Question and answer
Which essential nutrients—carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, and minerals—are included in the recipe of a cheeseburger
The building blocks of foods are carbohydrates, proteins, and fats; however, very few foods are "pure" carbohydrate, protein, or fat. [ Both natural foods, such as milk, and prepared foods, such as a cheeseburger, are combinations of protein, carbohydrate, and fat. Foods also contain vitamins and minerals, which function in the body as enzymes and regulators of organ and muscle function.
Vitamins and minerals are in highest concentration and absorbed best by the body when eaten as they occur naturally in foods. Balanced nutrition requires eating a wide variety of healthy foods to meet all your needs. Unfortunately, many prepared foods and meals are not well balanced and are high in fats or sugars and low in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. The nutrition profile of the average athletically active female is low in carbohydrates, milk products, red meat, fruits, and vegetables. Understanding the value of these foods or their nutritional equivalents will allow you to correct these deficiencies. Read more on FamilyEducation: ]
