We have categorized Fruits and Vegetables in Healthy Food categories while diet sodas, sugary sodas and junk foods in unhealthy food categories, but some of these foods such as Granola, Hummus, Popcorn and more may confuse you under which category they seem to fall. Isn’t it?
Nutrihealthline lists you the 5 Foods that seem healthier, but nutritionists say something else. Take a look at Foods that Seem Healthy, but Are Not
With a pack of oats and nuts and to top it off with Yoghurt, Granola definitely seems a healthier choice for breakfast. But Nutritionists say that while oats and nuts provide healthy fats, vitamins, and fiber to your diet, the added sugars, sweet add-ins like chocolate increases your calorie count and makes you fatter.
Popcorn is tricky to make it categorize to healthy or unhealthy food categories. When you dip your popcorn with butter, cheese, salt or bacon it falls into Harmful foods category. But on healthier note, three cups of air-popped popcorn packs less than 100 calories and that includes 3.5 grams of fiber. So, popcorn can be a healthier snack until you do not load it with too much of butter, cheese or bacon.
3. Frozen Yoghurt
While Greek yogurt is regarded as healthy part of your meals, frozen yogurt is certainly not. A container of Greek Yoghurt contains 100 calories while frozen yogurt with Red Mango is packed with 190 calories. Greek Yoghurt has 18 grams of protein, 7 grams of carbs, 20 percent of recommended calcium intake, but the frozen yoghurt has 4 grams of protein, 43 grams of carbs. That is 6 times the carbs and double the calories. So, it’s advisable to prefer Greek yogurt.
Hummus sound as healthy snack, considering it is packed with chickpeas or beans and containing healthy fats, However, Hummus is high on calories with just a two-ounce of snack pack containing 150 calories. We don’t mean you to completely avoid Hummus, but when you prefer it, beware of the portion size and keep a count on calories.
It is always a debating and conflicting about Red Meat consumption, and several research studies have shown downsides of taking red meat. While you can prefer – to 8-ounce of lean stean into your weekly diet, we certainly don’t advise on the 32-ounce porterhouse. Lean meat packs proteins and iron, and keeps you slim provided you remove the fats.
