Pollan in his book “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” examines the various food chains that occur among omnivores. Human beings and other omnivores tend to be faced with the dilemma of food choices as they grapple with the understanding of the most suitable foods for them. Omnivores have to come up with ways of ensuring that they make preferences in terms consumption patterns. Hence, Emerson’s quotes come in handy in the event of the eating habits.
The food chain is always interrelated. Before it gets to the consumers, it has to pass through the producers. For instance, in the case of the cone meal, the corns come from the land. In the land, part of the corns gets consumed by the animals (Pollan 67). Hence, before it gets harvested, part of the cones is always missing from the cobwebs. The cones can be used to provide a variety of end sources that may include flour, cone flakes and doughnuts(Pollan 85). Moreover, the corns can be incorporated into the beef products (Pollan 85). At the end of the day, the omnivores have to come up with a decision on what to consume from the different foods.

The type of meal that the omnivores consume should be nutritious and add value to their health. Having four meals in a day may make it hard for the omnivores to come up with choices on what to consume(Hyperink web). It should be noted that the dilemma has taken a toll especially with the advancement in technology. However, the omnivores need to know that at the end of the day having a balanced diet is the most important thing when it comes to meals.
