Organic

Greetings Healthy, Happy Friends!

During these summer months when I am at home, I enjoy food shopping, and then preparing/cooking our daily meals – especially our dinners. As I peruse the items available in various stores, I try to remember which organic foods to purchase. I realise that many organic products are usually more expensive, but I feel that the extra cost is worth the benefits to be gained.

This article offers one list of recommended items to buy organic –

Another great resource is the EWG – Environmental Working Group. Their “mission is to empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment. With breakthrough research and education, we drive consumer choice and civic action. We are a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment.”

Every year, the EWG publishes their updated list of The Dirty Dozen and The Clean Fifteen. It is highly recommended that you buy organic for the dirty dozen, while the clean 15 are OK to buy conventional, or non-organic. You can review these items for 2018 at the above links.

As I return to Bangkok soon, I will keep this list close by in our kitchen, to remind me during upcoming grocery shopping trips.

As the saying goes …. some “food for thought!”

GR​OK ON !
