Writing Task 2- Create a blog post. The blog post will extol the benefits of: liver, Brussels sprouts, escargot, horse meat, aubergines
You should assume that the client is someone who has a vested interest in wanting people to buy these foods but the reader won’t know it. Do not include any information that can result in an accusation of false claims.
Are you just like me and keep thinking how and what do I eat to improve my health and maintain a balanced healthy diet?
For me that has now changed because of five key food types which I have now introduced to my diet.
First up on the menu is Liver, which is a food that I personally never actually eaten before- until now. The reason I now include this in my diet is because of its very high source of Vitamin B-12. This is a vitamin that is great for the body because it contributes to the creation of red blood cells and turns acids into protein building acids. The same can’t be said for the human liver, meat rich in beer and vodka just won’t make the supermarket shelf I’m afraid people.
Now this one is my favourite and it’s simply because of its reputation as a slightly ugly and very smelly vegetable. Yes, you guessed it, the famous Brussel Sprout. Now I’m sure there are a few people out there like myself who do enjoy a Brussel sprout or two, so they are the lucky ones. If you are looking for some food that will contribute towards a weight loss program then look no further because the Brussel sprout is your way out! 100g of these bad boys contains just 45 calories and zero cholesterol, not to mention its source of protein and fibre. But let’s not make the haters too mad shall we.
Moving onto my next food type which is a traditional French appetizer that contain virtually no sugar, no fat and no carbohydrates. The Escargot ladies and gentlemen. Better known as the snail has been hiding its goodness under its shell for far too long. It is so good in fact that it is believed to be a trusted mood enhancement because of a chemical called tryptophan, which helps your brain produce serotonin. Remember kids, don’t do drugs. Take slugs!
Horse meat. Yes, straight to the point. Horse meat is very low in fat, 2 to 5% in fact. Rich in Iron and contain many high-quality proteins. Now we all know the reasoning behind not eating horse meat, since horses are intelligent animals. But this is what makes the meat so rich in its nutritional values. The longer and healthier life the horse has, the better the meat becomes.
Ok let’s bring it back down a little from that last one. The magnificent Aubergine! The reason for its big introduction is because by day it’s a fruit (A berry to be exact, for all my berry fanatics out there) and by night a vegetable. Crazy stuff I know. It’s full of vitamins, fibre, minerals and has the potential to lower cholesterol. At this rate, I might have to throw in some high cholesterol foods to regain some balance.
