Some food is better for you than others. If you go to Mcdonald's and get a meal, it will be bad compared to a simple meal of chicken and rice. Most people are aware of the healthy foods in society, but they also know what is considered unhealthiest. They are making healthy food bad.
An interesting idea is that all food can be bad. This might seem strange to some of you, but it is the truth. Many of you are guilty of doing things that turn healthy meals into bad ones. The meals are not as healthy as they could be.
How is this possible? What happens to healthy food? There are a lot of things that people do. You have to look at these things and make sure you don't do them again.
Adding too much fat and oil.
This is a problem that affects a lot of foods.
People add too much dressing to salads. A bowl of vegetables is always going to be good for you. Wrong. If you put it in oil or mayonnaise, the calories will go up. Some salads contain more calories than a lot of fast food. One of their salads had more calories and fat in it than a meal from a fast food restaurant.
Adding too much salt.
If you add too much salt to a dish, it will be bad. Your body needs salt to help with various processes, but that doesn't mean you should go crazy with the salt. Adding a sprinkle to your food will bring out the flavor, but you should leave things alone. Adding more salt to something already salted is the worst thing you can do.
For instance, if you cook a plate of pasta with tomato sauce, you have a healthy meal. However, if you pile the sauce full of salt, overly salt the pasta in the water, and then add more salt when the dish is finished, you’ve gone overboard! Too much salt is linked to heart problems and health issues, so use it sparingly.
Eating Too Much Of Something
This is definitely the thing that 99.9% of people are guilty of. When you hear that a food is healthy, your brain instantly thinks that you should eat lots of it. Now, this isn’t always a bad thing. For instance, five portions of fruit and veg a day will never be bad for you. The issue stems from when you literally start overloading your plate and meals with something that seems healthy, but will quickly become unhealthy if consumed excessively.
The humbleavocado is the best culprit.
600 calories is the number of calories you have already eaten if you start eating two or three avocados a day.
You are Blending it up.
This only refers to fruit and veg.
Experts recommend you have 150ml maximum of fruit juice per day. If you blend fruit and veg to make drinks, don't think they're still healthy. If you drink more than 150ml per day, you are asking for a lot of sugar related problems.
You are buying ready-made meals.
You can either pop in the oven or microwave a section of ready-made meals at every grocery store.
Ready-made meals tend to be packed full of salt and Preservatives.
You are eating healthy food.
A bit of a struggle to wrap your head around this, but it basically means that you are adding a lot of bad things to your meals. You might have a nice salad, but you also have two giant hamburgers. The salad becomes pointless as the meal becomes less healthy.
People often have things like fruit with other things that aren't healthy.
You are using an unhealthier cooking method.
You need to think about your cooking method when you return to the starting point. Frying things in oil is one of the least preferred cooking techniques. Frying stuff is necessary when you make sauces and lots of dishes.
It might be a good idea to cook chicken in the oven. Different cooking methods will make the food healthier. If you cook food at high temperatures, it will become less healthy. It isn't as healthy as it could be.
How many of these things are you guilty of? At some point in your life, there will be at least one or two points on this list. You can stop making healthy food bad by learning from past mistakes. If you want to keep your meals healthy, avoid making the following mistakes.
1. fry something in loads of oil
