Peeling vegetables can be the most tedious part of any meal as you spend extra minutes on prep time. And when you're done, you're left with a pile of unusable skins that usually end up in the trash.
But according to health experts, what we throw away is actually one of the healthiest parts of our foods.
Daily Mail Online spoke1 to certified2 nutritionist and registered dietitian3 Mary Jane Detroyer, based in New York, about why we shouldn't be peeling our vegetables and all the hidden benefits found in the skins.
According to Detroyer, there are several reasons to be leaving the skin on, and the main reason is what you deprive your body of when you peel it off. The rind of produce like potatoes, carrots, and cucumbers all have plenty of health benefits.
'The skin has a lot of fiber4 and it's insoluble fiber, especially when the skin is colorful,' Detroyer told Daily Mail Online.
