"Health is a large word. It embraces not the body only, but the mind and spirit as well;...
and not today's pain or pleasure alone, but the whole being and outlook of a man."

Organic or not?

Lisa Cutforth - Thursday, February 28, 2013

With the level of Pesticides on fruit and vegetables, some things are best to choose organic!

Checking out the EWG shortlist on levels of pesticides on fruit and veg...  I was sad to see the number of everyday foods that came up highest in pesticide levels.  This is for the US... but I would imagine it would be fairly similar here.   If you eat these fruit and vegetables (listed below), where possible choose organic.  For the others, you could possibly get away with a good thorough rinse in luke warm water with apple cider vinegar in it (this is believed to help dissolve or remove the pesticides).  (My motto: if in doubt, choose organic!)

Here's my "only buy organic" shortlist:

And when it comes to meat and chicken.  I honestly don't choose to eat them much at all anymore, but if or when I do ... I'd opt for: "always choose organic"...
