‘You don’t need vitamins as long as you are eating a healthy diet’.
How often have you heard that? The problem I find with this is how one decides just how healthy a healthy diet is? Never mind just what constitutes a healthy diet.
We’ve had lots of scandals over here recently: Free Range eggs (eggs from free roaming, uncaged hens) are on sale in all the super markets here (at a premium) but a few months ago it was discovered that a huge number from one supplier were from battery farmed hens and they (the supplier) simply shipped the eggs in the Free Range boxes and collected the higher price from their buyers.
Same goes for chicken meat, beef, pig etc. And organic foods. Shoppers didn’t and don’t think twice about the validity of the claims on the cartons and it would seem that the the supermarket buyers didn’t either!
Vegetables that have been processed and frozen and stored have reportedly up to 75% of their nutritional value compromised by these processes.
We now shop mostly at the local Farm Shops and Farmers Markets where the produce is fresh that day. Or is it?
