1. Real Foods Are Full of Nutrients
Unprocessed foods tend to contain higher amounts of vitamins and minerals, making them much more beneficial to your daily nutritional needs. One example listed by Spritzler is vitamin C: 1 cup of either red bell peppers, broccoli, or sliced oranges will provide you with 100 percent of your recommended daily intake for vitamin C.
2. Real Food Is Low In Sugar
In addition to being high in vitamins and minerals, whole foods are also lower in sugar than unprocessed foods. Eating too many sugary foods can lead to a number of different health-related problems, such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease. For more info on that, you can check out one of our other videos: “8 Warning Signs That You Are Eating Too Much Sugar”.
3. Real Food Is Good For Your Heart
Many types of whole and unprocessed foods are rich in antioxidants and other nutrients such as magnesium and healthy fats, which can help combat against the risk of heart disease. Unprocessed foods are also believed to help reduce inflammation, which is another leading factor when it comes to heart disease.
4. Real Food Is Environmentally Friendly
Or at the very least, more so than processed foods. Sustainable agricultural techniques based on growing real and unprocessed foods may help improve the planet’s overall health by reducing energy needs and decreasing the amount of non-biodegradable waste that is created by humans.I guess you could call this “food for thought”.
5. Real Food Is High In Fiber
Fiber is an important staple of any healthy diet, as it helps with our digestion and metabolism, and also helps us feel full to prevent us from overeating. While you can get additional fiber through supplements or through processed foods that have fiber added to them, unprocessed whole foods such as chia seeds, blackberries, legumes, avocados and flaxseeds are still the best source of fiber available.
6. Real Food Helps Control Blood Sugar
A healthy diet that incorporates fibrous plants and unprocessed animal foods can help keep your blood sugar at manageable levels, especially for people who either have or may be at risk of developing diabetes. Studies have indicated that people who subscribe to the paleolithic diet may see a reduction in blood sugar levels as huge as 26 percent!
7. Real Food Is Good For Your Skin
Unprocessed foods such as avocados and dark chocolate have been shown to help strengthen your skin and protect it against sun damage. In addition to that, studies have also suggested that a diet that’s rich in vegetables, fish, legumes and olive oil can help prevent your skin from wrinkling or losing its elasticity as you get older.
8. Real Food Lowers Triglycerides
Triglycerides are a type of fat found in your blood that are strongly influenced by your food intake.By eating whole and unprocessed foods such as fish, meats, vegetables and nuts, you can help manage your body’s triglycerides and keep them at healthier levels.
