It contains vitamin A, B1, B2 and C, also present in the skin. What happens if we peel the cucumber? Misses beta carotene, a very good source of fiber.


The carrots They are subject to dispute. With skin or without skin? The truth is that since it is a root, most of the nutrients are present in the skin so if we undo it, we will lose its benefits. How to eat this vegetable? With skin, (well washed previously) and grated.

Another key food is the potato. It is recommended to consume it without stripping for several reasons: in its shell are nutrients such as potassium and iron. If we get rid of the skin, we will lose all these nutrients. That's how you know … it's over peeling potatoes.


He tomato, always with skin, there is no doubt about that. The skin contains lycopene, beta caronet and lycopene, a powerful antioxidant so eating this food is skin, it is almost a sin.
