"You are what you eat but you are what you eat eats, too."

- Chef Dan Barber from The Third Plate

Because energy is simply transferred from one form to another, never created or destroyed, this concept means that everything we have ever eaten, everything that we have ever eaten has eaten, and so on, makes up who we are. From what plants eat to the plants that animals eat, to the water that we drink, we literally are what we eat.
