Eating Healthy and Food Storage

Nutrients in fruits and vegetables start to break down immediately after harvest. It doesn’t do much good eating all those healthy foods if they’ve already lost most of the stuff that’s good for you!

The loss of nutrients can be limited by storing your food wisely. Try to get your fruits and vegetables at a farmer’s market if you can. Fruits and vegetables can be stored in the refrigerator to make them last longer and slow down spoiling. 

Try new foods for eating healthy variety

An apple a day keeps the doctor away but the same saying can go for just about mix of fruits in your diet. 

If there are some fruits or vegetables you’re not crazy about, try cooking them differently or mixing them in with different recipes. 

Eating healthy and hydration

Not all fluid has to be just plain water but it’s helpful to have a glass with each meal to help with digestion.
