Get more life out of your produce

November 28, 2010

We are seemingy forever in search of the fountain of youth, that magical elixir cure-all for crows feet and chronic disease.  But as advanced and technical we become in our lives, food is pretty simple – the purer we remain, the better off we are, beginning with fruit and veggies.

You can literally get more life from your produce – in two ways.  Scientific proof points directly to the benefits of eating 5-9 servings a day and the extension of life expectancy. And now, you can get up to 200% more shelf life when you wash your produce with Eat Cleaner.  Our recent study concluded that when Eat Cleaner Fruit and Vegetable Wash was applied to a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, shelf life was extended by more than double of average life expectancy.  What was particularly noteworthy was the berries!  Strawberries, blueberries and blackberries, which have an average shelf life of 3 days, lasted 14 days without molding, discoloration or odor.

Just think of the benefits and savings this can bring a family.  According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Americans throw away nearly 31.6 million tons of food every year, the majority being perishables like fresh fruit and veggies. And a recent University of Arizona study found that the average family tosses 1.28 pounds of food a day, for a total of 470 pounds a year! That’s like throwing away $600!

Eat Cleaner allows you to wash your fresh produce and keep it longer.  That way, it’s ready to eat when you are, vs. rotting away in the crisper in a plastic bag.

We’re out to squash this crazy rumor going around that nutritious food costs more money than C.R.A.P. (Stands for Commoditized, refined, artificial and processed phood) When you break it down, people pay for convenience, instand gratification. If you fill your cart with instant, empty calories, and you spend $150 on that cart, you’re actually coming out of that expedition at a deficit, denying your body of anything with substance.  On the other hand, if it’s a colorful array of fruit, veggies, lean protein, non-C.R.A.P., you’re feeding yourself vs. your immediate appetite.

Sure, C.R.A.P. has an infinite shelf life.  But you if you take the approach of washing it first, you’re creating a convenient solution. It makes reaching for a handful of grapes or blueberries just as convenient as chips.

At a cost of only $4.00 a month for a bottle of Eat Cleaner, or $48 a year, your $600 of waste just got cut more than half.  What will you do with that $300?
