Buying organic produce is very important to me and my family. And it should be to you and yours too. We don’t need any sort of toxic residue, film, coating, or gunk covering the produce we eat. Simple. Eat the fruit & veggies plain & simple!

PESTICIDES IN PRODUCE
I know that 100% organic isn’t always easy or even possible for all of us, so I want you to know which foods you definitely want to buy in organic and which one you can get away with buying the conventional variety–only occasionally.
Here is a simple way to think about buying conventional produce…ask yourself this question. Would you take a spoon with you to the stinky, gagging, overwhelming, chemical control area of your local garden store? A spoon?
Yes, would you take a spoon and ask the sales clerk to pop the top on the assorted poisonous pesticides and/or herbicides? Just so you could get a good taste of what will coat your produce if you use those chemicals on your own garden or purchase conventional produce in your marketplace. Would you go to a taste-testing party at your garden store’s chemical section?
Uh, no, not likely. Think about that the next time you are strolling through or looking over fruits & veggies at your farmer’s market, grocery store, produce stand, or your very own garden.
Would I like a spoonful of poison to make the produce go down?!
