Not too long ago around the same time there was a cholera outbreak I contracted food poisoning and of course my mind played little tricks on me as I freaked out and thought it could be cholera..yikes! Fast forward to now I’m back to my usual self and thank goodness it was just a really bad case of food poisoning.
Which brings me to the title of this post! How to wash your fruit and vegetables properly.
A lot of the time I just see people rinse fruit and call it clean to eat (Or not wash it at all). No matter how clean it looks if you’re going to eat it you should clean it. Pesticides and bacteria are things we can not see with our naked eye so taking precaution to clean your food reduces the risk of food poisoning and other food related diseases.
So here are 2 ways you can wash your fruit and veg properly or the dinewithjemutai way!
1.Fresh Water & A Veg Wash/LDC
Fill a large bowl/sink with water
Fill a large clean bowl or sink with water
Add in 2-3 drops of LDC/VegWash (I currently use diluted Ldc from Neolife)
Place fruits & vegetable in the bow and let them soak for 15 mins
Drain then rinse in fresh clean water. For vegetable & fruit that will be consumed raw (e.g used in smoothies/salads) be sure to do a vinegar rinse. 2 tbsp vinegar to 1 ltr water.
2.Salt & Vinegar Wash
Fill a large clean bowl/sink with water
Add 2 tbsp. white vinegar to it
Then add 1 tbsp. salt & mix it well
Place the fruit & the vegetable in the bowl
Let them soak for 20 mins
Then rinse in fresh clean water
Notes : For raw leafy vegetables that I use in salads or smoothies I usually do a second rinse in vinegar and water.
Why use LDC
It’s a mild phosphate free cleaner and really pulls dirt off fruits and vegetables. Not only that you can use it as a dish washer too. Get it from your nearest Gnld distributor or drop me a message and I can get you a hook up.
