Foods you should eat with the peel on



ADVERTISEMENT
We regularly
discard the peels and skins of whole foods, not realising how

beneficial they
can be for us. The next time you eat these four foods, keep the peel on.

Almonds: Next time
you buy almonds, don’t go for the slivered variety. The brown skin of almonds
promotes good bacteria in the gut, thus helping the digestive process.
A study
published in the Journal of Nutrition reports that the skin of almond has
essential flavonoids that combine with the Vitamin E in the meat of the nut to
deliver powerful cholesterol-lowering benefits. When you eat an almond without
the skin, the nut’s LDL-reducing power is diminished.
Citrus
fruit
: Grate organic
orange zest onto desserts. Try some lemon zest in your pasta. Let the grated
skin of grapefruit add flavour to your salads. Orange peel covered in dark
chocolate is not only delicious but good for you. That’s because the skin of
citrus fruit contains about four times more fibre than the fruit itself. Furthermore,
a 2003 study on the benefits of orange peel observed that it contains a natural
compound that can fight cancer.
Apples: The deeper you cut into an apple, the
fewer nutrients you are going to get. Put away the peeler, and enjoy the fruit,
whole. 
Studies have shown that apple peel can lower bad cholesterol and reduce
other blood fats, thus protecting you from heart disease, obesity and diabetes.
The peel also nourishes muscles, preventing muscle atrophy in the late years of
life.
Onions: This is a surprising one for many of
us, but research studies have shown that onion skins contain powerful
health-boosting flavonoids, anti-inflammatory substances and antioxidants.
Simmer your soups with onions, skin and all.
