Why should I avoid processed foods?
Deb Kennedy, PhD, Nutrition & Dietetics, answeredThe purpose of food is to nourish you. With today's food supply, what we eat can either take us in the direction of health or away from it. Processed foods are amateurs and imposters compared to the real thing: food straight from nature.
What are fake foods?
Stefanie Sacks, MS, Nutrition & Dietetics, answeredFake foods are highly processed foods including foods that mimic real food (like "fake meat"). Ideally it's best to consume foods that are whole (and real). But given that many need to call on highly processed foods as a part of their daily diet, it is best to choose wisely, calling on items that have no more than 5-7 ingredients and those that you understand.
