We always wanted our surrounding to be clean, especially the food that we eat. One way to ensure that your fruits and veggies are clean is to wash them water first before eating or cooking. Water has the ability to clean our food and retain its nutrients for us to consume.
Reasons to wash your veggies
- Dirt on fruit and veggies often contain natural fertiliser like manure. Can you imagine putting such thing to your mouth? Fruits and veggies can also be contaminated by animals and poor hygiene among the workers who handles the produce.
- Microorganisms like yeast, mould and bacteria can make your fresh produce spoil in a short period of time. When eaten, it can give you a nasty stomach ache.
- Human pathogens like E.Coli and salmonella could live in an unwashed fruit too.
For your health, it is best to wash your fruits and veggies first. When washing your fruits and veggies, how do you do it? Do you wash it under running water? If yes, then you might have cleaned your fruits and veggies but you are wasting a lot of water! Once you turn that tap on – you don’t realise how much water you’re actually wasting. Why not get your fruits and veggies clean and still save ample amount of water? That way, you can have clean food to eat while not feeling guilty of wasting too much water.
Save water, capture it in a large bowl or the sink
How? Get a large bowl or fill your sink with water. By capturing it in a large bowl or the sink, you can wash your fruits and veggies properly. After it is cleaned, you can then use the water to your indoor plants. See, you get clean food and managed to water your plants with the same water. No water is lost!
