We put a lot of packaged foods in our carts in supermarkets. They have words like nutritional’, healthy’ and fresh’ labeled on their packets. But are they? We become oblivious to the fact that they are not fresh and buy them because it is convenient. Today, most people are always in a hurry and lead busy lives. They do not have much time to cook. Hence, they go for processed and packaged food rather than meals cooked with fresh ingredients. Eating fresh food is a necessity to stay healthy. The benefits of eating fresh fruits and vegetables are far more than consuming them in the form of canned juices. To have a balanced diet, you must incorporate fresh vegetables, fruits and other fresh ingredients of high nutritional value in your diet. Eating fresh food is an important part of a healthy diet. The health benefits of fresh food are manifold.
Some of them can be summed as
The locally grown vegetables and fruits are higher in nutritional value than those that are picked and made to sit for some time. Not that they are less nutritious, but over the time, the nutritional value starts diminishing because of various factors like exposure to air, temperature changes, artificial lights, etc. When the vegetables are picked, the vitamins in them start to deteriorate. The longer the food is made to sit, the more it loses its nutrients. They still provide you a lot of nutrients, but it is very less compared to the freshly picked vegetables. The produce loses its nutritional value over time. Hence they must be consumed as quick as they can.
Boosts the immune system
To keep the immune system functioning efficiency, we need all kinds of nutrients in our food. Deficiency in any nutrient may impair the immune system. Frozen food are deficient in nutrients because freezing decreases the vitamins and minerals in the food. Therefore, we need to eat fresh food to avoid the deficiency of nutrients. When we eat fresh food, the nutritional value is not lost, and these nutrients help in regulating our vascular functions, thus boosting up the immune system.
Doctors and nutritionists advise us to drink sufficient amount of water per day to keep ourselves hydrated. Eating fresh food and vegetables is beneficial because they keep us hydrated. Fresh stock of fruits and vegetables have a high water content which is enough to keep you hydrated for a long time.
Protection from chemicals and preservatives
The canned, frozen and packaged food are enriched with preservatives and chemicals to increase their shelf life. Many artificial flavors and sugars are added to them and consuming them can create problems with the digestive system because the digestive system cannot digest the unknown chemicals easily. Most frozen foods have gluten added in them to increase the shelf life, which is harmful as it sticks to our intestine and decreases the rate of absorption of nutrients in our body. Therefore, we must avoid these foods and go for fresh food only. We must always give preference to nutrition before convenience. Having fresh foods can make up for the low amount of water, enzymes, and nutrients in our body. Therefore, we must include more and more fresh foods in our diet and minimize the consumption of packaged food.
It is rightly said that health is wealth. To achieve a healthy lifestyle, one needs to eat right. Eating right is one of the smartest decisions one can ever make because there are a plethora of benefits you can get from it. Having a balanced and adequate diet is the first and the most important step to keep yourself healthy. Not only does it keep you healthy but also reduces your future health expenditures. Committing to a healthy diet can be challenging, but once you do it, you stride towards a happy life.
There are numerous benefits of a healthy diet. Some of them can enumerate as:
Maintenance as well as loss of weight
Weight control or loss is one of the common reasons why people opt for dieting. A balanced diet helps you to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight by providing you with the proteins that your body require. You intake these proteins in the form of grains, vegetables, and fruits. These proteins replace the fatty and high-calorie food and keep you satiated for a longer time than foods with high sugar and fats. Being full for a longer time keeps your calorie range fixed and you do not exceed it, thus keeping your weight control.
To keep the functioning of your immune system efficient, you must start having a healthy diet, full of all possible nutrients. Deficiencies in any nutrient like vitamins and minerals can weaken the immune system. The immune system depends on the blood flow. A balanced diet regulates the vascular functions, thus affecting the blood flow and the immune system. The nutrients in the balanced diet are important for the germ-fighting cells in the body to keep functioning. Having a balanced diet can help you maintain a strong immune system and keep your body safe from diseases.
A balanced diet is one of the ways to reduce the chances of cardiovascular diseases. Consuming high-fat food can cause an increase in your cholesterol level, thus building up plaque in your arteries. This eventually leads to heart attacks. Weight and blood pressure are two major causes of heart problems. Both of them can be regulated by having a diet full of vitamins, fiber, and fewer calories.
To increase your productivity, you need to have the right proportions of all the nutrients in your diet. Having a balanced meal gives you sufficient energy to keep you active for the whole day. Healthy carbohydrates like fruits, vegetables, and grains take the time to digest and keep your blood sugar and insulin levels proper to supply you with energy whenever required. Proteins in meat, fish, and eggs are also energy suppliers.
A healthy diet not only improves health but also enhances your mood by reducing stress. Omega 3 fatty acids and black tea help in reducing cortisol, a stress hormone and help you recover from a stressful event faster. Vitamin C and minerals such as magnesium found in nuts also help in reducing stress. Eating a protein-rich diet also helps in maintaining a low cortisol level.
