The number of diseases and infections are increasing day by day. The quality of food we get at restaurants is pathetically ill. We came across a number of reported incidents where restaurants and cafes are being sealed by the food authorities just because of the low quality food they are providing to their customers is very low and non hygienic atmosphere of their kitchen and cooking area is. Ordering healthy snacks from outside and going out on weekends and with friends and family for dinners and junking is not a sin but continuously eating bad food is injurious to health. There are a number of well reputed cafes who are being on top of the list of the places who are producing bad quality of food. With the world advancing like this, I’m afraid all we’d be eating in a few decades’ time will be chemical in different shapes and forms.
Just take a look around yourself and observe; the crops are growing thrice as faster as they did naturally in the past; even the poultry is taking less than 2 weeks to grow to full size; everything we eat or drink comes in a packing all processed and polished. How is that happening? There is one answer to all these miraculous productions; Science and chemicals. There is probably not even a single thing in our daily lives that can stand without the involvement of chemicals. Is it still hard to answer the question of why we’re unhealthy? The habit of eating bakery items in snack time is very common not in children but in adults too. one is always craving for pastries, cakes and other stuff to enjoy with tea or coffee in the evening.
Eating such things is not wrong but its better to bake them a home. The cakes and pastries have preservatives in them that are very dangerous for our health. These chemicals make them look fresh but actually they are not. Moreover the packaging materials also contains chemical in them which are even more injurious.
All of us are social media for different purposes and we can see a lot of people who are sharing their cooking styles and healthy snacks recipes that are super easy and quick and even healthy too. you would come across a lot of profiles who are providing healthy snacking recipes. Eating healthy is a lifestyle not a thing that can be done in a day or two. You need to shift to healthy and home made food slowly. For that the only thing you need to do is to be passionate to cook. Nothing can stop you to bake and cook at home even better than the bakeries and restaurants. You just need to follow some recipe channels and start cooking. Technology has made it super easy to know everything from cooking to makeup, everything.
