Processing food usually involves adding preservatives to lengthen the life of the food. The preservatives used are the culprit of many health issues. However, some of these food products still maintain their nutritional value even if they are processed. We know that processed foods are not 100% healthy; there are also foods that we thought were naturally packed when processed but still healthy. The list below will give you a heads up to know whether it is processed, fit, or not.

  1. Oatmeal or Oats – who would have thought that oatmeal belongs to the processed foods? Before we get to enjoy our usual oatmeal in a bowl with hot milk, it has undergone a long process. Oats were squashed, rolled, toasted, steamed, and dried. Though it is processed, oats still contain beneficial properties. Processing it is just a way to keep it fresh for a longer time.
  2. Ice Cream – Add stabilizers like polysaccharide gums to keep ice cream from hardening and forming ice crystals. At the same time, emulsifiers keep the ice cream smooth and whippy. These two compounds make up ice cream.
  3. Pasta – If you know how to make pasta fresh from the dough, then good. You always have a healthier choice. But for those who don’t know how or don’t have the time to do it. Pasta is from flour and eggs only, but preservatives are in when dried and packed.
  4. Low Fat and Nonfat Milk – Even though milk in boxes says it’s fresh milk, you cannot expect that it is new unless you squeeze it out straight from the mother cow—especially the Low and Nonfat milk. Because they remove cream through skimming, milk solids and the milk becomes watery after this process.
  5. Herbal Teas – Our conception of teas, whatever kind it is, is healthy. But there are commercial teas that were enhanced by adding flavors to adjust the bitterness. So be careful. Always check the label.
  6. Olive Oil – Olive fruits undergo a tiring and lengthy procedure before it turns to fat. The hard-like bullet fruits are ground into a paste, spread out, and pressed until oil comes out from it. We can enjoy the health benefits of olive oil after these tiring procedures. Kudos to the hard work of our farmers!

Engaging ads can deceive us of the actual nutritional value of the product. Many of us might have consumed and maintained food products that we thought were healthy and a “must-have” in our cupboards. That is why you should check the label carefully.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
