June 2, 2022 Nutrients of Fruits and Vegetables
As we are now starting our gardens now and I just could not pass up sharing this with all of you. we all want the best nutritional value from our foods, of course. Cutting up an orange and letting it sit causes it to lose nutrients. Imagine the juice we buy in a store, how long has that juice been sitting in the orange grove juicing plant, then on truck and then on the shelf in the stores cooler. Is there any nutrition left in it other than fiber? we are not getting powerhouse of nutrients unless we buy from a produce or farm store fresh picked that day – or grow our own and pick to eat right away. You can certainly taste the difference in a fresh picked green bean or one in the store that has sat a while. I hope this helps us realize the importance of fresh picked today and eat right away produce. Eat like your life depends on it, because it does.
