Produce Isn’t What It Used To Be

February 15, 2023

Ever wonder why the recommended servings of produce is so high? Currently, it’s 9-13 servings a day! I don’t know about you, but even on my best day, that’s a challenge to accomplish. For sure, I do not hit that mark every day of every week, all year long.

One of the reasons that the recommendation stays so high, even though the people making the recommendation realize most people can’t, or won’t, be able to do it, is because the nutrient density of produce has been steadily declining.

In this video, I share some of the reasons how and why that’s possible, and if you’d like to do some more reading about this, I encourage you to learn about regenerative farming. If you’d like to receive a copy of a great article discussing the hows and whys of diminishing nutrition in produce, send me an email at or leave a request in the comments with your email. I’ll send you a PDF of the full article. I also reference a cool regenerative farmer in Vermont here in this video, Kerry Kurt, and her regenerative farm in Vermont, Sentinel Farm – check it out! Additionally, there’s a great documentary entitled Kiss The Ground – empowering stuff!
