Give processed foods the back seat

Processed foods may contain loads of preservatives, salt or sugar and other potentially harmful chemical additives. They usually contain flavorants too. You may find that the nutritional value may not be as high as you would have hoped for.

Consume whole, natural foods instead. These foods will be packed with valuable vitamins and mineral substances that are good for the body. You will gain far more nutritional value from them, as opposed to the processed foods.
