Doctors say, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” It shows the importance of fruits and vegetables in keeping us alive and healthy.
Quite painful is that when you visit our open markets, you’ll see fruits and vegetables ‘fighting’ with flies.
That can easily put off anyone, right?
But, rest easy, there’s a solution!
The most practiced fruit and vegetable cleaning routine is to rinse them before eating or using .
Does that really kill the microorganisms on them?
I present to you 2 ways on how you can prepare and wash your fruits and vegetables that will not only kill microbial organisms, but in turn reduce the risk of food-borne illness.
This wash will also strip your fruits and vegetables of pesticides.
Want to know? Here you go :
1. Soak fruits and vegetables in water. Add a cap of white vinegar. Leave for 10 minutes. Then rinse.
2. 10% Salt solution. Mix one part of salt to nine parts of water. Soak fruits and vegetables. Leave for 10 minutes. Then rinse.
After rinsing, you can eat your fruits and vegetables without fear.
I love you, I love your health.
Take heed and have a happy day!
