Five foods that are wrongly considered unhealthy: this list will surprise you
Every day we all consume different, healthy and unhealthy products. But, it is worth noting that very often even healthy products, for various reasons are classified as unhealthy, such as meat, chocolate, bread.
1. Red meat
They are not the healthiest type of food, and their consumption should be limited, experts say. However, it is not thought that they should be completely eliminated from your diet unless you are "sitting" on a plant-based diet.
According to experts, it is the consumption of red meat that is associated with the risk of coronary heart disease, a 2012 study showed that much depends on the amount of sodium and how it is processed. It is also a source of protein, iron, and vitamin B12.
2. Peanut paste
This product is quite caloric, but you should not avoid it, and you should pay attention to the composition. Since many brands add a lot of hydrogenated oils and sugar in peanut butter, which actually reduces its nutritional qualities. Nutritionists point out that it is necessary and possible to eat it, but it is necessary to read the composition, namely there should be only 2 ingredients - peanuts and salt.
3. White bread
Ordinary white, store-bought bread, according to experts, has no nutritional value. It consists of white flour and additives. But, you should know that homemade wheat bread can be a much healthier version of store-bought bread. Because when making homemade bread, you can control the ingredients yourself and not worry about additives that are used industrially to extend the shelf life of the product.
This is a very caloric and fatty product, since its base is almost always puff pastry and toppings of sausage, cheese, sausages, and ketchup. But it is worth noting that homemade pizza can be made from pita bread, and for toppings use vegetables, spices and low-fat cheese.
Chocolate is a valuable product, but only if it is a product that consists of at least 70% cocoa. It is worth noting that dark chocolate is rich in polyphenols and has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that fight pathogenic free radicals.
