Is it healthy or not healthy? With so much information out there, it can be confusing to decipher the real truth. The realm of nutrition is constantly evolving and there are a lot of food myths. Fear not, we are here to help you straighten the facts and get you started on eating healthy for real.
1. Nuts are Fatty
Junk foods like chips have added preservative, high sodium and trans fat which are not really needed by the body. It is high in calories, but low on nutrition. On the other hand, nuts are high in calories and high in nutrition as well. They contain all the good stuff – proteins, vitamins, minerals, fiber and healthy fats.
When consumed in small quantities in between your meals, nuts can even aid you in weight loss by beating your hunger pangs which ultimately leads you to lesser binging and healthier eating. So, grab your almonds, pistachio and other nuts from Tassyam’s Dry Fruits exclusive selection and go nuts!
2. Low or No Carb Diets are the Best
The misconception that the fewer carbs you eat, the healthier you are holds true only if you heavily consume refined carbohydrates like white bread, pastries, processed food. Eliminating carbs altogether means you will miss out on fuel, fiber and essential nutrition that provides you energy.
So, stick to healthy alternatives and look for complex carbs found in whole wheat products, quinoa, millets, rolled oats and more. The trick is to choose your carbs wisely instead of avoiding them altogether.
