Fruits contain sugar, so they must not be as good for our health as we think they are, right?
- Yes, they contain sugar, but in a different form (not table sugar). They are also rich in vitamins and fiber. So, they remain a healthy option!
Should I avoid buying canned or refrigerated vegetables? Are they less healthy than fresh ones?
- It is the second best alternative after the fresh vegetables and fruits.
How much should I wash my vegetables and fruits?
- Safety is important. However, fruits and vegetables do not need extensive cleaning. Rinse them in water for 10 seconds each while gently scrubbing with a kitchen sponge. Soap should be avoided.
