Pick right, Eat right
Eating well is a timeless advice for living healthy. Eating is not only a material enjoyment. Eating good gives an astonishing comfort to life and contributes largely to goodwill and happy life. There is no sincerer love than the love of food. It is of great importance to the spirit.
Eating healthy is imperative to all fitness goals and ambitions whether you want to build more stamina or loose weight. However, eating healthy is not just restricted to staying off the junk, but also includes ensuring the food you are having is as healthy as it looks. In the current times, ‘food safety’ has emerged as a real challenge due to the excessive use of chemicals like fertilisers, pesticides, taste enhancers, artificial colours.
Contaminated food can cause more than 200 diseases such as diarrhoea.
Not that fresh
Over the years, the overuse of pesticides and fertilisers has made food more dangerous than healthy. Lack of clean water and poor sanitation make the matter worse.
Looks can be deceptive when it comes to fruits and vegetables that we buy nowadays. Harmful flavors, colours and oils are used to give them a healthy glaze. Therefore, they are actually not as fresh and juicy as they appear. The nutrition value of raw foods has gone miserably low with preservation and storage.
Temperature does it all
We all know that bacteria multiply faster at warmer temperature. One has to be extra watchful in summers as food gets easily spoilt. Summer favourite foods like salads and curds become a source of infection if not kept at the right temperature.
Storing the food at the right temperature plays a great role. Frozen and ready-to-eat foods may satisfy the taste buds but they weigh badly on the nutrition level. They are high on fats and that’s how they are cooked and stored. Also, the vitamins get ruined in the cooking and preservation process.
Need more awareness
When it comes to eating healthy, we should follow nature-generated food. Try to pick more fresh and seasonal fruits and vegetables. Eating freshly cooked food, however, remains the timeless trick to stay healthy.
