I just read a study on which organic foods we should buy, and the pesticides, additives, and hormones that are used to grow them. I was shocked at what I read!
The report listed the top foods that were affected and it just reinforced how important it is that we choose organic alternatives whenever we can.
We grow many of our own vegetables, raise our own beef, pork, and chicken and buy raw milk, so I feel good about checking those items off the list. However, many of the other foods on this list I buy organic fruits and vegetables when I can, and I wash everything.
When I do bring fresh vegetables and fruits home I wash and soak them in a vinegar solution of 3 parts water to 1 part vinegar.
