See this pic? It was taken on an organic avocado farm where much of the goodies you see were home-grown. That’s the kind of eating I wish for all of you. My friend Alyson got a great shot of a great memory, and none of us grew extra limbs due to chems in our toast or anything crazy like that.
How do you know what you are eating? If you are not growing it yourself, you’ll need some help getting your information together. Here ya go.

Do you guys follow the Environmental Working Group? They are a great source for non-toxic family living.
And, they’ve got lists called the “Dirty Dozen” which shares with us the most chemically sprayed foods and the “Clean 15,” which suggests foods with less toxic sprays.
I am a firm believer in eating Organic Food. But, I have issues with the crap that is allowed even in our organics. In order to really know what’s best to eat or least toxic, that is –you need to compile your own research.
For example, avocados and corn are listed on the “Clean 15.” Have you ever been to a non-organic avocado farm? I have. I’ve seen how they inject chemicals directly into the trees. It took my friends years to have their farm converted to organic after having raised their trees this way. While avocados and corn contain less spray directly onto the plant, my concern is that it makes people think that there are no chemicals in them at all.
Corn, well we all know that corn is a GMO baby, don’t we? But, are we eating the GMO corn or is it going to animal feed? Papaya too makes the list and is also often genetically modified. Please be aware of what you are putting in your Beautiful Body.
By understanding these simple lists, you can at the very least avoid purchasing some of the most filthy non-organics. Strawberries are the worst. then apples.
But, I wouldn’t be too fooled by this Clean 15 Biz. Look deeper into why they need fewer chems.
