Making a great effort to eat more nutritiously over the years has brought me a wealth of knowledge, but I am learning still, daily, and am amazed at what I have learned in the last two weeks. Some of the knowledge came from reading, some from friends and some even from my own mind as I had some personal ‘aha’ moments. I share with you below my recent discoveries:
I didn’t know that. . .
• Nuts are large seeds.
• There is little taste difference in Brazil nuts, cashews, hazel nuts and macadamia nuts when blending them as certain protein drinks.
• The slow process of dehydrating food makes the environment ripe for mold growth on the food.
• A company has created a way to genetically modify an apple so it doesn’t turn brown (Scary!).
• Seedless watermelons have been genetically modified (Watermelons are meant to have seeds).
• An organic seedless watermelon is a contradiction. (The fact that the watermelon doesn’t have seeds makes it non-organic from the start; growing a non-organic fruit in an organic environment doesn’t make much sense to me).
• My return to an omnivore lifestyle still has me craving to be an herbivore.
• A large number of Extra Virgin olive oils are not Extra Virgin but have been cut with other oils.
