We all love the taste of Junk food , comfort food and all kinds of processed foods ! Do you know why ? Most processed or packed food will put all sorts of chemicals to make them smell and taste good , so the thing you are putting in your mouth isn’t even food . I loved them too , however now I don’t miss it . Wisdom in the real sense will make you alter your habits . . Well for starters you need to understand what is processed food .
Processed foods aren’t just microwave meals and other ready to eat meals. The term ‘processed food’ applies to any food that has been altered from its natural state in some way, either for safety reasons or convenience.
This means you may be eating more processed food than you realize. One advantage of cooking food from scratch at home is that you know exactly what is going into it, including the amount of added salt or sugar and there are no chemicals .
However, even homemade food sometimes uses processed ingredients. Read on to find out how you can eat processed foods as part of a healthy diet.
What counts as processed food? Most shop-bought foods will have been processed in some way.
Examples of common processed foods include:
- Breakfast cereals
- Tinned vegetables
- Bread ( which you buy from the market is only 45% whole wheat !)
- Savory snacks ( all packed savory and salted food ) , such as Crisps / Chip .
- Meat products ( sausages and processed meat ) , Bacon
- “Convenience foods”, such as microwave meals or ready meals
- Drinks, such as milk ( pasteurized or homogenized ) or soft drinks
Food processing techniques include freezing, canning, baking, drying and pasteurizing products. All these products can make you age 10 times faster than normal organic , home cooked food . How ? Well there is no nutrition , so the energy of your body starts to deplete and you age at a much faster pace . Try to stick to traditional foods from your country ( what your grandmother and mom cooked ) . Its not as difficult as you think .
