First of all: Eating healthy plays a huge role in being productive and concentrated, so this is important for each and every job, I think.
Also: Amongst others, I specialise in translating texts about just this topic. Food and diets are a huge topic in our modern society, and people can go as far as treating it like a religion (haven't we all heard of missionary and judgy vegetarians/vegans/pescetarians etc?)
There are so many new trends emerging so quickly, we can easily lose track and get lost completely.
As this is one of my specialist areas, I do read up a lot on most recent developments and "food fashions". Apart from eating sugar-free, clean eating and paleo, my most recent "field of curiosity" is the plant-based diet according to Mr Campbell's China Study from 2010. Quite coincidentally, I recently also watched the Netflix documentary "Food Choices" which is highly linked to what the China Study claims.
Both - the book and the documentary - highly influenced my way of thinking, and while I cannot imagine living on an exclusively plant-based diet, I did finally decide to do what I have been wanting to do for a long time but never followed through: I gave up meat.
That was about a week ago, and I thought I would like to write about that in my blog, as it is not only translation- but also health-related (due to my interest in the topic and the link to my scope of work). I also want to write about food trends and how I see (and in some cases tried) them, so I hope this is going to be interesting!
