This intro course on fruits and veggies will give you the basics, the benefits, and all the other facts that will blow your mind on this exciting world of edibles. You'll quickly be on your way to understanding why those health geeks eat the way they do.
Two main categories will be found that divide each fruit and vegetable into their own individual lecture. This growing compilation of foods that are loved around the world, will be updated with new lectures. So keep a look out for those new fruits and new veggies!
I designed this course to give you a new found love for these amazing edibles. With each video, you'll be asking yourself, "Why am I not eating more of that?"
Perhaps you'll even find yourself anxious to grow them in your very own yard!
This course will change the way you see, think, and feel, about fresh produce. You may even feel you owe your mom an apology for all those times you gave a fit about eating your broccoli.
Get a quick understanding on how the course is set up.
Bananas are good at handling depression, they make you smarter, relieve morning sickness, hangovers, and protects against several diseases like kidney cancer, osteoporosis, blindness and diabetes.
Eating an apple before starting your workout will help boost your exercise endurance. Apples contain an antioxidant called quercetin, which is effective in boosting endurance by making the oxygen more readily available to the lungs.
The evil looking chili is a gnarled, lumpy pod with a small tail reminiscent of a wasp’s stinger, and looks as if it’s a carefully crafted marketing scheme.
Potatoes have a bad rep in the food world, but there is nothing inherently unhealthy about this nutritious food, it actually has much to boast about. Potatoes are quite filling, low in calorie and are non-fattening. Above all it contributes to healthy eating. Potatoes are a nutrient dense food, at only 100 calories per spud; they are incredibly packed with Vitamins and minerals. In fact they have more Vitamin C than oranges and tomatoes.
If you have always thought citrus fruits were packed with a powerful punch of vitamin C, peppers have them beat, especially the green pepper.
You don't have to fiddle around with juicers and peelers to enjoy this great juicy vegetable experience. You just have to lift it up and chew. Your body does the rest of the hard work on its own, like further breaking it down and digesting. That means your body has to spend extra calories to digest it.
Test your knowledge!
Great job on making it this far!

One thing I'm involved in that I find not only rewarding, but also very therapeutic, is wholesaling for the plant nursery market. More specifically, I provide fruits and vegetables to other growers across the country.
