We all know it’s important to take care of our bodies and eat wholesome foods. But that doesn’t mean we always do it. Fast food and other types of processed foods are quick and convenient. They’re also often cheaper than buying fresh meats and vegetables to cook for yourself. But if you make the effort to eat more natural foods, your body will probably thank you. Hear Devan try to convince Jeff to go natural with his diet.

2. Study - Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.





Devan:  Jeff, why are you eating that garbage again? You’re always eating this processed food full of sugar. Don’t you think it’s time to go organic?

Jeff:  I’d like to, but I just don’t have the time, and I don’t really have that much money. I can get a lot of tasty, salty food for cheap and fast.

Devan:  I’ve heard that argument a lot, that people don’t eat natural foods because they’re more expensive. But don’t you think that if there was anything you were gonna spend money on, it should be what you put in your body? It’s much more wholesome.

Jeff:  My time is the most important thing to me. I’m always on the run. So whatever’s fastest is where I’m going.

Devan:  Do you like the way natural food tastes?

Jeff:  Yeah, sometimes. It’s alright. But, you know, a lot of times it’s bland. Why, when did you become Miss Wholesome?

Devan:  When I realized that feeling good is the greatest gift you can give yourself.

You are what you eat. I completely agree with that, so I tried to plant some vegetables in boxes at my home. But unfortunately they didn’t grow well  and when I asked a specialist  in agriculture  he advised me to add some chemical  additives!!!  Moreover organic food is very costy and you can find it in special stores which aren’t common. So it’s always better to eat home made food, it’s wholesome and tasty.

Here’s my Skype name safaa. mohamed 655 I will be very glad to add me in your Skype .

Viet Nam

In Vietnam, we almost just eat natural foods everyday. So we have to go to the market every days too. It’s cheaper than fast food ^ (i don’t know why), and the matter now is the time, so search on Google the Vietnamese cuisine, learn some simple dishes and enjoy your dishes. Absolutely, sure you that it’s better than eating fast food.Tongue out

Add me we can discuss more ^

I think eating time is very importance for me. I will use time to cook and eat with my family. That is the happiest that I can find on each day.

I like Devan’s line, “When I realized that feeling good is the greatest gift you can give yourself.” It sounds crisp and cool!

01:36 PM Jun 03 2012 |




anyway,i think  health is the best

Well, i also agree with Devan, but its hard to commit yourself with only wholesome foods. Sometimes its convenient to just eat soms prosessed food instead of preparing a nice organic meal with only natural ingredients.

I like natural , unprocessed food. I think it’s a little bit bland, but I feel flesh after eating them. according to newspaper, the rich have more possibility to eat natural rather than processed food. it’s because financial burden. however, why don’t try to put more mony on our body rather than spending on more money on other things.
