Poison = Fast Food
Eat Convenience Food and Battle Addiction
Let's start off with explaining what constitutes processed food! NHS food specialists define processed food as any food which has been altered from its natural state in any way. This includes convenience and safety. EEK! So when you think about it you probably eat a heck of a lot more processed foods than you care to admit. So it's not just fast food, chocolate bars, muffins, pastries, chips, and soda. Understand just because a food is processed doesn't mean it's nasty. But it likely has added salt, fat, and sugar. For example, quick oats are processed but not unhealthy. Although they have been refined and aren't as healthy as steel cut oats. Keep in mind when you process something this means it's been canned, baked, dried, pasteurized, or frozen.
Here's a Few Tactics about Processed Foods You Probably Don't Want To Know
Huge Batch, Quickly Made, Cheaper, and Longer Shelf Life
Processed foods are made in huge quantities. They are made cheap, quickly, and have a long shelf life. All of which you can't have with an apple or broccoli au natural. This means in order to make these convenience foods you've got to start altering the state of them. Salt, sugar, and fat gets added to preserve them and keep them looking and tasting yummy. Trans fat, synthetic fat, is used instead of regular fat because it's cheaper! Studies have also shown this fake fat causes cancer. It's the worst fat yet manufacturers are still allowed to use it. It's all about money for them. Just think about it for a minute. How healthy can bread be that's perfectly fine sitting on the shelf for 3 weeks? Yikes!
