When fresh means FRESH
Did you know that an apple from the supermarket can be up to a year old by the time you buy it off the shelf, and that studies show that you may need to eat TWO apples in order to get the same amount of nutrients as you would from a fresh one?
Eating fresh, local, seasonal food is sometimes seen as a being a bit of a middle-class lifestyle choice. But, actually, it can make a measurable difference to health. Here’s the first of three blogs I have written on the subject for a local fresh food delivery company in Bristol called Fresh-Range (www.fresh-range.com). I started ordering from this company regularly because my children and I can actually see and taste the difference between their produce – sometimes picked the day before – and supermarket produce.
Just click on the sweet potatoes – the ones I bought from my local produce suppliers are the ones on the right as you might guess – to read what REALLY fresh food can do for YOU.
