Grow, Buy, & Eat organic veggies
Non-GMO a must. Look into heritage varieties.
Gently cook so veggies still have vibrant color and crisp texture. Yes, gone are the days of mushy, washed out colored veggies.
Grow your own? Keep your soil organically, bio-dynamically healthy. Skip the Miracle Gro® and other non-whole gardening additives. Whole foods & whole food vitamins feed your body’s “soil” best. Only feed the Earth’s soil with whole fertilizers, compost, etc.
Pull a carrot. Wipe the obvious dirt off. Eat without washing if your soil is chemical free / toxin free. Soil microbes (think probiotics) are in the soil.
Vibrant Soil = Vibrant Food = Vibrant Body Cells = Vibrant Whole Health
Prep veggies just before you are going to eat them or cook them. This preserves nutrients.
Steaming or light simmering veggies (remember, NO mush)? Use as little water as possible to retain nutrients in the food. Drain the cooking / steaming water into a mug, let cool, & drink. No more pouring nutrients down the drain. Don’t want to drink it? Save it for your house plant watering. Their soil needs nutrition too.
