You take care of your car, your home and all your material possessions before they breakdown, but you are missing the biggest savings of all when you do not take care of your health!
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.
Drinking eight glasses of water per day isn’t necessary according to the Mayo Clinic because you get liquid from any beverage and the foods you eat.
