Fresh Fruits and Vegetables - Just Look at Them!

There’s nothing quite as delicious ss a bite into a fresh, juicy, flavorful summer fruit or vegetable.

But there’s more to the story…..

Fresh and organic means you are not consuming pesticides along with the fresh food you are enjoying, One might think a good rinse would take the pesticides on conventional and GMO grown foods would be enough. But when foods are grown in soil treated with chemicals, those little seeds absorb them right into the flesh of the fruit or vegetable.

What can you do?

Be fussy about some foods that are notorious for absorbing chemicals. Among the most popular for having high levels of pesticides are strawberries, tomatoes, kale and apples. Eat these organically and you’ll be doing your body a favor.

The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.
