Strawberry Bummer!


There are many myths promoted about organic vs. conventional foods, and I’ve written about them before.  As usual, the popular media can be over-the-top in any direction. This week I thought I’d share some thoughts in person (it’s been a while!), so I’m on video for a little fun with myth-busting. Do you know why buying organic really matters?

You can get the Clean 15 and Dirty Dozen lists online easily (watch the video).  And if you want to know more about the strawberry bummer, you may find more info here.   Data can help us to make better choices to “shop on purpose” and prioritize our organic spending dollars.  I’ve also written before about the legitimate dangers of estrogen-mimicking chemicals which unfortunately includes many pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides.

We kick off our Ultimate Spring Cleanse today!  Nearly 70 folks are participating this time.  Feel free to join us in spirit and savor this week’s featured recipe: Rainbow Salad, a longtime reader favorite and something that gets made in my own home frequently.

Eat on purpose. Live on purpose. Choose to Be well!
