The Clean Fifteen of Fruits & Vegetables ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ
โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
These fruits and vegetables are the least contaminated with pesticide residue, so when deciding just what organic produce to buy refer to The Dirty Dozen I have listed in a previous post, which have a high pesticide load and choose organic from those to significantly reduce pesticide exposure. โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข

The Dirty Dozen refers to this list of 12 foods that you should aim to buy organic because their pesticide load is very high.๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ
โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
Organic food is void of synthetic chemicals and pesticides that are linked to certain types of cancers and may affect a child's developing body and brain.  The term organic means it's grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms, or radiation. And  meat, poultry, eggs, or dairy has not been treated with antibiotics or growth hormones. ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒฟ
Organic food has the same vitamins and minerals as non organic but has higher antioxidant levels. ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ
โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
Switching to an organic diet for children significantly reduces their exposure to organophosphates ( a class of pesticides that affect the nervous system ) 
Their unique susceptibility to the potential toxicity of synthetic chemicals makes organic food a very important choice. 
Studies of toddlers who consume organic foods have been found to have  6-9x less pesticides in their blood compared to those eating non organic foods. 
No food is 100% residue-free but organic has significantly lower pesticide levels than conventional food. ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ
โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
Counteract the added expense of organic food by 
1)  Cooking whole foods from scratch
2)  Planning meals carefully 
3)  Doing home gardening if possible 
4)  Doing home preserving as much as possible. โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
For our health and the health of the planet it's better to buy all organic but that's not always within budget so remember what foods are the most contaminated and choose organic for them.

WHY are we still reaching for plastic water bottles knowing how bad they are for the environment and for our health?? And with the many alternatives available these days there's really no excuse. ๐ŸŒŠ
Pollution: ๐Ÿฌ๐ŸŸ
โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
Other plastic debris along with billions of water bottles are clogging our oceans and killing marine life. โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
Synthetic chemicals like bisphenol A and phthalates that are in plastic are polluting not just the environment, but our bodies. ๐ŸŒŠ
โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
One example: 
20 years ago I heard an oncologist speaking on the radio about the dangers of plastic water bottles. He said that males who drink the water from just 2 of these bottles a day have consumed the equivalent of one birth control pill,,, the estrogenic effect of those plastic chemicals is that powerful. Here we are so many years later and that message has been buried!!
โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
A very disturbing consequence of the chemical revolution of the past 100 years is the disruption of testosterone that results in damaging the sexual development of male children. This chemical threat to boys may be a threat to survival of our species. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
Think twice before you reach for liquids that come in plastic bottles.  All liquids ,, salad dressings, juices, soda, etc. 
It is possible to reduce plastic in your everyday life. If not now, then when???

WOW,,,, the little Swiss Chard seeds I planted in my balcony planter box a week ago have sprouted.  Sunshine, you did GOOD! So excited! ๐Ÿ‘
๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒโœ…
Seedlings have 40x the nutrients of the fully mature vegetable, so with continued replanting it's possible to have a steady supply of intensive nutrients for my salad all summer long. But if growing to maturity I will need to thin them to stand 30 cm apart. ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒ

Pumpkin Muffins,,, Freshly grated, organic, raw nutmeg added to this recipe makes all the difference in taste, plus nutmeg has sooo many nutrients. โœ…
โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
Battles have been fought over nutmeg!  One of the first overseas English colonies was established to gain control of the production and trade of nutmeg on the Bandanese island of Rhun - which was eventually ceded to the Dutch in exchange for the island of Manhattan and its city New Amsterdam ( later New York)! Interesting!! ๐Ÿ˜Š
โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข ๐ŸŒฟ
Nutmeg has considerable nutritional value - rich in vitamins and minerals with impressive amounts of copper and manganese. It's essential oils give it anticancer, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
Health benefits are from use as a culinary spice alone. Add no more than a pinch of nutmeg to a dish to spice it up as it becomes toxic past 3 tsp ๐Ÿƒ

1)  Pumpkin seeds are long valued as a good source of zinc and iron ๐Ÿƒ
2)  Diversity of antioxidants gives pumpkin seeds antioxidant-related properties that are not widely found in food.๐Ÿƒ
3)  Mineral nutrients include phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, & copper ๐Ÿƒ
4)  The unique proteins in pumpkin seeds provide many anti- microbial properties ( anti-fungal, anti-viral) ๐Ÿƒ
5)  Diabetes - recent studies show ground pumpkin seeds improve insulin regulation, as well as a decrease in oxidative stress. ๐Ÿƒ
6)  Cancer benefits - with the unique composition of antioxidant nutrients,  lignans, and phytosterols there is a reduced cancer risk associated with pumpkin seed intake. ๐Ÿƒ
Side note: Buy organic and if roasting have the temp no higher than 170 F for no more than 20 mins to preserve the healthy fats.๐Ÿƒ

Sweet Potatoes: Why are they considered a SUPERFOOD and a superior choice over white potatoes?? ๐Ÿ ๐ŸŒฟ
โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข
It's because NO OTHER food on the planet contains more Beta- Carotene, which the body converts into Vitamin A. ๐Ÿ ๐ŸŒฟ 180 gms of sweet potatoes has 34,590 IU of Vit A,,, 180 gms of white potatoes has 17.3 IU of vitamin A,,,
๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿƒโ€ขโ€ขโ€ข Vitamin A is an antioxidant powerhouse linked to anti aging, cancer prevention and the maintenance of good eyesight, as well as being a strong anti inflammatory.
