Warm rich broth promotes better digestion and better body function. That is why chicken broth is considered one of the dietary dishes and is prepared in all medical institutions. And also, chicken broth helps with colds. The ingredients in the soup are boiled, quickly digested by the body and do not cause heartburn. Eating in "dry water" is also harmful - you need to drink a little water. But in general, food that is washed down with a lot of water is much more difficult for the body to digest. Especially if you eat quickly, without chewing food for a long time and thoroughly.
Why is soup not at all as healthy as we were told in childhood?
Why is pizza considered unhealthy and soup a healthy food, although pizza is the same soup in terms of its composition, only in dry form?
Why do our grandmothers and mothers consider cereals and soups to be the healthiest food, while nutritionists consider vegetables, fruits and fish to be the healthiest food?
Not harmful. "Drinking food with water" is not harmful. There are situations when it is not desirable to wash down a particular dish with water for its more correct assimilation, but these are special cases, in general, drinking with meals is not harmful.
This is a misconception, like most information about "healthy" food.
It is worth clarifying here that drinking food is considered a harmful liquid with a temperature lower than the temperature of the dish or body temperature.
