Organic and local best way to purchase produce. It doesn’t guarantee perfect food, but is more likely to be more in season, shipped less time, and handled less. Many people think that they do not need to wash organic produce the same as other produce. I think differently. Yes, they have less or no pesticides or chemicals on them for shipping – however -
they are being handled during packaging, loading, shipping, delivery, stocking and then by how many hundreds of shoppers?
So please, no matter what you are eating or drinking, think of the source and how many hands have handled, or noses have sniffed your food. Be sure you are eating clean!
Also, consider when drinking beverages from the same packaging as it came in. Most beverages are stored in a warehouse with rodents. So please, again, always wash off containers where your mouth will touch and always clean/rinse your produce in apple cider vinegar solution for the healthiest way!
