When it comes to the food we eat, we either want to know all the ingredients or nothing about it at all. If it is organic and natural, then we are happy to read about how healthy the food is. But if it is processed and stored on a shelf for months or years, then we know it is loaded with preservatives and is probably not ideal for good health. But did you know that even the “fresh” fruits and vegetables sold at the grocery store might not be that good for you? Luckily, there is a test to tell how “fresh” these foods truly are and the results are bound to astound you…
Next time you buy apples at the grocery store, you should try this test. It is quite simple to administer and reveals a whole lot about the fruit you thought was healthy.
To begin with, you can try dropping a conventional apple in a bowl of hot water. You don’t want the water to be boiling, but you want it very warm. When you do, you’ll quickly realize that the fruit is covered with a layer of something. Wax…
Although the wax is not toxic or dangerous to consume, it might hurt your feelings to know that the “fresh” apple you just bought is actually covered in something. And if you read any kind of packaging, we can say for certain, no one is going to put wax on the list of ingredients – but maybe they should start doing that. How many people have been devouring wax every day of their lives? It’s quite disturbing…
For those who are not willing or able to buy organic apples, you’ll need to learn how to remove this food wax. The method is pretty easy for wax removal.
Put your conventional apples in a bowl and cover them with a tablespoon or so of baking soda. Then squeeze one tablespoon of lemon juice on top of the baking soda covered apple. Next pour two or three inches of warm water into a bowl.
Now you just need to use some elbow grease. Scrub the apple down with a toothbrush. It’s a lot of work to ensure that you’re eating cleaned fruit, but for those who like to know what they’re eating, the hard work is well worth it.
If this much cleaning is not what you want to do, then you might want to consider buying the organic apples. They cost more but they taste better and are healthier for you and your family.
Organic fruits and vegetable are not treated with pesticides and other harmful chemicals. If you think about it, when produce is covered in these poisons, they inevitably get into the water, which gets into the fruit or vegetable. That means when you’re eating certain conventional fruits, you are eating trace amounts of pesticides. And that probably isn’t good for you.
