Regram from @wellnessdawn with not-to-miss, healthy YL tip at bottom!
I try my best to eat mostly organic, but sometimes it'nearly impossible. What really matters is how the food was grown. Some smaller farms use all organic practices but haven’t gone through the full organic certification process yet because it can be expensive for a small business. Get to know your local farms, stands and the farmers market and ask about the farm’s practices.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You may have heard of the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15, but you might not know that the lists are updated each year.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When shopping at traditional grocery stores, I use the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 lists to choose which produce I’ll buy organic.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment. They research what’s in our tap water, the safety of our cosmetics, genetically modified organisms (GMO/GE) and the amounts of pesticides in and on our food among other things.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The top 15 foods with the least pesticides are called the Clean 15, while the 12 foods with the most pesticides are called the Dirty Dozen. These lists are fantastic to take with you on your shopping trips to know when to buy organic and when it’s ok to buy conventional.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And lucky for us, avocados are at the top of the clean list!
YL tip: We ALWAYS use our Young Living Fruit & Veggie wash on all produce, even the ones with skin, to prevent bacteria/cross contamination when cutting into....there was a recent recall on avocados. Broccoli, for example, is so vibrant in color and clean after soaking for only a couple minutes in the Fruit & Veggie wash compared to rinsing with only water. It also makes the produce last longer!
