Hi everyone,

My post last week discussed the Environmental Working Group (EWG) and their clean and dirty guides. Today, I have another link that discusses this guide in a conversation with Dr. Andrew Weil. His points are well taken and should be up for consideration in your eating and shopping.

Visit this link for Dr. Weil’s video on the EWG Dirty Dozen and Clean 15.

Another email from the EcoMetro Guide (a wonderful Entertainment coupon guide with a look to natural, local, and green resources) contained a new guide from the EWG that defined the pesticide levels in greater detail. This might address a couple of comments about vegetables and fruits.

Always good to have current information and resources to help you make the right food choices.

Eat healthy and take care,
Judy

Hi everyone,

Here in the Midwest, we are getting close to the wonderful part of the year with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables coming our way. I look forward to having a selection of local produce, as well as our favorite CSA, Crazy Daisy Farm

Now is a good time to consider the advantages of eating local and organic. The economy has dealt many of us a rough hand the past couple of years and I understand the need for having to carefully manage the grocery budget as well as anyone. However, there are a few areas where I won’t skimp and eating healthy food is one of them. It is a conscious decision on our part to spend a bit more on the best quality for our meals and not splurge on a meal out as often.

Hi everyone,

We have a wonderful new market near our home… Fresh Seasons Market. Their philosophy is one of being a special place to shop, but providing quality and value. They have a superior produce department, their meat and seafood department carries only the best available. The deli and bakery sections are the same. Quality and value are the mandates of the store and when you throw in a caring, friendly staff – that is what it is about these days for us.
