“Chew your food.” Mom always said. Chewing is the foundation of a good health. It is not just breaking the food, it combines food with enzymes released in saliva and it activates the enzymes in the fruit and vegetables we eat.
Hospital pureed food looks so nice, and it is easy to take. However, the patients are not fully assimilating the nutrients because chewing is missing. The enzymes in the saliva are not well mixed with the food. Some data says, we produce a liter or more of saliva every day. We need to bring out it’s full benefit to our digestion system.
We spend a lot of money buying food, and spend a lot of time cooking. But we often forget to spend time chewing the food. Chewing is where good health begins.
