Many people are concerned about the pesticide residues on their foods. Our naturopath, Dr. Morgan Winton, has compiled a list of the most pesticide laden 10 foods. If possible, she recommends buying these items organically!
- Grapes (imported)
- Bell Peppers
Making the change to eating organically means not only are you avoiding putting carcinogenic chemicals into your body, but you’re also helping prevent soil erosion, helping farm workers health, protecting water quality and saving energy. There are many simple ways to eat more organically from buying more organic produce at your local grocery store or farmers market, to getting an organic fruit & vegetable box delivered to your home. Organic fruit and vegetable delivery services are reasonably priced, delivered right to your door, and they force you to eat a variety of foods that you may not normally buy or cook. Most of the boxes come with the ability to substitute foods if there is a particular fruit or veggie that you don’t like, and they also often come with recipe cards to use for less common vegetables.
