If you want overall better health for yourself and your loved ones, all you have to do is just say no to processed foods. It is easier than you might think, instead of buying a donut in a plastic wrap for a snack, exchange it for an apple or orange and you’re one step closer to better physical and mental health.
These foods called processed foods are very easy to spot they are all in some kind of man-made packaging, either paper, plastic or boxed. They are very unhealthy and are costing you your good health in the long run.
For overall better health the best foods to eat are natural. All natural foods come in their own packaging, such as apples, oranges, bananas, and eggs are to name a few. Just think natural foods are foods that have not been processed by man at all.
Natural foods are foods that you can pick off of a tree such as apples and avocados or a plant such as berries and bananas, and foods that are grown in the ground that you have to dig up from the earth such as carrots and potatoes.
The best natural foods are grown organically which in essence means free of pesticides and other man-made chemicals. These fruits and vegetables do cost a little more to buy if you don’t grow your own but the benefits to your health are numerous.
Remember that old saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!” This is true to an extent, eating healthy fresh fruits and vegetables daily will help anyone stay healthier for longer periods of time. When you eat something that is processed you are eating not just the food itself but also everything man has put in it or on it while growing it such as pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones, etc.
