 Eat Raw

A lot of vegetables actually contain more nutrients and are more beneficial when eaten raw. This is because during the cooking process some of the water-soluble vitamins leak out. Some of these vegetables include bell peppers, watercress, broccoli and onions.

Peeling Fruit and Vegetables?

Don’t automatically reach for the peeler. A lot of fruits and vegetables have nutrient-rich skin. Cucumber skin is full of silica – which is essential for healthy hair and nails. Eggplant skin is packed with anthocyanins which are also found in blueberries. If you plan to eat unpeeled fruits and vegetables, always rinse them beforehand.

Choose Frozen

Sometimes frozen fruits are riper than fresh. This is because they are frozen as soon as they are picked and will contain more nutrients than fresh produce. Fresh produce has been transported and stored, which can cause it to lose nutrients.

Mindful Eating

Eating mindfully has countless benefits such as regulating appetites, improving digestion and increased enjoyment. Mindful eating can also assist with weight loss. Here are some tips to mindful eating;

  1. Eat when you’re hungry
  2. Be more aware of what you’re eating
  3. Prepare with care
  4. Enjoy the experience
