There's a misconception that eating organic costs more, however when you eliminate the cost of packaging/branding, you will find your wallet is actually relieved. Dr CJ Henius interviews Theresa Healy, RN on how. TIPS and TOPICS: Fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts seeds and grains, can all be bought around the periphery of the store. The produce section can sometimes contain nuts and seeds, but there could be a separate section for bulk, where you can purchase the grains nuts and seeds without the packaging. The Organic Center - has issued their ‘dirty dozen and clean 15" after extensive research into the amounts of pesticides present in the food. The dirty dozen means, if you eat from this list of foods, it is recommended that it be organic. Eating form this list can mean ingesting up to 10 different pesticides into your body, per fruit. That list is as follows: peaches, cherries, strawberries, apples, bell peppers, celery, nectarines, kale, lettuce, grapes (imported), carrots and pears. “The clean 15” means that if you eat from this list, you will be ingesting fewer pesticides. Onions, mango, papaya, cabbage, kiwi, pineapple, avocados, sweet corn, asparagus, sweet peas, eggplant, watermelon, broccoli, tomato, sweet potatoes. As healthy choices are incorporated, you will find that your desire for the processed foods will decrease and eventually eliminate from your conscious mind. You will find yourself gravitating to the healthier choices which will naturally decrease the burden on your wallet. Dr. CJ Henius interviews Theresa Healy, RN: Hello Dr CJ
