So you want to have your cake and eat it too.
Hmm…bad analogy. Cake (yes, even carrot cake) is probably not healthy food.
But how about real, authentic, healthy food? Do you want to have your fresh, darkly-colored, rich-tasting vegetables that give you that satisfying crunch and that instant feeling of re-vitalization, rather than opening the drawer of your refrigerator 3 days after you buy vegetables to find them as wilted, tasteless shadows of their former vegetable selves?
Say you don't have the budget to buy expensive organic food (e.g. the $4.99/lb cucumbers). But you do want to make sure you aren't consuming all those nasty pesticide and herbicide residues that are clutching to the skins of your precious veggies.
Problem is, healthy food coupons are few and far between. However, instead of selling your first-born child and buying the organic variety, you can try this simple, money-saving trick:
- Fill a spray bottle with a vinegar/water mixture. Add one part vinegar to 3 parts water.
- Spray an ample amount of the vinegar water mixture on the fruit and vegetables, preferably over a sink.
- Rinse the fruit and vegetablesin water to remove pesticides, herbices, and bacteria.
- If you really want to go gung-ho and totally clean your produce, proceed to toss the fruits and vegetables into a large bowl full of cold water and about a half cup of hydrogen peroxide, and let it sit for a couple minutes. Then take it out, scrub it down with a washcloth, rinse it in cold water, and toss it into the refrigerator. Or your mouth.
So can I ask you an important question?
How much money are you throwing away on healthy food?
