Small But Terrible


Did you know that large produce have fewer nutrients than that of the small ones? A recent study shows that the more a tomato weighs [even if it's organic], the lower its concentration of antioxidant lycopene. Aside from baby or small vegetables having a higher concentration of lycopene, they are sweeter, more tender and require little or no preparation at all. So the next time you go to the market or grocery, choose the small ones. They are cuter in appearance I am sure our kids would love them.

I had absolutely no idea! I always pick the bigger ones (value factor) but not anymore. You need to write a book of all your little health facts. Could help a lot of people!

What a flip flop. We're conditioned to think bigger is better in all material aspects of our lives; many just assumed food would follow suit. Thank you for this info!
