Thank you I found the article very interesting, as I have just started to eat peel on vegetables I soak my Vegas in water first before scrubbing as it releases more soil.

This year I am going to try and grow more vegetables, I grow them in veg sacks which are easy to move around.

That’s great! It’s nice to try something new now and then. Please let us know what you think about them when you’re ready.😀👍

You’ll need to sow the broadbeans NOW if you haven’t already done so! Unlike other beans, it’s important to sow them very early/in cold spell (Dec-Feb). 🌱 🥶 😊

I like to always eat the edible peels after a good soak. Thanks for sharing.

Glad that you enjoyed the article and it's very helpful, Imaaan. I like a lot of the same fruits/vegetables that the article had mentioned in the list. :-)

I'm thinking of posting another article also from healthline.com dealing with protein.
