In most cases, processed foods aren’t really food at all. They are manufactured ‘food’ items that are packed with chemicals, synthetic vitamins, artificial colors, and other unhealthy additives. These foods do not provide the same beneficial nutrients as fresh, whole foods. More research needs to be conducted, however, it’s believed that genetically modified organisms (GMO) may threaten human health. Since they’re cheaper to produce, GMO crops are generally used to produce a wide range of processed meals and snacks.

Although processed foods tend to be convenient, they produce poor eating habits. Once a person is into the routine of making meals from scratch, it is soon realized it is not as time-consuming as many believe. There are plenty of quick and easy recipes available, helping you and your family eat better. Swap those frozen dinners for a more nutrient-rich meal plan.
