How regularly do you eat fresh foods?

How often do you consume fresh foods – daily, weekly or perhaps not as often as you should? Processed foods, including those that contain large amounts of salt and/or sugar, tend to contain preservatives and other additives that help to retain shelf life. They often lack the level of nutrition that you get from fresh foods.

Try to consume as much fresh food as possible and cut down on the processed- and highly refined ones. You will enjoy the taste, freshness and nutrition it will provide, together with a whole host of health benefits.
