We are very fortunate to live in a society where we can grab a hot prepared meal at any time, almost anywhere for a good price. There are fast food options on every busy corner, convenience stores on almost every city block, and even our grocery stores serve prepared hot food these days. What a beautiful thing…
But Wait….IS IT?
Truth be told, this fast and convenient option may come with a fair bit of health compromises. When we give up preparing our own food from scratch, we risk filling up on more processed foods which contain food additives that are simply not healthy.
In order for convenience foods to be prepared in mass quantities, there are typically more inexpensive and highly processed ingredients added for packaging and storing – all to maintain freshness. (And fresh makes us feel as if we are eating fresh prepared food, right?).
But, this is not a new concept. Most of the general population realize that processed foods are not the best option when it comes to health. So why do we consume so much of it?
TIME. Of course we are a society that depends on time saving any way we can take it. So our diet suffers.
