Processed Foods That Are Actually Good for You

1. Whole Wheat Bread

You will obtain the benefits of fiber, micronutrients, and a bit of protein if you choose a variety made with whole wheat as the primary ingredient.

2. Canned or Frozen Lentils

Thankfully, you do not need to soak and boil them to appreciate their excellent nutritional value. Canned or frozen lentils are just as healthy as desiccated lentils.

3. Yogurt

Most individuals would not consider yogurt to be a processed product, but it is! The transformation of cow's milk into a thick, creamy dairy delight.

4. Dried fruit

Although they lack the water content of fresh apples and berries, desiccated fruits contain the same number of nutrients.

5. Frozen whole grain waffles

Waffles made with refined flour may not be the best option for breakfast, but whole-grain frozen waffles are a healthy way to start the day. 

6. Popcorn

Plain or mildly salted popcorn is significantly less processed and has numerous health benefits.

7. Hummus

Hummus is predominantly composed of garbanzo beans and olive oil, making it a heart-healthy, fiber- and protein-rich snack.

8. Soy Milk

It is the only plant-based milk with complete protein and all of the essential amino acids found in cow's milk, as well as calcium and vitamin D fortification.

9. Canned Fish

Even though fish in a can is more processed than fillets of salmon or freshly captured trout, it still provides excellent nutrition.

10. Bean-based pasta

It is a nutritious alternative to traditional pasta for those looking to increase the nutrient density of their meals and incorporate more plant-based proteins into their diets.
