Dear boys and girls, today we’ll talk about different types of food and compare British and Ukrainian traditional dishes.
Read the poem.
Sandwiches are beautiful,
Sandwiches are fine.
I like sandwiches,
I eat them all the time.
A sandwich may be egg or cheese
Or even peanut butter,
But they all taste so good to me,
It doesn’t even matter.

Do we live to eat or eat to live? That is the question.
I remember as a child growing up in Britain having fish and chips or baked beans on toast at least twice a week on my lap while watching my favourite cartoon. Of course I enjoyed my food but it wasn’t something I often talked about. Now, I’m not blaming my culture for my lack of interest in food at an early age. Perhaps my silence was due to the fact that I didn’t know anything about food. How many children know that prawns only turn pink when they are cooked and that tuna does not come from a can? Now after having lived in Southern Europe, Asia and Australia I find myself talking about food all the time. The world has seduced my taste buds and opened my mouth.
Food that’s plain and simple is often the best but not always so. For many of us food is a need. For others, food is a friend. Yet to some others food is an enemy. Cravings grip us at all the wrong times while we struggle to follow a strict diet that turned all our favourite desserts into mortal sins. There are others who regard food as an investment. To them, food has some kind of special powers that can control their lives, for better or for worse. If that’s the case, it’s time to change and make food work for us.
Let’s start by using food the way you would use a pencil or a pair of scissors. We begin using food as a tool. Like tools, some food works well for some tasks and some is specially designed to accomplish others.
Let’s say you’re feeling down. You had a tough day or a tiff with a best friend that drove you round the bend. You decide to treat yourself to a bar of chocolate –nothing like chocolate to perk you up. Unfortunately you’re setting yourself up for a higher dose of the blues. That’s because chocolate bars have a hefty amount of fat and sugar – which takes a long time to digest and can draw energy away from your brain – and caffeine which will temporarily boost your mood and alertness but send you crashing back down as soon as its effect starts to wear off.
Does this mean snacking is a bad idea when you’re feeling down? Not at all. You just have to do it wisely. In place of a chocolate bar, have a slice of toast with chunky marmalade. Then instead of fat and caffeine you’ve just given yourself a dose of vitamin C that has been shown to fight depression. In addition, marmalade is loaded with the type of sugar that spurs the release of mood-lifting chemicals in the brain.
Answer the questions:
1. What does food mean to different people?
2. How can food help when you are in a bad mood?
3. Why is toast better to eat than chocolate?
4. Now we’ll speak about saving energy as it is really important nowadays.
We use electricity to cook food, to heat our homes and we can’t imagine our lives without it. Let’s think over possible ways of saving electric energy.
We should switch off lights when we leave a room.
We shouldn’t turn on the lights if it is not too dark.
We shouldn’t leave our mobile phones charging at night.
We should turn off the computer if we leave the room for some time.
(Students present their projects about ways of saving energy at home)
Today we have spoken about food which gives us energy to work and study and the importance of saving electricity which is not less important to people.
