Choosing the healthy food

Choosing the healthy food can be very easy if you follow guidelines. Always use fresh and natural whole foods.

Choosing healthy food is simple if you just remember a few guidelines. First, select fresh, unprocessed whole foods. Go for natural foods over commercially produced foods. Organic foods are the healthiest and purest foods. They are not infected by pesticides. They generally have a higher nutritional content.

Organic foods are known as natural foods. But natural does not mean that it is organic. There is no proper definition of natural food. So the food producers often call anything natural even if it is natural or not.

When you are buying packaged food, remember to read the label. Even though the package may say "healthy," "all natural," "low fat" or any other statements implying that the product is healthy, it may still be unhealthy and contain harmful ingredients. The only way you will know for sure is if you read the list of ingredients. The Nutrition Facts on the label tells you how much protein, carbohydrate, sugars, fats and calories are in the product. It doesn't tell you anything about the chemical additives in the product that cause serious illness or adverse reactions, such as aspartame, BHA, BHT, FD&C colors, MSG, BVO, nitrites and nitrates, Olean or Olestra, and sulfites to name just a few.
