Fresh foods straight from the garden still retain their highly-nutritious vitamins and enzymes versus store-bought produce.
Here in Canada we get most of our produce shipped from half-way around the world in Fall, Winter, and Spring. These highly-traveled foods have up to 30%-46% less nutrients in them because of travel time and from being picked green. You're losing key nutrients like lutein, beta carotene, lycopene, Vitamin C, and antioxidants.
And don't get me started on pre-washed pre-cut clamshell lettuce! You're buying packaged water, my dears.
