Be Heart Healthy and Lose Weight!

Do you peel your fruits and vegetables?

Posted by Lisa Nelson, RD, LN on December 26, 2008

When you peel fruits and vegetables you throw away a large chunk of its nutritional value. Such as a large dietary fiber loss when you throw out an apple skin, along with vitamin C, and various other minerals.

You may be tempted to throw out produce skins due to pesticides. Instead opt to thoroughly wash your produce to remove potential contaminants. If you are especially concerned, consider buying organic produce.

All the best,
