A majority of the time, people confuse healthy foods with being high in nutrition. However, there is a difference between a food being healthy and a food being nutritious. Sure, a food can be both at once, but that’s not always the case.
Google defines nutritious as nourishing and efficient as food.
It defines healthy as promoting good health.
These two definitions may seems similar but there is a difference. Healthy just means a food that stops you from getting sick and keeps you living longer. Nutritious means a food that fills you with the sufficient amount of nutrients (vitamins, carbohydrates, proteins) your body requires to survive.
It can be hard to eat healthy and nutritious with all the fast and processed foods in the world. Once again, Massel’s here to save the day. Here’s our short guide to fueling your body with food.
