Diary 270: Overbuying vegetables
Many urbanites buy vegetable in one run and store them for a week.
What is the impact?
According to Geri Brewster, “the vitamins and minerals in fruits and vegetables begin to diminish from the moment they are harvested”.
In other words, the longer we store our vegetables and fruits, the lesser nutrients they will contain.
Suggestion: it is best to buy vegetables and fruits daily or 3 to 4 times a week.
