Changing eating habits

Nowadays we all tend to turn or meals into sheer cultural experiences. This is to say, we have let ourselves so much influenced by whatever is being posted on social media, that we no longer care about the amount of wasted food, as long as the food we consume looks in a certain way.

However, besides the waste that is being produced, there is also the issue of our diet that should be our main concern, as not always the food we see online is good for us.

MORE IDEAS FROM Is foodie culture destroying our ability to eat simply?

While we are so busy trying to copy whatever dish we see on TV, we are also slowly ending up losing the pleasure of cooking. Preparing food, especially the fancy one we see displayed on commercials, can be quite exhausting after an eight hours working day. Therefore, we come fast to the conclusion that we should order instead of wasting any minute on cooking ourselves. The real risk of this fast changing industry refers, nevertheless, to the fact that we tend to lose sight of what we should actually eat in order to be healthy. With all these recommendations coming from all sides, there is so little room for clarity on the topic.

'Clean eating' is the most widely followed diet

Clean eating can best be described as a holistic approach to finding foods that are fresher, less processed, and a higher quality. The broader idea comes from the belief that your health is the single most important investment you can make.

Observational studies have linked ultra-processed diets with poor health, weight gain, and early death. While there is no one right way, the clean eating approach prefer food in its natural state.

The art of eating

... is a question of psychology as much as nutrition. We have to find a way to want to eat what’s good for us.

We make frequent attempts – more or less half-hearted – to change what we eat, but almost no effort to change how we feel about food: how well we deal with hunger, how strongly attached we are to sugar, our emotions on being served a small portion.

Food affects the environment

Eating healthy food is almost always also the best for the environment.

Researchers say poor diets seriously harm people and the planet. Foods such as fruit, vegetables, beans, and whole grains are best for avoiding disease and protecting the climate and water resources, while red and processed meat cause the most ill health and pollution.
