Nutritional science has gone a long way towards resolving the dietary deficiencies we may face in everyday life. However, nothing can really replace real and natural food. In the last hundred years we accepted food that is processed as a convenience, but this kind of food has many drawbacks. Food that is natural has nutrients that we need and its sugar levels are generally low. Even more importantly, they are good for the health of our heart and other vital organs.
- Real food is usually lower in sugar and higher in fiber than processed food.
- While it may be cheaper to buy processed food, it costs more in the long run when managing chronic illnesses is factored in.
- Aside from its health benefits, unprocessed is delicious and buying it can support local farmers.
