Description:Caption:
This African-American couple was sharing in the preparation of a healthy meal, beginning with a thorough cleaning of a number of produce items including onions, carrots and sweet potatoes.

Safely using a knife, both the man and woman were peeling an onion and sweet potato respectively. During such activities, when using shape instruments, injury prevention need be foremost in one’s mind. Also, just as important, is the cleanliness of the food preparation environment; which is exemplified here, by the clean cutting surface. Prior to cutting, these foods were first cleaned properly using soap, and fresh running tap water, in order to remove any pesticides, or unwanted chemicals from their surfaces.
Additional Information:
It is quite important to check public health-related websites including the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, ATSDR, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC, as well as those agencies in your immediate area for advisories indicating whether or not eating specific kinds of fruits and vegetables is safe. These sites, linked below, will also inform you as to the proper methods used in preparing various foods.
