Many health and diet “gurus” love to demoralize processed foods as the root of all evil, but let’s be real just about every food one eats has been processed in one way or another.

We’ve been processing foods for thousand of years.

For example:

Vegetables being blanched and frozen to preserve freshness and nutritional value.

Seeds being pressed into oil and milk being pasteurized to kill certain bacteria.

On the hand, there are processing strategies that can be harmful to our health like;

Increasing shelf life by adding trans fat and other preservatives;

Adding taste by adding large amounts of salt, sugar, and fat;

Preserving. meats by smoking, during, salting, and adding preservatives.

You don’t need to completely eliminate overly processed foods. You just need to limit them.

Get the majority of your daily calories from relatively unprocessed foods and you’ll be fine.
