Health Tip of the Day

Fresh Is Best

If you want to get the most nutrition from fruits and vegetables, store them in a cool place. Other ideas from the American Dietetic Association: Eat fruits and vegetables raw. Don't soak them in water as you clean or prepare them for cooking. Cook vegetables for the shortest time possible in a covered pot. Steam or microwave vegetables in the least amount of water necessary.
