Don’t Forget to Eat the Peel





Most of us toss fruit peels in the trash, because what else are you going to do with them? Eat them! It turns out they’re not just edible, but the skin and rind of some fruits is actually loaded with fantastic beauty and health benefits. Kimberly Snyder, celebrity nutritionist and author of The Beauty Detox Foods, says there are many great ways to incorporate these nutrient-rich peels into your diet.

“The peel can contain up to three to four times higher a concentration of fiber as the fruit inside,” says Snyder. “Fiber is an important part of the body’s process when it comes to cleansing toxins from the body. Peels also contain a bevy of anti-aging antioxidants and vitamins.” By the way, they’re also very low in calories, fats, and sugars.

I eat the banana but not the peel. The fruit is good enough for me. The peel is good fertiliser for house plants.

You know Clyde, I was just reading an article stating the same thing about
watermelon. It,spoke of all the wonderful health benefits of eating
the whole melon. It stated that this
fruit...was meant to be eaten in total.
Leaving nothing behind.

Correct butterfly#1, I post lots of
Threads on healthy eating, which may get confusing sometimes; but just as long as you get the information, its all good. There are some I tease with, like dunwiddat, to get them to see what you see. That in this case, eating at least some, not all of the hulls and peels of fruit, is very nutritional.

that's a pretty informative article, it's to find out the peelings can hold all that nutritional value, I never even thought about it.....but I don't know if I can get with eating the peel, I've accidentally bitten into an orange peeling and it was NOT enjoyable, lol.

I have been eating bananas for as long as I can remember, and I personally do not want to eat any of the skin. There are other local fruits that I eat along with the skin such:



Guava



Dunks

Cherries
Fat pork



If you get sick, I'll come and take care of you.:eek::lol: Coger that is so sweet and thoughtful of you, but I would rather you visit me when I am well:lol:
