When you go to the store and come home with a bag of healthy fruits and vegetables for yourself and your kids, you can’t help but notice that apples feel a bit “greasy” and it all doesn’t feel as fresh as it should. You put your things in the fridge and days later it already starts to go bad. If you’re anything like me, you will end up throwing half of it out.
STOP! There is a solution for this! As long as fruits are growing and on the trees and as long as vegetables are in the ground, they get their nutrition that way. That way farmers can spray their crops with chemicals. This to keep the bugs from eating them without the fruit or vegetable going bad. Guess what a simple water rinse does not take the chemicals off. You’re eating it! If you give your child an apple that you rinsed off in water, your child is eating chemicals and pesticides. If you don’t peel the skin of your tomato, you’re eating it too.
It is horrifying how much chemicals are in our food. Monsanto, GMO, you name it. And then on top of all of that, they spray our food with pesticides and then don’t properly clean it (because that would cost too much).
Rinse your fruit and vegetables before you eat them! You will be baffled to see the amount of dirt and chemical film you will see in the water when you do this. You will never eat an apple again without rinsing properly. Food will also stay fresh much longer. Since I started doing this, I can keep strawberries in my fridge now for 2-3 weeks as where normally they’d waste in 2-3 days.
