Eating is an activity that we humans have to do at least two times per day. In today society, we live in a world where the food choices are so rich and we can choose to eat whatever kind of food every day. Although there are many different choices, they are divided into two main categories; fresh food and frozen food. Fresh food and frozen food can be differentiated from each other in two simple ways, which is their flavor and their cost. Today, our group prefers fresh food over the frozen food. The reason we choose fresh food because the food is in the best condition of its shelf life. When we look at fresh food, it is range from fresh fruit to fresh seafood. Fresh foods are natural and organic. Now, lets us look at the advantages that the fresh foods provide.
For starters, we look at the category of fresh fruits and vegetables. The benefits that come from this category are that fresh fruit and fresh vegetables can provide the human body with many nutrients like vitamins and minerals (Carly, 2011). Fresh vegetables and fruits are free from any kind of preservatives, chemical compounds, food additives or even food coloring that is not good to the human body when over consume (Kristin, 2017). Fresh vegetables and fruits also provide fiber that is essential for the body (Carly, 2011).
At the same time, the fresh food is actually cheaper than that frozen food. For example, with frozen food; people have to pay more due to the benefit of convenience. Besides that, they can be bought almost anywhere, from supermarket to normal sundry shop (Conner, 2011). There is no preparation and they can be used at any time. However, fresh foods usually are available from wet market or from the farm. Fresh seafood usually can be buy after the fishermen come back from their catching. Hence, we can notice that fresh foods can be difficult to find and need to be prepared before eating (Chef Good, 2013).
When we talk about the taste of the food, fresh food tastes better than the frozen food. Fresh food comes from simple, seasoned well and good quality cooking. These benefits have provide us with fresh tasty flavors and make the food becoming something truly pleasurable (Chef Good, 2013). Even if a person is following a healthy meal plan or having a weighing loss meal, fresh food can help these people. This is because fresh food is rich will all kinds of important nutrients that the body needs. You will feel like having a treat (The fresh food) rather than a punishment. Fresh foods provide us with a great variety of tastes and textures so that we can always find them fresh and enjoyable. Besides that, fresh food also gives us a well-balanced mix of ingredients which serves in a larger portion because of the delicious greens and vegetables (Donna, 2013).
The chemical bisphenol A (BPA) is found in many kinds of plastic food packaging, such as water bottles, food storage containers, and sealing wrap. Researchers also state that BPA can be use to line the inside of food cans (Brenda, 2011). However, when we prepare and eat fresh food, we can avoid from getting ourselves from exposing to this BPA. This is because fresh food normally do not package or prepare with the existence of BPA. We can also state that fresh food is also free from other harmful chemical substances as we would not add any chemical to our food when we are preparing and cooking it. Fruits and vegetables that are planted without any chemical fertilizer can also help to promote the eating of fresh food.
