Almost anytime I’ve eaten a stir fry, there are BIG CHUNKS of vegetables…yuck. It’s hard enough getting all the veggies we need everyday, why does everyone serve these big, clunky pieces of vegetables. Not to mention that the average person barely chews their food to begin with. And these are just vegetables we’re talking about, let alone the big pieces of hard to chew meat, which is another story together.
Cutting your vegetables into very small pieces makes for a much easier to eat, enjoyable experience. It also aids in digestion. Think about it. Chewing our food is a major, integral part of digestion. Many health professionals stress the importance on properly chewing our foods, so why not make it as easy on our body as possible?
“Chewing too quickly allows large particles of food to enter your stomach and intestines, potentially causing digestive problemsChewing your food thoroughly allows you to absorb more nutrients from your food, helps you maintain a healthy weight, allows for easier digestion, and leads to fewer digestive issues like gas and bloating”. Dr. Mercola
I also love the unified flavour this technique allows. I feel many people don’t eat a lot of veggies because compared to new aged, food-like substances, they just don’t taste that amazing. Now our bodies are so used to intense flavoured sweets, sodas and snacks, plain old broccoli doesn’t really stand a chance (at least when taste is concerned).
Most people have to try really hard to get the life-promoting qualities that only vegetables and dark leafy greens can offer.
So why not make it easier?
This style of cooking allows you to add more vegetables in your diet and not even really know it.
(taking into consideration your fridge should have several pieces of tupperware with finely chopped vegetables and greens- it’s all about preparation)
And then of course, this is just my opinion. Some people love big chunks of pepper in their salad or stir fry. However, if you’re someone who is trying to live a healthier lifestyle, is trying to be as efficient in the process as possible, who would like to prepare quick, nutritious meals, I invite you to try this method of cooking/eating.
