DON’T BREAK THE BANK: THE FAB 14 AND TERRIBLE 20 SAFE SHOPPING GUIDE

 

Now, while organic may be king in the produce department, we don’t have a royal bank account, and we are pretty sure that your money matters to you, too. So you are going to have to find a way to purchase safe, micronutrient-rich foods within a realistic budget. Wouldn’t it be great to have a list of some kind that told you which fruits and vegetables were GMOs and which contained the most pesticide residue so you could better decide where to spend your hard- earned money?

Well, guess what? We’ve created just such a list, and it does both of those things. It’s called the Fab 14 and Terrible 20 Safe Shopping Guide, and it will help you avoid all the GMOs in the produce department as well as identify which produce should be purchased organically, due to high pesticide residue. Additionally, it shows which produce items have very low pesticide residue and are safe to buy conventionally. In fact, by only purchasing the foods on the Fab 14 list conventionally and anything on the Terrible 20 list organically, you can reduce your exposure to dangerous, micronutrient-depleting pesticide residue by 80 percent. Amazing, right?
