Because our body needs nutrients to function properly, it is important to nourish our body instead of just filling it. But what is filling and what is nutritious? We explain the difference below.
Filling refers to foods that quickly make us feel full, but are low in nutrients. These are processed foods that are high in calories, fat, and sugar, and low in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. White pasta, white bread, cornflakes, and cookies are some examples of processed food that fills us up. While these foods can give us a quick feeling of satiety, it is not long before we are hungry again because of the low nutritious value these foods have. Our body needs nutrients to stay healthy.
Nutritious refers to foods that contain many nutrients our body needs, such as fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals. Nutritious foods are unprocessed, also known as Whole Foods. Vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts and seeds are some prime examples of Whole Foods. They are essential for more healthy life years.
Therefore, we at TastyBasics have our reason to say: The Future is Whole Foods. We love whole foods.
We use Whole Foods as our base in bread, rusks, crackers, crispy muesli, mini-crackers and bars.
That makes our products not only tasty, but also extremely nutritious!
