Foods
#1
Food is any substance, usually composed primarily of carbohydrates, fats, water and/or proteins, that can be eaten or drunk by an animal or human for nutrition or pleasure. Items considered food may be sourced from plants, animals or other categories such as fungus or fermented products like alcohol. Although many human cultures sought food items through hunting and gathering, today most cultures use farming, ranching, and fishing, with hunting, foraging and other methods of a local nature included but playing a minor role.
Most traditions have a recognizable cuisine, a specific set of cooking traditions, preferences, and practices, the study of which is known as gastronomy. Many cultures have diversified their foods by means of preparation, cooking methods and manufacturing. This also includes a complex food trade which helps the cultures to economically survive by-way-of food, not just by consumption.
Many cultures study the dietary analysis of food habits. While humans are omnivores, religion and social constructs such as morality often affect which foods they will consume. Food safety is also a concern with foodborne illness claiming many lives each year. In many languages, food is often used metaphorically or figuratively, as in "food for thought".

Spam is yummy especially when fried. I don't recommend putting oil in the pan...the spam's fatty oils will suffice.

Ya' gotta add extra virgin olive oil!  It helps counter-act the saturated fats.

Next time I actually get myself to cook some, I'll remember that.

My eldest son loves that stuff.  Beats me why;  I never cook it.

I will admit, it was worth its weight in,( well, not quite gold but, you get the picture) when I was in Korea.  You could trade it for fresh (for lack of a better word) kimchee, rice, and various other vegetables, along with a soft drink, or two.
With that, and the right MREs, you had a feast!
