When you are dine-out, how do you order your food? Is it only contain 1 type of food or more variety?
Say you are ordering vegetarian burger, it consists of wholemeal bun, organic vegetables, organic tomatoes, Portobello mushroom, cheese, sauce and others. If the waiter or waitress only served you, a wholemeal bun, are you going to accept it as vegetarian burger?
Another example, for Asian, rice is our main source of food, normally we will take rice together with variety of side dishes, to provide our body complete nutrition and also give appetite to eat. Imagine, if you are only served with rice without dishes, how do you feel?
