It might be possible that in the latest months you have seen it on social media or even might heard people talking about it, but what exactly is realfooding ?
Have your heard about Realfooding? What exactly is realfood? It is not a diet, it is a very successful becoming movement whose goal is to say “NO to the ultra processed foods and “YES” to real food.
When talking about realfooding or real food, we refer to those foods that come directly or almost directly from nature. Foods such as vegetables, fruits, seeds, legumes, fish, eggs, meat, whole grains, unrefined oils, spices, nuts … Why “almost”? Because pasta, for example, is a food that does not come directly from nature, but is made out of flour, which is obtained from grinding cereals. This involves food processing, despite being a healthy processing. The same goes for dairy. Milk itself comes directly from nature, but it is necessary to be treated in order to be consumed and to avoid infections.
In recent decades, the food industry has been modifying real foods to meet the needs of today’s consumers and because of these processing methods, some foods reduced their original nutrients and their quality.
The movement of Realfood or Realfooding is nothing more than a claim towards a natural diet, without processed or poor quality food, to raise public awareness and of course, to improve health.
