5 Foods That You Still Eat Not Properly

We often eat healthy foods, but to our surprise and disappointment it doesn't bring the expected benefits. And this is because we consume it in wrong way. Today we will share tips due to which five most popular products will bring you all the benefits that they have.

1. Coffee or Tea with milk

Most people can't imagine their morning without coffee. If you drink pure coffee, not on an empty stomach and 20-30 minutes after drinking water with lemon, or better, an hour after breakfast, it will not have negative effects on the gastrointestinal tract, and the body in general. However, if you a lover of coffee with milk, remember that it takes a long time to digest, you will feel its echoes still long. The fact that the cow's milk and coffee are two incompatible products as component from coffee tannin makes milk protein difficult to digest. The body will have to spend all the energy to digest the coffee with milk. As a result - instead of energy tide you get lethargy. Therefore it is recommended to drink a regular "American" or add soy or peanut milk instead of cow's milk. The same applies to tea with milk. Adding of milk deprives beneficial properties of tea which make beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system.

2. Honey in boiling water

Some people used to put few spoons of honey to hot water and drink it instead of tea thinking it is very healthy and can treat a sore throat. But in this way, honey loses its useful properties and also becomes dangerous for our health. The fact that the honey which is heated to a temperature above 60 degrees causes forming of hydroxymethylfurfural. This is a dangerous toxic substance, in fact poison that accumulates in the liver and eventually can cause food poisoning. Generally, scientists have proven that those who add honey in hot drinks are the first in the list of group of people that are at risk of oncology in the intestine or stomach.

3. Boiled fruits

A lot of people believe that some jams or just fruits in hot water like raspberries can treat colds. In fact, cooked fruits under the influence of high temperatures lose useful vitamins and elements that they contain. Also due to the presence of large amounts of sugar jam can even cause gaining weight fast.

4. Processed vegetables

All this also applies to vegetables. When cooking in a pot light, water and air are destroying the majority of vitamins and mineral elements. Much better to cook steamed vegetables, so they retain more useful properties. Well, in an ideal of course try to eat raw vegetables.

5. Cereals and legumes

It is known that the shell of untreated dried legumes and cereals contain substances such as phytates. When injected into your body, they prevent the full absorption of minerals and vitamins. Therefore, be sure to soak grits and all legumes before cooking for few hours.
