available like beef, poultry, pork or fish.
For over 300 years, rum, distilled from sugar cane and its byproduct, molasses, has been the Caribbean’s coveted spirit.
Out of the whole Caribbean I would have to say I love Jamaican Cuisine because the culture and music is so near and dear to my heart.
