Quick fact. Ready?
Water soluble vitamins, like B6, B12, and C to name a few, are essential for our bodies. Many fruits and veggies are high in these, but be careful when preparing these foods, for the vitamins can easily be lost through heat or water. Hence, they are the water soluble vitamins.

Edible, invisible “peel” helps produce stay fresh for up to five times longer than normal

  • Nothing stinks (literally) like rotten produce. Roughly half of the produce in the U.S. gets tossed out and wasted.
  • One inventive company hopes to put a dent in that statistic by coating produce with a protective and edible “peel” made from food scraps.  
  • Apeel Sciences, a California start-up that’s backed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has developed two types of edible protective barriers that could revolutionize the produce aisle.
  • One “peel” called Invisipeel is applied while crops are in a field while another “peel” called Edipeel is applied after farmers harvest crops.
  • The power of Edipeel lies in the “micro-thin” barrier that rests on top of the peel of produce like avocado, James Rogers, founder and CEO of Apeel, said in an email.
  • “This barrier protects it from abiotic stressors that cause fruits and vegetables to spoil, like water loss and oxidation, as well as biotic factors, like bacteria.” Read more (4/19/17)

“Why does Shaggy say the cafeteria ran out of food when there’s clearly more in the background?”

Carl the Animator: “…hey, you’re right!’

Ted the Animator: “Why would Shaggy lie about something like that?”

Carl the Animator: “Well, I guess they are only fruits and vegetables left, from the looks of it.”

Ted the Animator: “And a mysterious brown thing next to the pile of oranges.”

Carl the Animator: “…that could be a chicken, maybe?”

Ted the Animator: “Or a chocolate cake that fell from a helicopter.”

Carl the Animator: “That’s my headcanon.”

Fruit and vegetables fall into five different colour categories: red, purple/blue, orange, green and white/brown. Each colour carries its own set of unique disease-fighting chemicals called phytochemicals. It is these phytochemicals that give fruits and vegetables their vibrant colour and of course some of their healthy properties.

What’s in a colour?

RED
Red fruits and vegetables are coloured by a natural plant pigment called lycopene. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that can help reduce the risk of cancer and keep our heart healthy.

PURPLE /BLUE
The plant pigment anthocyanin is what gives blue/purple fruits and vegetables their distinctive colour. Anthocyanin also has antioxidant properties that protect cells from damage and can help reduce the risk of cancer, stroke and heart disease.

ORANGE/YELLOW
Carotenoids give this group their vibrant colour. A well-known carotenoid called Betacarotene is found in sweet potatoes, pumpkins and carrots. It is converted to vitamin A, which helps maintain healthy mucous membranes and healthy eyes. Another carotenoid called lutein is stored in the eye and has been found to prevent cataracts and age-related macular degeneration, which can lead to blindness.

GREEN
Green vegetables contain a range of phytochemicals including carotenoids, indoles and saponins, all of which have anti-cancer properties. Leafy greens such as spinach and broccoli are also excellent sources of folate.

BROWN/WHITE
White fruits and vegetables contain a range of health-promoting phytochemicals such as allicin (found in garlic) which is known for its antiviral and antibacterial properties. Some members of the white group, such as bananas and potatoes, are also a good source of potassium.

You don’t need to work at getting healthy; health is something you already have if you don’t disturb it.
You may have disturbed your healthy body by overfeeding it, under-exercising it and overstimulating it with toxins or drugs that make it sick, fatigued, jumpy, anxious, depressed, bloated, ornery or an endless list of maladies. You can live a life of self-respect by honoring the temple that houses you. You know what to do. You don’t need another diet, workout manual or personal trainer. Go within, listen to your body and treat it with all of the dignity and love that your self-respect demands.
