With fast food restaurants on every corner and preserved meals easily available in the freezer, obesity and chronic disease rates are higher than ever. Fast foods and processed meals are generally sorely lacking in fresh fruits, vegetables, fiber, and whole grains that contain vital nutrients essential to healthy living. Eating "clean" eliminates extra additives that can be dangerous to your health. Making homemade food gives you control, because you know exactly what's in your food.
Back when breakfast was the catch of the day, the human diet was rich in whole, unprocessed foods. Some researchers say after industrialization the human diet has changed at such a high rate that humans have not yet adapted to the foods they are now consuming. The human diet has changed in seven major levels.
Eliminating refined foods from your diet will dramatically decrease the likelihood of developing chronic diseases. Replacing processed food with whole, homemade meals is the first step to adopting a healthier lifestyle.
By making homemade you eliminate extra additives, preservatives, sugar, salt and fats that are added to processed foods to enhance texture, flavor or color appeal. Many of these additives can be dangerous to your health.
Common food additives also come in the form of chemicals and preservatives. Experience the flavor and texture of fresh foods rather than the additives used to make preserved foods look and taste fresh.
Making homemade helps to keep track of what kind of ingredients and how much of them you are adding to your foods. Being aware of and eliminate the extra junk from your food is a great benefit of eating homemade.
Processed foods are blamed for the high rates of chronic disease, such as diabetes and heart disease. In order to decrease your risk it is imperative to adopt a lifestyle of healthy, clean eating and exercise. Creating homemade foods at home gives you the power to eliminate the harmful additives commonly found in processed foods. Making homemade generates an environment for health and life to flourish.
