Chew on this ted talk
How the food you eat affects your brain – mia nacamulli
What motivates you? What inspires you? What motivates you to achieve success? Many restaurateurs can name one or two people who played a key role in their decision to open a restaurant. Those mentors or coaches could still be there for them today. One thing is certain: the restaurant industry is highly tight-knit. That’s because running a restaurant isn’t easy, and having input from others can be extremely beneficial. If you’ve never heard of TED Talks, you’re in for a treat: these presenters on Technology, Culture, and Design will really inspire you, and their talks are so personable that you feel like they’re in the back office with you. Personally, I listen to a TED Talk on my way to work almost every morning, and it gives me energy for the rest of the day. Any time you need a little inspiration, bookmark this page and watch these visionaries’ ideas about running profitable, sustainable restaurants.

TED speakers have covered a broad variety of topics, including life-extension diets and innovations that could revolutionize the way the world grows food.
Mark Bittman, a food writer for the New York Times, points out the flaws in the modern American diet in this amusing and passionate conversation. We eat too much meat, not enough vegetables, too much fast food, and we rarely cook at home, according to him. All of these things place the world in peril, but there are easy improvements we can make in our daily lives to mitigate the crisis.
Malcolm Gladwell, author of “The Turning Point,” addresses Howard Moskowitz, an American psychophysicist known for producing modern Prego spaghetti sauces. Moskowitz hoped that by giving customers as many options as possible, they would find their preference. Gladwell delves into the essence of choices and satisfaction in his talk. In fact, he believes that no one knows what they truly desire.

TED is a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing ideas through short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED started in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment, and Design collided, and has since expanded to address nearly every subject imaginable, from science to industry to global issues, in over 100 languages. Meanwhile, TEDx gatherings, which are organized separately, promote the exchange of ideas in cultures all over the world.
I’ve seen TED Talks about various subjects, such as body image or technology, on the internet at random. But I had no idea that Netflix has collections of TED Talks on various subjects, including food. As a result, I worked my way through Chew on This. (If you don’t have Netflix, all of these talks are available on You Tube or on TED’s website.)
Jamie Oliver starts things off with a quick lesson on school lunches. To make a point about how much sugar kids eat, he even brings a wheelbarrow full of sugar onto the stage. Other speakers, including Ann Cooper, a California lunch lady on a crusade, talk about food in schools as well. You should also anticipate a lecture by Mark Bittman of the New York Times about what’s wrong with the way we eat.

It should go without saying that TED talks contain some of the most strong inspiration available anywhere on the planet. They can easily be mined for the next big idea, motivation to drive through a challenge, or an idea that helps you unlock more of your ability by providing just the right change in your perception.
Every education system in the world is currently undergoing change, but it is insufficient. Reform is no longer useful because it merely improves a broken model. What we need is a revolution in education, not evolution. This must be changed into something new.
What we’re discovering is that it’s the prism through which your brain views the world that forms your reality, not the reality itself. And if we can change the lens, we can change not only your satisfaction, but also every single educational and business result.
You can only be genuinely effective at something you enjoy. Make money your secondary target. Instead, follow your passions and do them so well that people can’t tear their gaze away from you.
