YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

 

I’m a label reader when I shop.    How much sugar, how much salt and so on, in the items I take off the grocer’s shelves.

In the produce department  I head for the organic section.  Problem is one  can’t always find the organic vegetables you want.    Because of this, it’s wise to remember the 12 fruits and vegetables that you should  buy organic.  These are the ones most saturated in pesticides and herbicides.    Pesticides run off from fields and enter the water table and we’ve all heard about their effects on our collective health.

THE DIRTY DOZEN.  The twelve most important fruits and vegetables to buy organic.

Potatoes

Grapes

Kale

Cherries

Spinach

Bell peppers

Nectarines

Blueberries

Apples

Strawberries

Peaches

Celery

Now all we have to do is remember this list when shopping for produce.

You are what you eat.
