The fact that fruits and vegetables need to be peeled and prepared has always been your excuse to skip the produce aisle at the supermarket? Well, now you no longer have one. As there are plenty of veggies and fruits that can be eaten with the skin still on. Yes, most fruits and vegetables we buy in store are dirty from being handled and shipped around the world. However, before you remove the peel from every single one of your fruits and veggies, know these peeling are healthy and good for the body. So keep it on! All you have to do is clean them. In addtion to being good for your health and being a good source of vitamins and nutrients, you will also save time.
With these 7 fruits and vegetables, no need to waste effort preparing them. Not only can they be eaten with their peel, (a good wash is all they need to be cleaned up, and then eaten with delight) but it is actually healthier for you to devour them that way!
Unless you’re making mashed potatoes, we highly suggest you keep the peel on potatoes. Filled with vitamin C and minerals, the peel is also filled with fibre. Just wash it and scrub it with a little brush (like an unused toothbrush) before boiling or baking it.
