For a Healthy Diet, Choose Unprocessed Foods

Jul 03, 2012 Published under Health, KIND Snacks

This New York Times piece by Mark Bittman argues that “not all calories are made equal.” In order to maintain a healthy diet, we need to embrace lower glycemic diets of unprocessed foods, or as we say at KIND, foods made from natural ingredients you can see & pronounce.

David Ludwig, Director of the New Balance Foundation Obesity Prevention Center, concludes, “It’s time to reacquaint ourselves with minimally processed carbs. If you take three servings of refined carbohydrates and substitute one of fruit, one of beans and one of nuts, you could eliminate 50 percent of diet-related disease in the United States. These relatively modest changes can provide great benefit.”
