5 Foods You’ve Been Eating Wrong This Whole Time

Even if you are confident that you’re getting all the nutrients you need, are you sure your body absorbs them all? We all like to think we’re getting maximum benefits from the healthy foods we eat, but we may be, unknowingly, eating them wrong and getting lesser gain than we’re supposed to.

Today, Cook It would like to share with you five foods you may have been eating wrong all this time. Are you ready?

5 Foods You May Have Been Eating Wrong

1. Flaxseeds

Flaxseeds have an earthy aroma and a multitude of health benefits. They contain fibers and healthy fats. Not only do they improve the digestive and intestinal processes, but they also help you feel full and satisfied. Furthermore, they are a rich source of omega-3, as well as lignans, and phytonutrients. However, flaxseeds, when not chewed properly, can go undigested. Therefore, opt for ground seeds or flaxseed oil.

2. Black Tea

Most people who like tea drink it for pleasure, not for its health benefits. Many have a habit of adding milk to their preferred hot beverage. However, experts advise against doing so because even a drop of milk can completely negate the benefits tea can provide to our health. Indeed, black tea relaxes blood vessels, whereas tea with milk does not.

3. Broccoli

Broccoli is a crucial component of a healthy diet. Although it is good for you in any form, it is the most beneficial when eaten raw or steamed. In fact, boiling or frying broccoli results in it losing vitamin C and antioxidants, including sulforaphane, as well as other compounds our body needs.

4. Strawberries

Is there anything better than fresh strawberries? Not only are they delicious, but they also contain fiber, antioxidants, and vitamin C. However, for our bodies to absorb all these nutrients, it is vital not to cut the berries. Interestingly, when we do, they become highly sensitive to light and oxygen, which makes them lose their nutrients.

5. Garlic

Garlic is a go-to cooking ingredient all over the globe, adding flavor to virtually any savory dish. Not only is it a kitchen staple, but it also has potent medicinal properties due to its high levels of antioxidants, enzymes, and anti-bacterial properties. Eating garlic raw is the best way to consume it. However, after chopping or mincing garlic, let it sit for 10-15 minutes. It gives the enzymes a chance to form and ensures maximum benefits.

Have you been eating any of these foods wrong or have you always known the proper way to get the maximum health benefits? Feel free to tell us in the comments.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.

blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail
on the head. The issue is something too few people are speaking intelligently about.

Hi there! This post couldn’t be written any better!
Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate!

He constantly kept preaching about this. I will send this post to him.
Fairly certain he will have a very good read. Thank you for sharing!

Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but
have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone
with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your blog.
You have some really great posts and I feel I would be a good
asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d
really like to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link
back to mine. Please blast me an email if interested. Thanks!

to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

I must thank you for the efforts you’ve put in writing this site.
I’m hoping to see the same high-grade blog posts
by you later on as well. In fact, your creative writing abilities has motivated me to get my
very own blog now 😉

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
But think about if you added some great pictures or videos
to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content
is excellent but with images and video clips, this blog could definitely be one of
the most beneficial in its niche. Good blog!

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

The text in your post seem to be running
off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting
issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Kudos

My brother suggested I might like this blog. He was totally right.
This post actually made my day. You cann’t imagine just how much time I had spent for this
information! Thanks!

You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I to find this
matter to be really one thing that I think I would by no means understand.
It sort of feels too complex and very broad for me. I’m taking a look ahead on your subsequent
post, I’ll attempt to get the hang of it!

Hello would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re utilizing?
I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price?
Thanks, I appreciate it!

Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my
blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme.
Thanks
