3 reasons why you should start eating fresh products

António Câmara | 8th February 2024

1. Improve your diet with fresher products

Opting for fresh produce instead of processed food is a giant step towards improving your health. Fresh produce is packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that play a vital role in our health. They help strengthen the immune system, improve skin health and even reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

By incorporating more fresh food into your diet, you’re not only investing in your long-term health, but you’re also taking an important step towards a healthier and happier life.

2. Products with a real taste

Have you ever compared the flavour of a freshly picked tomato with that of a tinned tomato? The difference is abysmal! Fresh produce offers an authentic, rich flavour that you simply can’t find in processed products.

  • Try making a salad with fresh vegetables and you’ll notice the explosion of flavours.
  • By cooking with fresh ingredients, you’re ensuring that the flavour of your food is as natural and delicious as possible.

By opting for fresh produce, you’re making a conscious choice for your health. As mentioned in an Easyslim Diet article, one of the main arguments against processed foods is that they often have fewer nutrients compared to fresh, unprocessed foods. This is a compelling reason to make the change today!

3. Choosing fresh products has a positive impact on the environment

By choosing fresh products over processed ones, you’re taking a big step towards a healthier planet. The production of processed food consumes more energy, water and natural resources, contributing significantly to pollution and the depletion of natural resources. On the other hand, fresh produce, especially when it comes from local agriculture, has a much smaller ecological footprint.

  • Reduce the use of packaging
  • Reduce long-distance transportation
  • Support sustainable agriculture

By choosing fresh food, you’re not only benefiting your health, but also contributing to a greener, more sustainable future. Remember, every food choice counts in the fight against climate change.
