Do you grow veggies and fruits for the nutrition? That's why I'm doing
it (except for the blackberries). If I eat only junk food, I have no
energy and I feel terrible. Eating healthy is the only way I can get my
energy back. It's also the key to fighting depression. I used to have
chronic, severe depression until started eating fresh, raw vegetables
and fish oil pills.
I read that old age begins at age 27-35 because that's when your body
drastically reduces the amount of enzymes it produces, but you can get
those enzymes from fruits and vegetables and especially sprouts.
No. We grow them for freshness and taste and quality and variety. If
they turn out to be more nutritious as well, fine, but that's a side
effect for us.
You can read almost anything about health and nutrition, especially on
the internet. In my opinion, a great deal of caution is needed to
verify that the sources are reliable. In my experience, Google (and
the like) is an abundant source for horseshit, which works better as a
garden fertilizer than it is does as a nutritional supplement. -aem
For freshness, flavour, variety, fun and nutrition
Bullshit. The enzymes that make your body work are not those of plants, as
you have entirely different metabolisms.
Yes fresh veges and fruit are good for you but not for that reason and
eating a good diet does not suddenly become more important when you turn 35.
I garden organically because it's the cheapest way to obtain organic
produce. It's not totally organic as I cannot always find the seed I
want but I do what I can.
It's not about the sort of trendy "nutrition" bit you are talking about
it works for me.
Ever notice how many folks are destroying their bodies in the name
Be careful of reading health books.
You may die of a misprint.
I grow organically because there's less to worry about. And pulling weeds
for a couple of hours is _way_ cheaper than a shrink.
