Conventionally grown fruits and vegetables are some of the most chemically doctored food. The choices you make in the fresh produce isle of your local supermarket can expose you to anything from 2-14 different pesticides per day.
If you are not in a position to buy organic, you can greatly reduce your exposure to dangerous substances by washing your fresh produce before you eat or prepare it. This is because a considerable amount of pesticides reside on the skin of your fruits and vegetables.
Here is an inexpensive, quick and easy fruit and vegetable wash that you can mix up at home to treat your fruit and veggies with:
1 table spoon Lemon Juice
2 table spoons Distilled White Vinegar
1 Cup Cold Water (tap or filtered if possible)
Add all ingredients to a spray bottle
Spray onto the fruit, ensuring that you cover the whole fruit
Rinse well with water
Enjoy your fruits and veggies!
