When to Buy Organic-The 12 Most Contaminated List

An apple a day can keep the doctor away, maybe? It turns out that apples are the highest in pesticides. They just made the top of the “12 most contaminated” list. (USA Today) Apples contain nutrients, fiber, and great stuff for health of your whole body, but it is important to buy organic or wash them with vegiwash or water mixed with a little dish detergent and rinse.

I just bought a bag of apples for work so that I could make sure I got some fruit and fiber at lunch time and for snacking. I have been buying all organic apples.

Here is the 12 MOST CONTAMINATED list.

1. Apples

2. Celery

3. Strawberries

4. Peaches

5. Spinach

6. Nectarines

7. Grapes

8. Sweet Bell Peppers

9. Potatoes

10. Blueberries

11. Lettuce

12. Kale/Collard Greens

Of course, fear will interfere with health too, so do the best you can and enjoy your food.

Have a healthy day and stay happy!


Eat What You Love… Michelle May and Mary on Blog Talk Radio

Can you imagine a life of eating what you love, without struggling with your weight, and truly enjoying food. Well-tis the season.

Listen to my interview on Middle Way Health Radio with Michelle May M.D., Physician, author, and weight management expert who teaches how to let go of yo yo dieting forever. We discussed her latest book Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat: How to End the Eat, Repent, Repeat Cycle and her concept of getting in touch with the question Am I Hungry, the title of her first book.

In this interview Michelle and I share our similar journey with yo yo dieting until we discovered a way to get in touch with intuitive and mindful eating.

This is a perfect interview for the holiday season, because this is a time when we are surrounded by food and literally need to get in touch with the question Am I Hungry?
