My love for coffee and food are both equal, but if I were given the choice whether to give up food or coffee, I would give up coffee. The benefits of choosing food outweigh the choices of coffee in my opinion. Food is a very important essential that provides us with energy throughout the day and it is needed to survive. Food carries necessary vitamins and nutrients that our body needs. Also, food has a lot of variety to choose from and it’s very delicious.
Unfortunately, those during the Civil war, soldiers were very limited in their food supply and resources, but their main necessity was coffee during that era. Based off of these articles I find it so fascinating that the civil war soldiers consumed a staggering amount of coffee throughout their day. I definitely assumed that the main food supply of consumption would have been mainly bread. I am very thankful that I am not limited in my supply and resources when it comes to coffee or food. I have such a love for food, but my guiltiest pleasure of them all would be potato chips. Despite the lack of health benefits that majority of chips may have I can’t resist the crunchy and saltiness it has to offer.
