SCRAP that CRAP and Embrace Real Food

As we all know, crap refers to anything useless. Here, discussing crap as food, they could be regarded to as junks.
We also know that junk food is unhealthy. Poor nutrition is related to heart problems, high blood pressure, and a host of other health ailments


Anyone in his/her normal state of mind should know that these foods (without any worth) should not be consumed. They are craps and are really of no use. But ignorance as they say is a choice. We actually get to consume foods we know nothing about. Neglecting the famous quote, GIGO, “Garbage In, Garbage Out”, and forgetting that it is whatever we take in to our body that it works with and then produces.

For better or for worse (mostly worse), junk food is now available all over the world. We see it most everywhere we go; in grocery and convenience stores, fast-food restaurants, on television — usually looking very appealing, but seriously, it is still CRAP.

We take in these junks unknowingly; we don’t know their health benefits (that is if there is at all) and the health risks associated with them.

Often at times, at parties, meetings or during lunch at work, due to the fact that we don’t have a choice or we are short of time, we quickly grasp that ASAP snack or meal that we can lay our hands upon.


Embrace Real Foods
We should have it in mind that we are what we eat. Nothing seems better than preparing that your favourite dish and having all of it to yourself (all its nutrients); that dope chicken and fries, the ever steaming porridge yam (asaro), your traditional soup, or that mouthwatering chicken soup, and the likes of them.

Though a few challenges involved are time, cost, and convenience. For many people, making food is intensive when focusing on pure, natural items. Sprouting grains, soaking dry beans, dehydrating produce, and blending together nut and seed butters and milks takes time and planning, which are hard to come by when you lead a busy life.
You know what you are putting into your body. Eating real food that you make yourself allows you to control the amount of additives like sugar and salt that goes into your food.

Even though you do lose a small amount of nutrients when you cook certain foods, for the most part eating real food lets you get the nutritional benefits from what you eat. The vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and all of the other good stuff that keeps your immune system healthy and helps you feel and look your best stays intact when you eat real food so you’re not just satisfied (unlike when you eat empty calories in junk food) but you’re also healthier overall.
For every meal we consume, we should ensure it that it can be referred to as balanced diet. We should endeavor to add foods rich in vitamins and minerals and other essential nutrients that would aid in growth, development, body balancing and building of worn out tissues. We should also try to engage in proper meal planning to help see that we achieve our required nutrients from every meal.

Real food is the key to good health, these CRAP is not. End of Story.
