What has the opposite of junk food—nutrition but no calories?
So, essentially, we can group foods into one of four categories. There’s stuff that’s nutritious—but has calories, in the upper right; calories, but no nutrition—junk food; and then there’s stuff with neither calories nor nutrition. Is there anything that’s nutritious, but doesn’t add any calories? Well there’s water. That’s good for you and calorie free. How can one add nutrition to the water, though, without adding calories?
We can make some tea. Has all the water of water, but as a bonus is packed with phytonutrients. It’s nutrition, without calories. Every time you drink just water you are losing an opportunity to get nutrients by drinking tea instead.
