50 Foods You Think Are Healthy… BUT AREN’T!

The food industry has a very good grasp of human psychology, and its marketing campaigns have exploited a trait called the “halo effect.” An example of this would be considering people intelligent just because they wear glasses. The same applies to food. Research has shown that people tend to consume more calories and spend more money at fast food restaurants that claim to serve “healthier” foods. Buzzwords like “organic,” “all-natural,” “whole grain,” and “veggie” make a product appear healthy. But if you actually look at the ingredient list, you’ll see that there’s more to the story. Your favourite health foods might actually be worse for you than the regular stuff. Get ready to swallow the red pill and face the painful truth of reality. These are 50 foods that you think are healthy but actually aren’t.

50 Foods You Avoid…BUT SHOULDN’T!

Our food choices are influenced by age, gender, friends, family, cultural background and where we live. Early childhood experiences with food can be traumatizing (who liked liver and onions as a kid?), but if you decided never to try something again as an adult, then you might be missing out on some truly nutritious and, perhaps, delicious items. We avoid certain foods for a number of reasons, but sometimes it’s for the wrong reasons. Science may have given it a bad rap (we already went through the ups-and-downs with butter, wine and chocolate), or it may taste or look gross (the thought of eating insects might repulse most North Americans, but in some cultures, they are considered delicacies). But it’s time to put your prejudices aside, have an open mind and give these 50 truly healthy foods a chance.
