Welcome to Benefits of Eating
This day has arrived when we launch our new website www. benefitsofeating.com. We are very excited about the opportunity it gives us to promote healthy eating. The developers were inspired to make this work when searching for nutritional information of different foods we realised that there are actually no specific sites which are focused on giving simple information about it. Our background is nutrition and IT development which allowed us to build this site. We admit there is nothing fancy, just facts, gathered by us from different sources and analysed but it does the job! When making the first articles about benefits of eating apples and onions we were faced with a lot of misinformation. Therefore we tried to present our articles in way which informs but also doesn’t give you empty promises. Our intentions are informative not curing as we are not doctors. If you have a concern regarding your health or you already suffer from one and you want to help your body with eating good food, we would strongly advise you to pay a visit at a nutritionist or dietician.
“Benefits of eating” we thought sounded quite amusing but at the end of the day it is the hard reality that majority of people don’t think that eating is very important. We are not talking here about overweight or undernourished people but about the general public which tends to consume anything without thinking about the benefits or disadvantages. Eating itself is losing the tradition of being the activity in the day where you sit down and eat peacefully with you family a home cooked lunch. Knowing the ingredients of each meal of the day has become an illusion. Even though something says 100%beef, for example, doesn’t mean it is actual meat. Did you know that for example when preparing minced meet, lots of fat(from the animal) is being added or that peanut butter is made out of those peanuts which are too bad quality to put for sale as a snack? Nothing about this is said on the labels of course. Therefore this web project will also try to gather information not just about fresh ingredients but also about prepared foods. Hopefully this will make more people choose the most local and fresh produce to allow them to fully benefit from eating.
