Not long time ago, the family gathered around a table at least once a day to eat together. But times have changed, society has changed and our approach on food has changed and not necessarily for the better!
If you think all the prepared food that we find at the supermarket or even delicatessens and gourmet food stores is more practical not only in terms of money, but also in time saving- you ignore a very important cost in terms of health and undermine the efforts made to live a healthy life. Certainly, you can also buy ready “Dietary and healthy dishes” but they will never be as healthy as the food prepared at home.
The ready and packaged food contains artificial colors, preservatives, flavorings, unnecessary sugars and other additives and most of the time it is prepared under objectionable cooking techniques: all that the vendors of such products want is to make the food “fast and irresistible” -so you can buy more!
The healthy alternative would be that you plan in advance the meals, buy the ingredients and dedicate a couple of hours for cooking, on weekends, for example. Prepare portions for the entire week and store them in the refrigerator or in the freezer so that it is ready when you return home.
Time and money can be valuable assets, but nothing is more important than your health. Eating out or buying prepared foods may only seem like the best decision for not having to think of everything, rather than having to plan a healthy meal? Wrong!
The food industry and catering agencies are known to work against any health objectives or weight-loss. They only follow their own interests which, unfortunately, do not coincide with those of consumers!
Here’s how: you know that generally people eat all that they have on the plate (regardless of the plate’s size), and as a result the restaurants serve huge portions, loaded with salt and trans fats to improve the taste. The additives make you thirsty (so you order a drink) or make you crave something sweet (why not order dessert?). There is a logic behind it: the business!
Of course you should avoid the extremes- there is nothing wrong in having a nice dinner at the restaurant from time to time but your daily habits should always have your best interests at heart.
