Correct, healthy food for every day
Let's start with a discussion of the problem of lack of fiber in the diet.
Why is the diet of an ordinary person poor in fiber,If he often uses foods rich in fiber, such as greens, vegetables and fruits? At first, this seems to be a problem that is in the competence of nutrition professionals. This question was once asked by the nutrition teacher of the class of students at the university. Few guessed what the correct answer is. Despite the fact that the markets for vegetables and fruit of greenery have significantly expanded in recent decades, pointing to the encouraging growth in the consumption of these products, this growth was purely vegetative, nothing more than just a population growth reflex.
Take into account the following aspects:
In general, it is generally accepted that the populationTropical areas like tropical fruits and vegetables. A deeper analysis reveals, however, that the intake of these nutrient, fiber-rich elements is not enough. Trying a certain "vegetable" and enjoying a certain "fruit" every day is not enough to satisfy the dietary need for fiber.
In this case, the problem lies in the proportion. Adding the total amount of dietary fiber, consumed on average daily to residents of the tropical zone. We come to the conclusion that we are dealing with an inconsistently low consumption, which opens the way to the development of many chronic diseases. Conducting to degeneration, such as colon cancer, arteriosclerosis, etc. It is therefore necessary to consume far more fruits and vegetables than usual, combining them with the necessary amount of whole grains - not a very common habit.
Basically, fruits and vegetables are not the main ones, butSecondary elements of our diet, they participate in nutrition only as an element of "retouching", "filling" or "supplement", while they should occupy a much more important place in terms of quantity.
While it is recommended to consume about30g. Fangs a day, the traditional diet does not deliver and 10g.! Many do not consume 5g. Fiberglass in a day. If the consumption of vegetables and fruits has grown appropriately, and the habit of consuming whole grains has taken root, the content of fiber, vitamins and minerals in the diet would have increased significantly.
Information on the sale of vegetables, fruits and herbs is notReflects the actual consumption of these products. This was tested by our personal experience. Studies conducted in a large industrial food center showed that even if the purchase of vegetables and fruits has grown significantly, their consumption per person is small. People lose some of these products, leaving a lot of waste fruits and greens. Sweets and unhealthy drinks were in demand, and salads and fruits often remained untouched.
How does agro-toxins affect our health? This is also a very urgent issue in the modern world. Many, not knowing what they are talking about, say that consumption of vegetables or fruits is risky, because of the use of chemicals in agriculture. No doubt, this is a very serious problem that must be taken into account. But, if we examined the risks associated with other food products, such as meat and technologically processed foods, we would see that they are as serious, if not more serious, than the first. Reducing the consumption of greenery and replacing them with meat, well flavored products of animal origin is a conspicuous inconsistency, as these products are also spoiled by hormones and chemicals. The prevailing technologically processed food, in addition to chemical additives, supplies little fiber, too much salt, sugar and fats.
How to reduce risks? Risks can not be canceled, but they can be reduced by following a few practical tips:
- If possible, cultivate your own garden and vegetable garden using organic fertilizers.
- Look for good suppliers, from those who practice organic farming.
- Large and beautiful fruits and herbs - not always the most healthy. Small fruits, even those on which there are traces of bad weather, most often were not treated with pesticides.
- Very thoroughly wash fruit and greens. Put the bundles of leaves in the water with salt, then into the water with lemon, then into the water with salt and lemon. This procedure reduces the risk of infection by parasites.
- Clean fruits and vegetables from the peel. The poison often concentrates on the surface and in natural folds.
- Do not buy or use fruits and vegetables that are ripe under the influence of agro-toxic substances!
We have nothing to replace vegetables and greens in the diet. It is clear. However, it is necessary, as far as possible, to make efforts to solve the problem of toxic substances, without ceasing to use vegetables in food. The cessation of consumption of vegetables will bring great harm to the food.
