Here is a quick reference guide for which foods are ok to buy without it being organic. I have read that Papaya’s are GMO if from Hawaii so you still have to watch out for that. I just noticed yesterday that Walmart has started to carry organic potatoes and celery. Hopefully if we buy organic, the stores will provide more options for us. I try really hard to get the foods on this list organic or just not buy them. It really is that important. We are overwhelmed with toxins with everything in our food, air, lotions, beauty products, toothpaste, deodorants, plastics, phones, microwaves, and I could go on. We need to help our body to detox all this crap!! Buying organic on these items is one less toxin the body has to try and filter through besides it just makes us more toxic and then our body can’t fight what it needs to fight. This is the best time of year to buy organic, especially if you can find some great farmer’s markets or grow a little garden. We have been able to eat lettuce from our garden all week and the radishes are almost ready. We also had our first big bowl of strawberries from our garden. Enjoy all the great foods in season and look local, organic, and in season whenever possible.
I am a 38 year old nutrient seeker. I have four children and a loving husband that all support me in trying to feed and nourish my family both spiritually, mentally, and physically. I lost my father to Diabetes, Parkinson's, and mental illness almost 2 years ago and just a few months ago I lost my sister Angie to Lung Cancer. She passed away in August 2015. I will forever miss her, but want to use my life to help others avoid disease and live a better life. A life not shared, is a life not worth living. I have been affected personally by modern day diseases that I believe are possible to avoid if you can nourish the body in what it needs. I am seeking to learn and share these things.
