TWR 029: The Effects of Processed Foods on a Sustainable Lifestyle

There is no doubt that when we think about sustainable diet, we think about the quantity of food. Eating too many calories on a daily basis will eventually lead to weight gain and that’s pretty much unquestionable. What most people don’t take too much into account is the quality of food: processed foods and items that come inside of a box are oftentimes the villain of weight loss, and should be considered.

In this episode of The Wellness Revolution, Amber explains the benefits of adding into your routine food options that are more natural, healthier, and less industrialized. Not only are the more nutrient-dense foods better for our health, they provide a deeper sensation of satisfaction which, on its own, will make you stop wanting to snack all the time. Tune in to learn more on how you can make these changes happen!
