How to Get Maximum Nutrients Out of Your Produce

Did you know the produce that you purchase from your grocery store may not be as healthy as you think, even if you’re buying organic?

The truth is that once most plants are harvested, the countdown begins for nutrient loss, and nutrient content continues to dwindle over time, with some plants losing nutrients at an alarming rate. According to one article, most produce loses 30% of its nutrients in just 3 days after it is harvested!

"University of California studies show that vegetables can lose 15 to 55            percent of vitamin C, for instance, within a week. Some spinach can lose            90 percent within the first 24 hours after harvest". 

That is quite a substantial amount when you think about it! That spinach that’s been sitting in its clamshell for a week may still look healthy; however, in all actuality, the nutrients may be almost completely lost. Not only is it frustrating to know that, when we’re trying to make healthy choices, that dang spinach is deceiving us, but also our dollar isn’t going to that beautiful healthy spinach that gives us all those fabulous vitamins and minerals, like we thought it was.

There’s a better way! Freshly picked produce is the optimal way to get the most nutrients. You are not only going to get all the benefits of the awesome plant, but your dollars are also well-spent. Growing your own food has so many benefits besides nutrient value. It is quite rewarding to pick those fresh greens from your garden and be able to serve it that same night to your family.
