Not many of us know what we are purchasing at our local grocery stores. Although we buy fruits and vegetables that seem to be a healthy choice, is that really what we end up with?

When purchasing foods from the grocery store, what you're actually getting is skewed from what they are probably advertising or what you believe is in these fruits and vegetables. The food system that grocery stores use today works wonders for us who like to have all kinds of fresh foods year round. The downside to this system is that these foods are stripped of natural and delicious flavors. Aside from loss of flavor these foods are also missing important nutrients.

These two solutions that are easy for everyone to do and something that can change your health overall.
