I know most of the people here are a fan of restaurant food, but let me tell you the more you eat restaurant food, the more you are risking your life. Restaurant food is as unhealthy as alcohol consumption. I know you guys might think that how can restaurant food affect our health as it is good in taste. You might also think that restaurants use the same components for preparing the food as you use at your home. But it is not valid. In this article, I will be telling how unhealthy is restaurant food, and what is better short or long cooking of food.
How Unhealthy Is Restaurant Food
- Cooking components used by restaurant affects your guts in the same way as the alcohol does. Restaurant food is unhealthy because the ingredients used by restaurants are of poor quality.
- You do not know who is preparing the food. You either don’t know the food served to you is prepared hygienically or not.
- There are no nutrients in restaurant food. Tastemakers and oils used by the chef for preparing food in a restaurant add taste to your diet but also decrease the nutrition content. So it is better to prepare for yourself.
- Restaurant food is costly than homemade food, as restaurants charge you various taxes.
Cooking Food At Home
If you are in the habit of preparing food at home, then heads up to you as you are on the verge of becoming healthier. You are not only saving money by preparing food but also taking care of your health, and in this way, you can spend time with your family too, by eating food together with them.
Many times it happens that you leave your food for long or short cooking but that is unhealthy too. Long cooked food is not better than that of low cooked food or vice versa. Let me tell you why.
Long Cooking Vs. Short Cooking
- Many nutritionists believe that enzymes present in food get destroyed due to overheating. To retain the enzyme content in your diet, you should not cook your food at a temperature of 45 centigrade.
- When you cook your food for too long, vitamin B and C from your food gets depleted. Long cooking decreases the count of water-soluble vitamins in your diet. Although the fat-soluble has affected to a lesser extent, still it is an unhealthy process.
- Cooking increases the aroma and taste of the food and makes your food chewable. We all know that raw food is difficult to be digested by our digestive system. When your food is well cooked, then you will have no problem when you digest it
- Cooking increases antioxidants in some vegetables, which is somewhat healthy for you.
From the above points, it can be seen that both long and short cooking is unhealthy. You should neither cook food for too long that all of its nutrition gets depleted nor you should cook food for a short period that it is not chewable.
