Did you know the importance of leaving skin on?

Did you know... that a large percentage of the nutrients in produce (fruits and vegetables) is located in the skin, the outermost layer of the fruit and vegetable? While you may not been keen on eating citrus rinds or squash skins there are plenty of other fruits and vegetables that are just as tasty (if not more tasty) eaten with the skin on, to name a few: potatoes, cucumbers, apples and pears!

Of course you must keep in mind that eating your produce with the skin on would only be safe if eating organic produce, non-organic produce which can (and most likely do) contain pesticides and other harmful sprays is a no-no to your health, therefore, if you are buying non-organic produce DO DO DO make sure to peel the skin.
