If you would like to improve your lifestyle, get to know the benefits of natural food.
The definition for unprocessed food refers to food in its most natural state. These are products with no labels or packaging.
“A day full of vegetables” is an activity worthy of our attention – it originated in France (Jour du Legume) where it functions within the Louis Bonduelle Fund. Its purpose is to increase the vegetable consumption in restaurants and to change eating habits.
Some examples of unprocessed, nutritious products:
Fresh unprocessed vegetables and fruits are best and they can’t be replaced by any other food product. They are a rich source of vitamins, mineral salts and fibre. Because of their composition and minimal fat level (except for coconut and avocado) the caloric value of unprocessed vegetables and fruit is low in comparison to other foods.
Unprocessed food is also more aromatic than cooked food. It doesn’t require much salt, spices or sugar. The spices mix up the digestion process and sharpen the appetite.
There are over 2,600 additives used in food processing and new ones are being created all the time. These additives are used in order to stabilise, give colour, enhance flavour and to strengthen the food. They are created and produced by the food industry and also aim to lengthen expiry dates and to make storing easier.
Nowadays there is more processed food than ever before. Each new product is a reason to take a healthy decision. Reading labels, sensible choices of portions, or reading out the names of additives takes away the pleasure of eating. With the help of a good cookbook and a little bit of cooperation on our side, we can easily improve our healt.
