Ugly Fruits & Veggies: Why They Matter (Video)

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, Today, 9:03 AM

When you shop for food do you always buy the nicest looking produce, do you reject produce that's funny looking, grotesque, misshapen? Why? Part of the reason might be that you've been conditioned by your upbringing, your grocery store, your own ideas of what fruits and veggies should look like. That's all well and good except a lot of produce that is perfectly edible, that taste's delicious, and that is good for your health gets thrown away every day. Food waste is a big ugly business.

 

Some health markets in the U.S.  discount edible produce that's in the odd looking category as in the video above. Kudos to the French for bringing the ugly produce into the limelight. Wouldn't it be just great if the  grocery stores in the U.S. adopted this practice?

 

Next time you shop look for ugly fruits and veggie that may be discounted (organic preferable) and purchase them. Tell the store manager you'd like to see more of these kinds of produce on the regular shelves. Who knows maybe all of us can make a dent in food waste. You'll be helping your body, your wallet, and Planet Earth.

What Is Ayurveda?

 

Ayurveda, which roughly translates to “The Science of Life,” is an ancient holistic system of natural healing and medicine that goes back thousands of years. It is based on preventative medicine and acknowledges that your senses and your mind greatly influence your physiology.  However, Ayurveda is not just a medicinal system. It also teaches how human beings are an integral part of nature. It emphasizes that you should live in harmony with nature, just as animals and plants do.

California drought: As land sinks, farmers' brainstorm on water

California drought: As land sinks, farmers' brainstorm on water | Nutrition Today | Scoop.it
[...] between the three-year drought and increased plantings of thirsty crops such as almonds, the deep-water layer is being siphoned up in bigger quantities than ever. The area around Los Banos has subsided more than most areas of the valley, according to maps compiled by the California Water Foundation. [...] a few years ago, Vlot said, the annual maintenance cost on his wells was about $200,000. Foremost among the solutions being discussed by Vlot, Hurley and the other farmers is storing more water from rain when it does fall. Since there aren't enough reservoirs or ponds for that storage, the ad-hoc group plans to pick several fields among themselves to lay fallow so they can absorb the water and stow it underground. The main challenge is making sure that those who voluntarily leave their fields fallow are compensated for their crop loss by neighbors who benefit from the stored water. Other remedies being considered include trying to capture more floodwaters in a really big rain, installing stingier irrigation methods and pushing for new reservoirs - never an easy fight, given environmental opposition. [...] overall, groundwater supplies nearly two-thirds of the state's water, and scientific studies tracking the drought unmistakably tie the usage to the land subsidence. Two bills making their way through the Legislature would create a regulatory system, and though most farmers would rather avoid the intrusion, others say it is necessary for the future health of California's water supplies. "We have a groundwater crisis in California, and if we're not coming up with ways to reduce its use in wet years to allow it to rebound, we are going to be in trouble," said Andrew Fahlund, deputy director of the California Water Foundation, which studies water management issues and supports regulation.

Your body is organic and herbs are organic, not so for the drugs which cause side effects and more meds. Be proactive for your health.
