When it comes to food, we write mostly about the one that is beneficial to your health and the one that is neutral at best.

Examples of healthy food are: Strawberries that are one of nature’s best "packages" of nutrients, or banana - a unique fruit which perfectly satisfies hunger and supplies an organism with energy, tissue-building elements, vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

Then there are products that can be both beneficial and harmful. Like coffee, for some it is a healthy drink, and for the other it may bring serious problems. Also there is a question of coffee drinking during pregnancy, which causes many disagreements.

And finally the bad and "empty" food - the one that everyone really should avoid or seriously limit. Like foods with trans fats that have a very deleterious effect on heart and metabolism in general.
