I guess nobody wonders why do we need food. Why talk about nutrition? Not so many people have interested in what it is in their tasty sandwich. Most important for us that it would be delicious, crunchy, fulfilling. It does not matter, that pretty soon we look for snacks, dream what will be at the dinner today. In different cultures, people eat at different times. In most advanced countries, people do not have a chance to eat, to have one hour at least to enjoy and savor that it is on their plate.
Our Habits and Preferences
It is a good saying: a pattern is not needed. Usually, we stick that is work for us at this time. We fulfill our stomachs with food which sometimes is good for our taste buds, but not for our health. Why? Did you try to read what it is on labels? I do not think so because it is not easy to understand what it means. These long descriptions of chemical ingredients are confusing. Usually, we do not have time to translate these names into our language. Not everybody is a chemist. Do you know what it means Aspartame or Saccharin, Mycoprotein or food dyes? I looked at what do we have in our processed foods; my admiration for Nature’s gifts increased a few times. What do you prefer to eat? What is tasty, but you do not know from where it came? Maybe is better food, which nourishes our bodies and minds in the same way? If you want to stay well informed, I recommend an organization, which works in the best interests of public health.

Why Do We Choose Food
Being alert of what we eat can help us to stay in good shape long years ahead. I think that you heard that your skin looks better if you eat a lot of fresh vegetables, fruits and sleep well. It is the same with all our organs and body systems. Raw food is full of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. They help our immune system stay healthy and protect us from various intruders. The right diet helps us to keep in shape physically and mentally.
Team of Aids
There so much information about ways to be fit, a lot of types of exercises, advice on how to lose weight. I wonder why not to start from the beginning when our plate is on the table, or we do stop to buy fast food. I mentioned before it is excellent to know what we put in our mouth unless we eat as ancient Romans. They tasted great meals consisting of meat, vegetables, and fruits. Of course, their empire ended severely, but they knew how to enjoy life. Look what they created and left after themselves? Ancient Greeks left high culture for us. I do not think that they savored Twinkies.
Going back to nowadays, let’s take a look at why fresh food is so outstanding.
Why Talk about Nutrition
They are vital nutrients and organic compounds. Many of the nutrients not made by the body. We obtain them from our diet. Vitamins work with enzymes ensuring that all body activities would be in order and would go in the right way. If you lack just one vitamin, it can cause a lot of problems. Vitamins in the same way as enzymes are destroyed by high temperatures, cooking or steaming log time. Why blending fruits or vegetables are good for us. All food is divided into small particles. Vital nutrients are here for the lovely smoothie. It is easy to swallow, just keeping a few seconds in your mouth, letting ferments reach it and prepare for digestion in the stomach. Especially for people, who do not have so many teeth or feel weak, the blending is a simple way to deliver all living nutrients to our bodies.
Enzymes are protein molecules. They are essential for our survival. Enzymes are involved in chemical reactions acting as catalysts. It is a pity when they are fragile, and they lose all their abilities when the temperature reaches more at 118 degrees Fahrenheit.
They required for building bones, blood, muscles, and healthy nerve. Our bodies are out the balance when we lack minerals. Minerals work best when they are in chelated form. It means that they bonded to amino acids for more natural assimilation. The cooking breaks these bonds; the blending keeps intact all minerals. Of course, we can use supplements. Anyway, what is made by Nature cannot be duplicated in the laboratory. It can be close, but not the same. Why talk about nutrition? It is vitally essential for our bodies what type of food do we get. Our wellbeing depends on it.
