Deconstructing Denial Learn More. Defining PFV on the basis of nutrient and phytochemical constituents is suggested 1. Chickweed, young clover, young plantain and especially dandelion another favorite are other popular forages, especially welcome when young and tender. Michael Doherty April 13, Potatoes and carrots are missing I think. It asked me for a user name.
What veggies need pollinators all the time: In the case of blueberries you also need some cross-pollination. This is easy to do just by planting two different varieties. What veggies can be pollinated with human help: Just remember to get as much pollen on the female plant as you can.
The more there is, the better the chances the fruit will develop well. You can likewise give the plants a little shake, or hand pollinate using a small paintbrush or cotton swab.

National nutrition guidelines emphasize consumption of powerhouse fruits and vegetables PFV , foods most strongly associated with reduced chronic disease risk; yet efforts to define PFV are lacking.
Of 47 foods studied, 41 satisfied the powerhouse criterion and were more nutrient-dense than were non-PFV, providing preliminary evidence of the validity of the classification scheme.
The proposed classification scheme is offered as a tool for nutrition education and dietary guidance. Defining PFV on the basis of nutrient and phytochemical constituents is suggested 1.
However, uniform data on food phytochemicals and corresponding intake recommendations are lacking 2. This article describes a classification scheme defining PFV on the basis of 17 nutrients of public health importance per the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and Institute of Medicine ie, potassium, fiber, protein, calcium, iron, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, zinc, and vitamins A, B 6 , B 12 , C, D, E, and K 3. This cross-sectional study identified PFV in a 3-step process.
Berry fruits and allium vegetables were added in light of their associations with reduced risks for cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases and some cancers 8.
For each, and for 4 items apples, bananas, corn, and potatoes described elsewhere as low-nutrient-dense 1 , information was collected in February on amounts of the 17 nutrients and kilocalories per g of food 9. Because preparation methods can alter the nutrient content of foods 2 , nutrient data were for the items in raw form.
Second, a nutrient density score was calculated for each food using the method of Darmon et al The scores were weighted using available data Table 1 based on the bioavailability of the nutrients As some foods are excellent sources of a particular nutrient but contain few other nutrients, percent DVs were capped at so that any one nutrient would not contribute unduly to the total score 3.
The denominator is the energy density of the food kilocalories per g: The score represents the mean of percent DVs per kcal of food.
