AN INSIGHT INTO THE VARIOUS TYPES OF FOOD AND WHICH IS MORE FAVOURABLE TO OUR BODY SYSTEM

When talking about food, it's of high Important that we hold such discussion with high esteem and as well thoroughly verify what we take into our body system, because the kind of food we consume as the capacity to either make or mar our body system, by nourishing/boosting our system or inflicting damage on them.

So that being said, I'll like to tell you what prompted this write-up, which is this edition of the feature topic of the @hive-learners Community, we were ask to discuss about the two types of food we do eat, there importances and which we prefer between both, so without further ado, come along, as I take you through my opinion.

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well. - Virginia Woolf

What the above quote by Virginia Woolf is saying is that, in as much as we want to enjoy and live life to the fullest, then food Important can never we sideline out of the equation, Because once it's out of it, then you've pave way for wariness and lagging that'll disrupt your dreams, aspiration and might even lead to your death.

So what are the kind of food under scrutiny, what are there Importance and side effect?

Today the following will be going under my surgical knife for better understanding;

  • Processed Food
  • Natural Food

PROCESSED FOODS

Personally, I believe processed foods, are food that as good through different procedure and chemical addictions, in other for them to become available to the general public at every given time, with little or no need for extra preparation before such is been consumed, so in other word, what I'm saying is that processed food can be tag to be the regular food we address as fast food in our present world, example of which are bread, noodles, and sealed foods like sweet corn, tomatoes paste, sardines etc...

These forms of food has alot of Importance to mankind, and below are some of such;

  • They are sweet and also nourish our body system.
  • They are easy to come by.
  • They easy to prepare, since most as been prepared from factory.

The above list are great, but then it also has it side effects to us, and they are;

  • The chemical used in preserving then can cause have different effects on us and could even lead to diseases like cancer.
  • Other effect of the chemicals are obesity or high blood pressure.

NATURAL FOODS

In my opinion, I believe natural foods are the gift of nature we were blessed with, and they're in form of fruits, crops and vegetables, these kind of stuff is very important to all human as they go a long way in aiding our growth, health, immune system and much more.

Some of it other important are;

  • Natural medicine that heals different illness and diseases.
  • Natural skincare treatment, via the nutrients embedded in them, they literally make the skin glow.
  • They are more cheaper and could even be grown by oneself, with less need for additions of chemical and co.

With that being said, it's worthy of note that natural foods also have it side effects, which are;

  • Stomach upset due to excessive gas in those natural food.
  • Intoxication, this can be sighted for example, when using nature herbs for treatment, we all know unlike tablet, that is been prescribed, herbs amount that will be excessive to our body system can't really be decide.

MY OPINION

So in between both, if I'm to be in a position to advice on which to go for between both, then I'll go with natural foods, Because it's a natural healer that does more good than harm to our body system.

Thanks so much for checking out my blog post, have a blessed and productive day.

Eating natural foods is always the preferred way to go as they contain better nutrients, less chemicals, helps support the local farmers, et cetera.

Unfortunately not all countries and areas are able to purchase fresh foods to consume due to poverty, living as refugees, homelessness, severe weather conditions and other reasons beyond their control. 🔊🆘️🌪🌀🌩🔥

It's always a good idea to have a supply of canned and dry food, dry legumes, pasta noodles, seeds and nuts, bottled waters, and emergency food on hand in case of emergencies and for the reasons just mentioned.

Excellent post! @vickoly 🙌

Greetings @ninahaskin

You've taken this to a whole new level, and it's been an eye opener, of a truth like you said, not all nations as the appropriate soil, weather conditions to grow these foods, so importing of such which as gone through some process won't be a bad choice, in order for them to get the a substantial meal.

Also in the cases of the refugees too, these can be put into consideration as well, that even though the effect of these foods are known, the major human survival norms which is food, shouldn't be swept aside in the bid to sticking with natural foods alone.

I really appreciate you stopping by and sharing your thoughts, it's a previlege to draw from your well of wisdom.

Have a blessed day.

The importance of natural foods cannot be overemphasized but we consume more of processed foods.

Processed foods are not as bad as we think they are, because they were gotten from our natural foods. The only reason why it's harmful to us is because we don't know how to regulate our intake of them.

Thanks for stopping by, you've said well, but then I'll like to come in by letting you know that preservative used on processesd are very harmful to us, the same with other chemicals used in the processing stages.

Another are the heat, smoke and other harmful components that attack to it during the process of production.

But I'm not totally condemning it, Because I also state it Importance above.

And in the end moderation is what matters in all we eat and do.

Have a great day.

You're on point brother, natural foods are indeed great and can't be compared, but our world today, we're more surrounded by processesd foods, but in as much as we take them, we should do it moderately.

That quote is deeper thsn one can really think of. Basically, its saying that food can never be sidelined in life, hence its called a basic need.
Both kinds of food has its pros and cons. And in this age, we can not do without the two. Good job here, man!

While natural food can be cheap and easy to prepare, they usually take quite a lot of time. And then, especially in this our country, natural food is becoming way more expensive than processed. All has its own perks, I guess.
Thank you for sharing this with us.

You're very correct. Refined/processed food posses more health challenges than natural foods. Before the surge of these processed foods,people lived more healthy lives. But these days, alot of health problems associated with what people eat expecially processed foods
