You know your shopping cart needs to include more greens than calories once you have made a diet plan. HIITs and strength training is not as effective as you desire them to be unless you work hard with your food choices. Hopefully, you are reading this before your doctor diagnosed you with health issues you could have avoided.
Next time you have lettuce, spinach, peppers, celery, potatoes, carrots, cucumbers, green beans, cauliflower, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, eggplant, broccoli, and mushrooms on your shopping list, in all likelihood, you will end up having shopped some ingredients full of pesticides for your healthy salad. Before you switch all hearty meals with flavourful salads and soups for the potential nutrients and flavours they carry, perhaps you would like to find the truth about them. These vegetables are mostly grown through unnatural mediums like fertilizers. Consequently, they bring more amount of nitrate on your plate than you know.
Nitrates are naturally occurring compounds consisting of oxygen and nitrogen. They are naturally found in soil, due to which these are also found in water and food produce, especially vegetables. Plants absorb nitrogen in the form of nitrates and ammonium from the soil to grow. However, Nitrate acquired from fertilizers and pesticides accumulates in vegetables and fruits. Large-scale livestock production yields huge amounts of manure rich in nitrate that seeps into groundwater. Due to this, a high proportion of nitrate enters our body via food and water consumed by us. Research testifies that if a pregnant woman eats nitrate-excess vegetables contaminated with pesticides, the fetus can be exposed to the harmful chemicals and cause birth defects. In the long term, these can result in reduced IQ and learning capacities in the developing child.
Here is an easy fix. We suggest growing your own greens naturally with organic manure or vermicompost. They bring in essential nutrients in the soil like nitrogen, calcium and phosphorous through a non-chemical medium making your produce natural and healthy indeed. Not only it guarantees authenticity and freshness but also brings all the nutrients in your diet that it is naturally supposed to carry.
